About Us

K. Colfer Sporthorses

Our goal is for all of our students and boarders to be exposed to, and understand all aspects of good horsemanship. Learning does not begin and end on the horses back! From learning to properly care for tack, and groom a horse, to wound care, horse show grooming and nutrition, a student can expect to be exposed to it all.
We provide top of the line care for both horses and riders. Our heated barn, viewing room and lounge, provide riders with all the comforts of home, no matter what the temperature, and an active WiFi signal keeps busy people connected.
In addition to top quality feeds from Tribute and beautiful first and second cutting hay grown locally, and basic services such as farrier, dental and vet care, we have an in house equine masseuse, and schedule regular visits with an equine chiropractor.

Our goal is to provide the quality of care and instruction you can't find

anywhere else in Northern Michigan!
