Wildwood is pleased to introduce the Standing Tall Life Skills Program for at risk kids. Under the direction of Kimberly A. Lynch, PATH Instructor, we will be use our horses to assist us in teaching the kids life skills which will carry into adulthood. The program is an eight week adventure for kids ages seven to twelve which will begin in June. We are now accepting applications for volunteers from May 1 --30th as side walkers and mentors. Volunteers may also assist with the kids yoga, arts and crafts, etc.
Our program is designed to provide a safe and caring environment which will not only strengthen the kids physically, but improve social and communications skills.
We look forward to our first class!

Coming Soon! We will be improving our operation by adding a new office and gift shop. This will improve our check-in procedures and reduce congestion in the hallway. Our gift shop will offer a selection of T-shirts and other items to purchase.
We are excited to bring new attractions such as the Kids' wagon train and food station as well as our corn hold and horse shoe games. There will be special events, tournaments and educational programs with an equestrian theme coming too! Stay tuned as we expand our operation!

On May 5, 2017, Georgia Girl was found dead in the ditch on Westchester Road. She had no apparent injuries so we assume that she was hit by a vehicle. My heart was broken. Georgia was a rescue dog. I got her from my brother Ray Spivey. When he got Georgia, she was pregnant and birthed 11 puppies. Ray was able to get the surviving eight puppies adopted, but no one would take Georgia. She was a wild dog child who liked to roam at night and hunt and would not be contained by fences or chains or kennels. She was a free spirit. Georgia came to live at Wildwood Stables where she lived out her live under her own terms. She was a free spirit.
My brother Ray died on February 9, 2017. ...
