Today, November 14, 2018, Jim crossed the rainbow bridge. He was approximately 26 years old and has been at this stable for many of those years. Due to his advancing age, he was retired from trail rides. He was being trained by Susan Greer-Day as a therapy horse for the Standing Tall Life Skills Program for kids. He never complained and knew he would get a reward from Susan when he was done. He took to his new assignment well. We will miss our sweet lovable boy!

On October 5, 2018, we lost a wonderful co-worker, Tonto. He has been at our barn for about 13 of his 26 years. He was a favorite of many of our trail riders, a gentleman at all times. The vet diagnosed him with collic. We will miss him!

Wildwood is pleased to introduce the Standing Tall Life Skills Program for at risk kids. Under the direction of Kimberly A. Lynch and Susan Greer-Day, PATH Instructors, we will 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 ...

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. ...
