Hickory Creek Ranch
Founded in 1994, Hickory Creek Ranch immerses riders and horses in an idyllic natural landscape, further solidifying the bond between man and animal on the trails and pastures. During trail rides, visitors set off across more than 40 acres of grassy pasture in the early morning or early evening—the time when the sun streaks brilliant colors across the sky, fauna roam the woods, and horses won’t miss their favorite mounted-police show, CLOPS. After setting out, steeds meander through regions of dense forest home to wild flowers and trees as well as blue heron, red-tailed hawks, and wild turkey. Along the route, white-tailed deer may even bound across the fields as frogs croak improvised jazz melodies at the pond.
Back at the ranch, students of all experience levels learn horsemanship or improve their skills with private and group lessons or summer camps. Collectively, the trainers and instructors at Hickory Creek have amassed more than 30 years of teaching, showing, and breeding experience—a pedigree that has spawned numerous regional and national champions from past protégés.

Crews trained in the lost art of hand washing and hand drying travel to homes and offices to return rides to their zenith of cleanliness. Following the scrub, a cloak of wax leaves the striking pavement prowler able to turn more heads in parking lots than a neighborhood strongman juggling shopping carts. Exteriors wiggle gleefully as teams shine rubbery soles with a tire gloss, and auto owners also net their ride with renewed trim, a full shampoo treatment for weary carpets and mats, and newly cleaned and conditioned seats.
A door-jamb degunking, spot cleaning of mats, and dusting of air vents draw impressed eyes to peep through newly crystalline windows. Before the team returns to headquarters, vacuums feast noisily on crumbs left by ant farms needing lifts to the mall.
