About Us

Stonehouse Stables is a Hunt Seat Equestrian facility proud to have 24 years of experience providing lessons, boarding, competitions, and sales. We  prioritize the care of our horses and promote a family friendly atmosphere. We are conveniently located near Colonial Williamsburg with  easy access from I-64.

Stonehouse Stables is inspired by Tara Best’s (pictured above) love and passion for horses. With the help of Cheryl and Mayes Mathews, she was able to accomplish her dream of running a barn. Growing up in Williamsburg and attending college at nearby Christopher Newport University, Tara brings her riding and teaching expertise as well as her business knowledge to this family owned and operated horse farm in Upper James City County.

Please explore this website to learn more about the many activities of our  facility.  Let us know if you have questions or comments as we love to hear from you.  And by all means please visit us!  Call today at 757-566-0666 to see how we can help you and your family (including your horses or ours) fulfill our motto:  Stonehouse Stables, where horses meet families.
