Pioneer Tack, a horse facility and tack store located between Turner and Aumsville Oregon, has a private arena available for fee-based rides. The arena, located at 7743 Mill Creek Road S.E., Aumsville, Oregon charges $5 per horse per visit. Because this is a drop-in facility, there is an honor system box on the arena gate where you can find and sign a liability waiver form and leave your money. The facility is open all the time but it is on the property with the owner’s residence so courtesy hours should be observed. The driveway meanders behind the house and through a gate where you will find a gravel parking area for your trailer and vehicle. If you ride after dark, there is a light box on one of the arena posts. Be sure to turn off the lights when you leave.
Several schooling shows are hosted at the facility through the summer and early fall months. These shows are a fantastic, affordable option for all ages.
Pioneer Tack also offers boarding for $185 per month, which includes full care of feeding, daily stall cleaning, use of the arena and delivery of supplements that you might provide. The small tack shop in the residence garage sells the standard array of new tack equipment and supplies as well as a greeting card line. If you have questions regarding this riding opportunity, contact the owner Tammie Barnes at 503-931-1568.
