Coyote Springs is a 30 acre ranchito just east of San Antonio, Texas just 7 minutes off the I-10. Owned by Barbara Whitmire and Vaughan Henderson, we are a family ranch designed to meet the needs of all members of the family, both 4 legged and 2 legged.
We offer a full court dressage ring, a 120 x 240 jumping arena with a full course of fences, and 20 acres of cross-country jumps, water, bank, and ditch complexes up to Novice/Training level. There are great paths for hacking and conditioning.
Our new, airy barn has 16 12x12 stalls that can all open up to become 12x24 stalls. The shade, location, and cross-breeze make this barn a dream even in the middle of a hot Texas summer, but it stays sheltered and cozy through the winters. We also have 7 30-amp RV hookups.
We are open for schooling, boarding and lay-overs for those traveling through.
We host everything from derby's, clinics, and small hunter jumper shows to blacksmithing and blademaking clinics.
Come on out and join the fun!!
