New Location

Twin Oaks is pleased to announce that we will be moving to a new location on May 1st.

The new barn, 1.7 miles from our current address, will provide us with an indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, and ample pasture space.

Nancy's husband's company is relocating to Houston, TX, and the ownership of Twin Oaks is transferring to Mackenzie Dickson Parks. Mackenzie is currently teaching at Twin Oaks and has known Nancy and her horses since 2000. We look forward to continuing our tradition of providing quality lessons and camps for riders of all ages.
