Lets see.... Okay so Marks was the best barn I was ever part of. I miss everyone so much! I ran into a couple old barn pals at an open show at MHEEC. I was in a 4-H group back in the day at Mark's. I have never found another barn where everyone hangs out and helps eachother and it seriously is like a giant family! Nobody cares what disapline you ride. If you are going to be gone someone always is there to help take care of your horse. If I ever hear there is an opening for 2 horses I will try to be 1st in line. I love the Game Days and Shows! I miss the frogs, the trails, the rope swing, the atmosphere and most of all the PEOPLE!

Pros: Best Barn EVER!

Cons: Nothing!

I've boarded my horses at many different stables throughout the past eleven years and I have to say that this is the best barn we've ever been at. My horses are relaxed and happy. They have a bunch of great horse "buddies" to hang out with as they are turned out daily. And the other boarders are helpful and care about everyone's horses, always keeping an eye out for the safety and well-being of all the horses boarded there. I've been at this barn for almost two years now and I have absolutely no complaints.

This is not the fanciest barn I've been at. But to be honest, the really "chichi" places I've kept my horses at in the past (one place cost well over what we were paying for our own mortgage!) made my horses high-strung nervous wrecks. I'll take Mark's down-to-earth, hard-working, self-care barn any day over the superficial, snooty, ridiculous nonsense I've had to put up with at other places.

Close-in, access to great trails, indoor arena, outdoor arena, turn-out, hay storage, trailer parking, people who actually ride and have fun with their horses...everything you need! Be forewarned: there is ALWAYS a waiting list. I tried three times total over a period of five years before I was able to get a stall for one of my horses and then (luckily) eventually over time was able to bring in my other two.

Whoever left that negative review below was mistaken: the horses here are happy! I know every single one of these horses; I am frequently the person who hand-walks them all out to pasture in the morning. They are well cared for by their personal owners daily. One down-side of a self-care barn is that the stalls are not all neatly cleaned, decked out in a row and ready-to-go first thing in the morning. People get to the barn when they can, but it's at least once a day. And that's the beauty of a self-care barn. We are the ones interacting and taking care of and spending time with our horses EVERY single day. Hands-on. Maybe not picture perfect...but honest and real.

The other reviewer apparently did not know this is a self-care barn - that is, every owner is responsible for the stall cleaning and aisle cleanup of their own horses and area. Most people clean their stalls in the evenings, so daytime visitors may see a mess. Mark's Stables is a friendly, affordable barn and the horses are loved and cared for with rare exception (bad owners shape up or get out - other tenants won't tolerate poor treatment). Terrific access to Powell Butte trails plus fun gymkhana play days in the summer. Fun place for kids.This barn usually has a waiting list.

My granddaughter and I visited this stables on a Sunday morning when no one appeared to be around. We walked down a row of horses in their stalls. The horses were dirty and ungroomed and looked very depressed. Their stalls were filthy with nothing but mud and horse manure on the concrete floors.
