Where your horse is cared for like one of our own!
Welcome to our stable. We offer full care boarding; with all the amenities you and your equine companion could desire! All disciplines, levels and breeds welcomed. We are also home to a growing riding lesson program, and small herd of quality Gypsy Cobs.
We handle the daily necessities, so you dont have to!
Our Full Care facility offers ruber matted, standard box stalls, with optional attached runs. We believe a horse should get to be a horse, and provide daily turnout to our fenced pastures. Stalls are cleaned daily, and horses are fed morning and night, with barn provided hay and owner supplied grain/ supplements.
All you could desire... and MORE!
Situated on a beautiful and efficiently laid out 11 acres, our barn has many offerings for you and your horses to enjoy, all while being conveniently close to town! Boasting a 33,000 square foot professional grade and covered arena, spacious outdoor arena, and additional roundpen, you will have the space to truly enjoy your days riding and training. Safely store your tack in one of our enclosed and monitored tack rooms. At our barn, spa day can bow be anyday-no matter the weather, with our indoor and heated wash racks! Every horse also has access to daily turnout to one of our 9 securely fenced grass fields.
Our facility will continue to receive upgrades and new features that we hope both our human, and equine friends will all enjoy.

Breeding Quality Gypsy Horses
Bringing a little bit of Europe to the Rogue Valley.
In addition to boarding, Maywood Stables is home to a small growing herd of Gypsy horses. This breed is the heart and soul of our stable. Our Gypsies were our inspiration for not only our logo, but expanding to a larger facility, where we can now share them with the community. We will have foals available each season to qualified homes. Please visit our social media or send us a message to see who we have available! Current sales list includes a 2022 smokey black colt out of PFR Amaretto Gold and sired by NL You Know Who Gon N Dun It. We estimate his mature height to be in the 14hh range. He is an exceptionally personable boy, and would make a great herd sire or show horse!

Training and Lessons
Our new in house instructor, Sonja Biada, 2010 Trainer of the Year, starts and trains horses and teaches riders by using trust and respect as a tool to show the horse the right thing is easy, and the wrong thing is difficult; using techniques commonly known as natural horsemanship but referred to by Sonja as training through trust. Add to this the concepts of dressage - centered balance for the rider; balanced movement for the horse; the subtle communication and deep connection between the two. She has not only started and finished many successful horses of a variety of ages, but has also helped "problem" horses as well.
In the past few years she has also added Working Equitation obstacles and I her routine for a variety to offer horses and riders. This takes the values of classical riding/dressage and adds the partnership required to execute these obstacles in a harmonious manner. Sonja and her Dutch Warmblood gelding "Victor" were selected in 2011 to be demonstration riders for the dressage portion of the NW Horse Fair/Expo in Albany, Oregon, riding with Olympian Jan Ebeling. Over the following years she trained Victor to Prix St. George level. She lets each horse set his/her pace so they don't get emotionally overloaded causing stress and anxiety. Victor is currently 22 and going strong. In Sonja's teaching and training, a strong emphasis is placed on the often overlooked "basics" of dressage, which are applicable to all horses and riders. Good riding is good riding, it doesn't matter what kind of saddle you choose, or if you choose to go without a saddle at all. This is how she trains all horses and teaches all riders, no matter what their discipline. She herself enjoys competing in dressage, and also has many competing dressage students who have been highly successful, as well as competing endurance riding students who have benefited greatly from dressage lessons. Sonja also has hundreds of trail miles and continues to enjoy that as well.
