Sandy's Stables Inc.

Making Your Horseback Riding Passion a Reality

About Us

Sandy's Stables, Inc. is owned and operated by Sandy Tuttle. Sandy has been working with horses since she was, well.... big enough to hold on and it has been hard to keep her out of the saddle ever since. She enjoys sharing her passion for horses with anyone she can. "A good day is always on the back of a good horse with a bunch of good friends" is her motto. So, if you want to enjoy horses then please give her a call and come on out to the barn.

Bob Hammontree is Sandy's fiance and is in charge of the "Honey Do" list which he does very well! If you happen to see him working away please let him know what a great job he is doing to keep our ranch looking nice for all of us to enjoy!

This is just part of our work crew. All of these girls do a great job and help keep our place in tip top shape. I could not do it all without them, thanks girls!

Gidget was a big part of our greeting committee and my beloved friend and companion, we miss her terribly. She was 16 years old when she passed away on August 20, 2018. We all miss her terribly

I was up at Shanty Creek for a wedding this past weekend and had some time to kill on Sunday. I googled near by horse back riding and Sandy's page came up. I'm SO glad I decided to book a private ride with her! I hadn't been riding in a few years and she was great with giving me tips/pointers and taking things at my pace. When I was ready, we were able to do plenty of 'trotting' and 'cantering'. The area we went was beautiful and I can't even imagine how pretty would be in the fall when leaves start to change! I definitely recommend Sandy's stables -- I will for sure go back!

"I grew up with horses and never lost my passion for them. My husband found Sandy's Stables on the internet. My husband and I have taken several rides with Sandy, and would recommend her stable to anyone of any skill level. Sandy is a highly knowledgeable horsewoman and gives her horses the best of care. Kudos to you and your staff Sandy!"

HI Sandy,

Just a note to say the Hawkins had a great time in June. Loved the trails through the woods. Natalie fell in love with Chip. Thanks for letting us hang out for so long. Riding at Sandy's Stables was a highlight of our vacation.

Hope to see you next year!

Hi Sandy -

Here is a note from Annie that she wanted me to pass along to you. Thanks again for making the proposal a huge success! Photos are attached as well.

I wanted to thank you for making our engagement so special! You really went above and beyond to help Greg pull it off flawlessly. We had such a great time riding Bertha and Clipper :) I am so glad that you and your horses were a part of our special day. I can’t believe you were riding with the bottle of sparkling juice and champagne flutes! That was so sweet of you.

We will definitely be back to ride again although it will be hard to top my last trail ride! :)

Thanks again,


Maddie & Bella Skynar

"Yes, we rode today.... thank you so much. You have a great guide with Amanda, she was so great and helpful with Samantha. I gave one of your brochures to some friends on Torch Lake this afternoon and I plan to send your website to some other friends. I will forward any pictures that come out when we get home. Samantha and I had a great time and your place is WAY better then Kentucky Horse Park. Loved the whole experience."

Hi Sandy,

I wanted to write to tell you once more what a wonderful experience we had last week when our family came to your stables. Bella, Rocco, Eric and I consider our afternoon with you and your staff/horses, a highlight of our trip to Michigan.

We appreciated your guidance and patience. We also felt that Amanda and Lilly both did a fantastic job being our guides. Finally~each of the horses were perfectly matched for us. They were absolutely beautiful.

You have all left a lasting impression on Rocco and Bella~as they are eager to find a stable by our home to continue their horse riding. We will look forward to visiting upon our return to Michigan.

With deepest gratitude,
