About Us


4-C Stables opened in June, 2006, and is owned and operated by Stacey Carpenter and Ryan Metcalf.  Stacey is a veterinary technician and equine massage therapist.  Stacey has spent the last 40 years growing up with horses and competing in shows, rodeos, parades, trail competitions and much more.  She has attended many clinics with Clinton Anderson, John Lyons, Pat Parelli, Martha Josey, Dennis Reice, and Brad Cameron.  Growing up she was active in 4-H and FFA and competed in many livestock shows and other activities.


Ryan has spent over 30 years in the equine and cattle industry.  He has managed and operated several of the most prestigious angus ranches in the U. S.  Ryan has a strong nutritional background and has formulated feed rations for all types of livestock -- from goats and sheep to feedlot cattle, registered cattle herds, and horses.  He grew up showing and judging cattle across the U. S.  In school, he was active in 4-H and FFA and held positions (including state officer) for several years.  For many years he was involved in reproductive technology on a large scale.


4-C Stables has over 70 years combined experience in many aspects of the equine and livestock industries. 


We offer horse boarding and training, summer camps, birthday parties, trail rides, play days, lessons, clinics, seminars, farrier work, massage therapy, and much more.  We always have good sound horses for sale and if we don't have what you are looking for we can find the right horse for you.  We like to help you avoid horse sales and horse traders.  If you have a horse you want sold, we can evaluate it for you and then help you sell it as well. 


Our goal is for you and your horse to have a pleasant and wonderful experience.  Stop by and see us or call anytime. 

Visitors make us happy!
