RK Stables

Finding a stable with a caring staff is not always the easiest thing to do.                RK Stables offers years of experience and all levels of boarding and training to the North East Florida area.

We are sitting on a very nice 30 acre spread in the heart of Keystone Heights just East of Gainesville, West of Saint Augustine, South West of Jacksonville.

We currently have a 150′ x 50′ Barn with 16 – 12′ x 12′ stalls, large 200′ x  150′ riding arena with lights, and an open grass jumping course with various cross- country style jumps.

Expert tutelage for our English  student riders and competitors with Richard Kirkman & Larry Ness. All aspects of the stable are observed by Richard Kirkman Owner/Operator/and Western Riding Coach.  The RKS Team is a group of horse lovers with a passion to Teach, train, educate, & pass on the knowledge of horses to the next generation of riders.

Your Next Stable of Choice

Life is to short to spend all of your time searching for a barn. We are not a show barn, we are just a barn that does shows. Less drama, and none of those folks with their noses turned up cause they have the impression that they are better then everyone else. LOL  IF you are social, animal lover, that knows no strangers we are your stable. Oh did I mention we BBQ at the barn, no really we BBQ a lot. We are a family oriented farm with great parents, children, with a great atmosphere.
