Comments: (9/26/14) - "Wow, what a fantastic place; beautiful very clean barn and stalls, so close to interstate. Judy and her husband met me at the barn, helped me unload my horses and feed and water them. Judy cleaned my trailer and almost wouldn't take a tip from me. Wonderful, wonderful people and love their place. I could go on and on what they did for me. You won't go wrong staying here! Thank you Judy; I hope to stay there again.". . . (2/10/15) - "We had a wonderful experience overnighting with the Holtzmans. Judy's husband was waiting for us at the bottom of the driveway with a flashlight so we wouldn't miss our turn, and they immediately made us feel at home. They had a stall ready for our horse and we were able to turn him out in the covered arena for a bit to stretch his legs. The facility is convenient to the interstate and the barn was safe with large stalls. We had a fantastic experience and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who needs overnight stabling in the area. Thanks again!!!". . . (1/31/16) - "Fabulous place! We were met by the owners and our every need was met with a smile. The stalls were immaculate and they were HUGE!!!!!!!!! The water buckets were equally as clean and filled to the top. We had our living quarters trailer and we hooked to the electric with absolutely NO issues!!!!! Easy to find, easy in and out with a circle drive and some of the friendliest folks I've met in a long time. I can only hope that my travels take me to this area again as I'd love to stay and have a longer chat!". . . (6/26/16) - "Mr and Mrs Holtzman went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable . Upon a very late arrival we were met with great hospitality . I recommend this facility to all traveling equine families. We were pleased and our horses were also pleased to break up our trip so they got a break from the horse trailer. Thank you Mr and Mrs Holtzman. The Sealy Family :-)". . . (8/28/16) - "Very nice family. Met us when we arrived. Nice big and clean stall. Would not hesitate to stay again and will do so on our return trip. Thank you for a pleasant first experience with my treasured mare.". . . (9/15/16) - "I couldn't have asked for anything better! We got in really late but the owners were up and waiting for us. The horses had a beautiful green paddock with just enough space to roam, but not enough to act goofy and get hurt. Easy RV hook up, easy in and out. Thank you so much!!!"

Comments: (8/30/15) - "We stopped over at Circle L twice during August 2015 with our 5 year old mare. We HIGHLY recommend Circle L and will definitely stop there again in the future. Mrs Langston was a great host - responsive, reliable, helpful, friendly and flexible. Her facilities are wonderful, quiet and private with good grass and plenty of parking. Circle L is only a few minutes from the highway and a perfect stopping point on the way from Texas or Louisiana. Blytheville has a good choice of hotels and we loved the Chile Relleno at El Puerto!.". . . (11/5/15) - "Stayed one night in October passing through to Louisiana. This is a great place to stay. We were met promptly by the barn manager who is a very nice fellow. Our horses had stalls across from each other so they could see each other. We were able to turn our horses out in the indoor arena so they could roll and have some freedom before putting them away. The stalls were huge and bedded deeper than mine at home. There was a wheelbarrow available to pick out the stalls. The place was spotless! I would stay here again.". . . (7/16/16) - "Best place we've stayed at with our 2 horses! Very clean facility, very easy access, stalls were clean and pre-bedded, very friendly people with everything you need. Many stalls and great arena!". . . (8/6/16) - "If you are ever traveling south there is an awesome equine motel in Blythesville, Arkansas named CIRCLE L EQUINE. I moved my horses from Missouri to Florida this week and had the truck checked before I left. I still had trouble on the interstate that took over 5 hours to fix. In the middle of the night Susie Langston opened her barn for me. Her facility is beautiful; clean, extremly well thought out, easy access for large rigs, large, well bedded stalls and cared for with lots of love by one of the nicest people i have ever met; Roger. Susie was extremely kind, understanding, friendly and knowledgeable. She helped me so much and relieved so much stress. I was so worried about the horses and once they were tucked in to their stalls till the evening (just too hot to drive during the day) it made me feel everything was going to be ok! She also checked my horses and watered them through out the day. She was very concientious and helpful. It was a blessing! If you ever travel that way with horses on I-55 it is worth it to stop. Hopefully, it will be a planned stop for you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Thank you!". . . (8/18/16) - "Great set up and very close to the highway. Excellent stalls and host friendliness! Pretty close to hotels and restaurants. A perfect stop over to-from Texas.". . . (10/28/16) - "Would definitely come back again. Susie was so wonderful and helpful to us."

Comments: (11/10/15) - "Very nice couple and very accommodating. Arrived while the rain was pouring down.They were very helpful and although our horses did not like the box stalls (no fault of owners), they rearranged their barn to accommodate our horses in open pens with barn shelters....even made cookies for us before we left in the morning. Truly good people."

Comments: (6/10/17) - "Love this place! Saddle Creek is by far one of the best places that I have laid over at with my horses. Facility is beautiful, stalls are cozy, and the apartment is super clean and cozy, too. Enough room for a large rig. Lori is amazing to deal with!". . . (6/16/17) - "This facility was beautiful! Lori and her family were so helpful. We were thrilled to find out there was an apartment in the barn we could stay in. It, too, like the rest of the facility was amazing! They have paid close attention to the little things and you can tell. I would highly recommend this location.". . . (7/12/17) - "This is the BEST place. Seriously, this place is above and beyond. So clean, so friendly, so thoughtful. The pasture was immaculate. We were able to relax here after a blow out on I-40. Lori even picked us up 4 new tires so we'd be able to stay on our schedule. I can not say enough good things about this place and the people."

Comments: (7/9/12) - "Bobby and Cathy were so so nice. We felt like they were our nextdoor neighbors. Both were extremely knowledgeable with horses because their daughter competitively rodeoed in school and they currently have horses. Their location was very convenient to the interstate and easy to get access. Their house, barn, and property were immaculate. We even got to swim in their pool. Before we left, they sent us on our journey home with some of the best tomatoes I have eaten in a long long time!! I HIGHLY recommend staying with them. They are "salt of the earth" folks! We wish them all the best!". . . (8/11/12) - "The Bowers were AWESOME. Nicest people on the planet. They went above and beyond to help us with everything we needed.". . . (6/5/15) - "We were highly impressed with our stay! These great folks went above and beyond to be gracious hosts to us! Absolutely would recommend to anyone!". . . (4/18/17) - "This was the most peaceful place we stayed at along our way across country. Kathy and Bobby are a delight and we enjoyed visiting with them. Our horses were happy in a large safe turnout pasture. The sunset was wonderful and the road in and out was clear and smooth. A very restful evening for our horses and us."
