Comments:(9/12/05) - "Nice stable, indoor riding heated, large outdoor riding arena with bleachers, lots of pasture space and many friendly boarders.". . .(8/3/06) - "Mr. Halstead went above expectations when he sensed our uneasy feeling about there not being someone on the premises at night (he lives nearby.) We were traveling with a newly acquired colt and 2 yr old. He offered to let us "camp out" in the barn office to ease our anxiety. (Very thoughtful). He even came over early the next morning to help us retrailer our boys. Mr. Halstead will soon have a great old home refinished next to the stables for overnight guests.". . . (8/7/14) - "It was a very comfortable stay for both horses and humans. Also very friendly and caring service from the manager and workers!". . . (8/21/14) - "Very friendly staff and plenty of stalls in an encoded barn/arena! Restrooms available as well.". . . (11/16/14) - "Very great people and helped us to find the best place for truck repair also! Recommend them for sure! Nothing too fancy but just like home feeling! Thanks so much; will stop in again anytime!". . . (8/7/15) - "I have stayed at the Circle H Stables several times. It is a very nice facility with large stables and easy access from Highway 14. The owner, Dick Halstead, is a very nice and knowledgeable horseman and will go out of his way to help make your stay comfortable and safe. If you choose to stay in your horse trailer Mr. Halstead lives right by the stables. There's also a cute little creek that runs right behind the stables for your enjoyment.". . . (9/16/15) - "I spent many years moving horses cross-country but until a couple of weeks ago, I'd not moved my mother's horse and four goats across this great nation. I spoke with Mister Halstead, blew our timeline and eventually arrived at his place around 3 in the morning. He told me what I needed to know and provided our horse with a roomy, nice open stall with about two feet of straw in it for her aching feet. I had an arena to walk her out in, water, a bathroom, and the go- ahead to park our entire wagon train in his driveway. I met him the next day and he said he was sorry he hadn't told us about his couchy lounge!!! I met a few of his boarders that morning and everyone was wonderful. This man cares about you getting where you need to go and only cares that you clean up after yourself and close gates behind you. I got to meet him after he unloaded a group of horses for auction and he was nice as pie. It ain't the Ritz but he does care. I did not mark '24 hour monitoring' because that was my job, nor did I mark, 'proximity to food and lodging'. Three miles back the way you came puts you right on the strip. A very homey place with homey expectations. I cannot thank him enough for his hospitality. If you ever go to him, leave him a nice review....He's a damned lighthouse, far as I'm concerned. Even his barn cats were all cuddly."
