At Meadow Lane
We believe a healthy horse is a happy one. Well-fed, well-exercised, well-loved. We are a prestigious boarding stable located in Rockwall, Texas. In partnership with Shenanigan Stables, we provide:
Superior Boarding Facilities
Secure, professionally operated stables with indoor and outdoor arenas and over three miles of pasture bordering trails to ride on. Your horse’s comfort is paramount to our service.
We look after your horses like they are our own - better feed, better hay, better care. Twice daily cleaning of padded floor stalls, regular opportunities for exercise, and daily turn-out. We take the health and well-being of your horse seriously.
Show Ribbon Riding Skills
Shenanigan Stables instructors are all about the joy of riding, for horse and rider. From beginner to the show ring, Jordan and Hope take you to the next level at your pace.
“A true equestrian does not look at the horse with their eyes; they look at them with their heart.”
The Meadow Lane Experience
You and your horse will enjoy 29 acres of open space to live, exercise, train, and socialize in. We provide pasture and barn accommodations for owned or leased horses, specializing in the American Saddlebred and Morgan Horse breeds. Our professional horse trainers cater to every level of horsemanship, and all horses receive the same level of care and attention.
We love horses just as much as you do, and it shows.
Barn-wide Health Programs
We focus on the horse’s individual needs. Regular cleaning and maintenance of buildings, arenas, and pastures are part of our barn wide parasite control program. All horses require complete vaccination and a negative Coggins test before boarding.

The professional trainers at Shenanigan Stables’ have provided their students with the foundational skills, knowledge, and experience to become confident and able riders for over ten years. They believe that learning to ride or competing in shows should be an enjoyable experience. Their mantra is one of “if it’s not fun, what’s the point?”
Christine New, the owner of Meadow Lane Equestrian Center, started riding Quarter horses when she was eight and loved every moment she spent caring, riding, and competing with her AQHA chestnut mare, Red. As Meadow Lane Equestrian Center owner, she gets to share her passion for horses with others and provide their equine friends with the best care.
At Meadow Lane, the welfare of horses and riders always comes first. She and her staff work hard to ensure all horses are well cared for, treated equally, and the property is maintained to a high standard. When not working, Christine enjoys attending regional competitions with her favorite breed, the American Saddlebred.
