Creekside Equicenter is the perfect place to learn to ride horses and enjoy the beautiful countryside of Southern St. Joseph County Indiana. Our barn is nestled on 94 acres of quiet country farmland. We have plenty of room to stretch out and relax. We offer a large 350×250 outdoor arena complete with jumps and an insulated 72×120 indoor arena when the weather is wet and cool. Comfort, quiet, fun and positive… Just the way we like it.
The Prouts. Tina to be more specific.
Tina Prout, Owner, Trainer and 4H Leader, has been helping kids compete in equine gaming sports as well as western pleasure for over a decade now. She shares a passion for horses, people and other animals like no other. A gentle but firm philosophy allows her the freedom to enjoy and help others. The phone rings off the hook at times with people calling her for equine advice.
CreekSide EquiCenter began many, many years ago with a dream. Her passion for horses and the love of helping others drove her to learn as much as possible about each. A steady set of events and a clear focus is seeing a dream come true. From the purchase of a 49 acre farm with the right setting and ground for the business, to the peers and mentoring of successful business associates and friends. CreekSide EquiCenter is a tribute to a lot of hard work and opportunities coming together. We thank the Lord for all the many blessings He shares with us each day.
It is easy for her husband, me, to write so many good things about a great person.
She makes it easy 🙂 Come see for yourself. Get to know her a little…
Creekside resides against the Yellow Bank Creek in St. Joseph County, Indiana. It isn’t a very big creek but when it rains, it roars. We enjoy a quiet, country setting that isn’t too far from civilization. Creekside is just minutes south of South Bend an only minutes north of Plymouth. There is easy access from US31 between South Bend and Indianapolis. We’re even minutes from Potato Creek State Park. Potato Creek has miles of horse trails and great camping facilities.
We’d like to take a little time here to thank a few family and friends that have helped us get started and support us daily. Lets start with our parents. Both sides are very supportive even when they may not understand us sometimes.
Last but not least… or rather the best for last… We’d like to thank God for the opportunities and blessings He provides daily. We have two special inspirations that keep us going and doing what we do. He makes it all possible…
Over 35 years working with horses and riders of all types and ages experience the joy of horsemanship. It doesn’t matter if you like to jump, ride trails, dabble in Dressage, or just groom your horse. We have fun for everyone.
Over the years we have lost count of all the many wonderful students who have ridden at Creekside. Many are college age or now married. Time flies by when you’re having fun.
