Wisconsin B&Bs That Just Make Good (Horse) Sense

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

For casual horse race fans, it’s really more about the hats than the horses at the Kentucky Derby.  And the names of the horses: This year’s winner was Orb, followed by Golden Soul, Revolutionary, and Normandy Invasion. Now for fans of horseback riding, here’s our “revolutionary” idea for the year – book a room at one of the Wisconsin B&Bs that provide stabling for your horse. Leading the B&B race is O’Neill Manor in Neillsville – innkeepers and avid riders Jon & Julie Counsell’s 60 acre farm just ½ mile from the inn has 5 large boarding stalls, 1 stallion stall, and 5 miles of trails.  Clark County’s 25+ miles of horse trails are just outside of Neillsville.  We’re placing bets right now this will be the summer for Wisconsin B&Bs to make a strong showing among those who love to ride.

You and your horses will be treated like Derby royalty by Julie & Jon, innkeepers at O'Neill Manor. Guest horses board at their farm 1/2 mile from the inn, and 5 miles of single track trails are available to guests only.
