Meet The Owner

Kyle Gardner

smokyropingKyle was born and raised on his family farm - working cattle has been his way of life ever since he was a kid.

Over the past few decades, Kyle's family farm has produced fresh vegetables for his family's restaurant, as well as their vegetable stand. Their beef cattle also supply the restaurant with federally inspected organically raised beef, which is also sold locally.

After your ride, stop in at Gardner's Ice Cream and Coffee Shoppe for a home cooked meal or the best ice cream in Stephentown, or better yet both! It's located just down the road aways from the stables.  

During the summer months Kyle's family is found working hard in the hay fields which produce hay for their cattle and horses as well as other farms and local horse owners. Also, during the spring and summer, Kyle can be found practicing his roping skills to prepare for rodeos and jackpots where he tests his skills by competing in roping against friends and fellow competitors. On his down time Kyle loves taking a relaxing trail ride and enjoying the country landscape and wildlife.

Kyle's passions are his family, the outdoors, roping, and hunting. Offering horseback riding is a way he can share his love of the outdoors with others. Cinch 'em Up Stables is the result of Kyle's desire to offer a fun family adventure where you can come and enjoy the beautiful picturesque land and wildlife that he enjoys so much.

Come enjoy a trail riding adventure with Kyle or just mosey on in and check out the excitement of the arena events.  Check the calendar for upcoming dates for team roping, breakaway roping, cattle sorting, and more!
