Welcome To Etowah Stables
Located in north central Georgia, we offer a full service American Saddlebred training, instruction and sales facility.

Etowah Stables was constructed in 1997. We offer 30 permanent stalls, an office, restroom, tack and feed rooms and an indoor wash rack. We have a 180’ x 40’ lighted and heated hallway that is used during the colder months of the year and we also offer a 100’ x 200; outdoor arena that can be used most of the year with our mid Southern climate.

Etowah Stables specializes in pairing amateur riders with the best mount to their abilities and interest, from Pleasure Ponies to Five Gaited performance horses. James & Kala keeps these horses tuned for the amateur and makes each and every horse the best it can be, while they also instruct their riders for a balance and confidence to team the pair for success in the show ring.


With contacts all over the country, Etowah Stables has continued selling horses even in this difficult economy. We would love to help you with your horse whether it is to be sold or whether you would like to join our team and get back into the winners circle. Please check out our website for more information about our facility, family, clients and pets.


We would like to thank all of our horse show photographers for many of the pictures used on this website.

    I started with Etowah in Sept. of 2016 intending to leave my horse for one month for some corrections, when I went back after 6 weeks, I actually couldn't believe that the horse I saw was mine. What had been accomplished by James and Kala in such a short time was amazing. Needless to say I left the horse and am now taking lessons on him once a week. I am an older rider who had not ridden in many years and they are now bringing me back also. The attention they give you as a rider and to the training of your horse is as if they have only your horse. Your horse is worked everyday in various activities. I can't recommend them more highly. They are instrumental in my achieving my dream of riding and possibly showing my horse again. My horse continues to build ability through their training program and I couldn't be happier with his results. Both myself and my horse are happy. Their facility is excellent and provides all that you and your horse could need . The drive up each week takes me a little over an hour and for the results that I have obtained it is a joy to drive up. Thank you Etowah , I was blessed when I found you. Karen Ledford/Toccoa, GA

    Started riding at Etowah about a year ago, Kala and James helped me to find the horse of a lifetime, Tangled Dreams, and I could not be happier. They provide an excellent lesson program for me and a productive training program for Tango! We are looking forward to many more happy years with these wonderful people. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
