Pine Hill Ranch



Pine Hill Ranch, a multi-phase endeavor on the west side of Little Rock, Arkansas is in the midst of launching Phase II, which is the Riding Academy. Owner Bob Mullenax, best known for his highly successful western mare CH Red Hot Momma, who has won the S&B Working Western Pleasure Finals six times, has recently recruited Jessie Richardson as the Equine Consultant to assist in fine tuning and handling some of the details of starting a successful academy program. 

Located on 250 acres, the Academy barn and arena are currently under construction with plans to have an instructor in place over the next few weeks and ready to have doors open in early 2018. The facilities for the riding program will be second to none. A 12-stall barn is currently under construction with luxurious 12 x 12 stalls, large spacious tack rooms, an instructor’s office, and a 12 x 14 locker room including a kitchenette and individual lockers for the riders. Also under construction is the covered arena,180’ x 70’ complete with an open air bleacher spectator area, along with a heated and air conditioned viewing lounge. In addition to all this, there will be separate areas on the grounds specifically for the birthday parties and summer horse camps.

The Pine Hill Ranch Riding Academy promises to be a world-class operation. Private lessons, group lessons, yoga on horseback, summer horse camps, birthday parties, trail rides and clinics are just some of the activities that will become the future of the Riding Academy. All services will be available to the public, and no prior equine knowledge or experience will be necessary. The Pine Hill Ranch will be home to a string of top-notch school horses willing to teach the most timid rider or the most confident of professionals. Equine activities will encompass children and adult of all ages; riders as young as 3 years old are encouraged to participate.

The Pine Hill Ranch promises to bring the love of the American Saddlebred to Arkansas. Phase III of Pine Hill Ranch has plans for a 24-stall training facility located across the property from the riding academy. As the Academy program expands, trainers will be added as the students progress and develop a show string which will compete both in the Central Southern region and also on a National level.

Tours of the new facility will soon be available, as well as pre-bookings for lessons and other activities at the ranch. Please visit our website at ThePineHillranch.com. For immediate inquires into the equine division and for possible Academy Program Director position, please contact Jessie Richardson (908)391-5348.
