Alison Grosse is Spring Creek Equestrian Center's owner and trainer. She was smitten with horses at an early age. She began riding when just two years old, and by the time she was four, she was participating in local horse shows. She quickly became an accomplished rider and in her teens she was ranked among the top ten in Western Pleasure at the US National Arabian Championship Horse Show. Since then, Alison has earned national, regional, and local awards in horsemanship.
Alison has been in the equestrian business for over 25 years. She established the Spring Creek Equestrian Center (SCEC) in 1995 and in 2012, she moved it to Pardee Road in Three Oaks, Michigan. The barn is now teeming with riders and horses (as well as several other animals!)
Alison provides a comfortable atmosphere for every level of rider. She excels as a trainer for riders and horses alike, resulting in her students bringing home several national wins and regional titles, as well as local show wins. Student accomplishments include 3rd and 4th at U.S. National Championship Shows, Grand Champion, Reserve Champion, and many top 10's at the Canadian National Championship Shows, Reserve Champion at the Scottsdale Championship Show in Arizona, and many more top tens and top twenty Championships.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM SPRING CREEK
Anya is a 10-year old Halflinger mare. She arrived at Spring Creek on August 19th and she is our newest lesson horse!
Haflingers are small, sturdy chestnut colored horses with cream colored manes and tails. While they stand only 13 to 15 hands high, they are horses, not ponies. They are descended from the Tyrolean ponies of Austria and northern Italy, originating in the village of Halflinger in Italy.
Halflingers are powerful and hardy. They were originally used by farmers for pulling, as pack horses, and for transportation. They are multi-talented horses known for their longevity and excellent disposition. They are intelligent, sensible, and known to be people-oriented with a docile and friendly nature. They are used for trail riding, endurance, therapeutic riding, low to mid-level dressage, jumping, vaulting, and driving.
Come to Spring Creek Equestrian Center and meet Anya!
