The Wild West: Raton
Jackson Stables - Where the Horses come First

   A quality horse boarding facility in northeastern New Mexico has been a long-standing dream of Linda Jackson. But the back burner kept this thought simmering for many years while Linda was busy pursuing a 26-year teaching career and stabling horses on the side. Although she enjoyed teaching high school students, she eventually made the decision to “change horses in midstream”. Thus, she leaped into the stream rather than continuing to just dangle her toes, and the dream began.  

   A gentle push from friends and relatives were just what Linda needed to adopt the “You go, Girl” attitude. She focused on the dream and nothing stopped its progress — not even the wet weather and MUD! Consequently, Jackson Stables is now able to offer a fine facility thanks to both Denver Feldman and David Gulley of Feldman Construction. Linda just turned the plans over to them and let them do their job.

“The reason I board my horse at Linda Jackson’s is because she keeps her place very nice. Another thing is that she helps me feed and fill up his water tank when I can’t make it.” — Ryan F.

   Local residents as well as travelers will find a clean, quality facility at a convenient location. Monthly and overnight stabling is available in a new nine-stall barn with breezeway. Each stall has mats and individual runs. In addition, there’s a three-stall barn with large paddocks, a hay barn, round pen, outdoor arena, and parking for trailers. Owners of current horses boarded reside in Raton and California.

“Linda is thoughtful, meticulous, and honest. But most of all, she has a profound love of animals, especially horses. I would recommend her to anybody.” — Jennifer S.
