Cousin Camp 2011


(Click the photo to open the slideshow.)

This is the fifth year of Cousins Camp, when we have our grandchildren at our place in Fish Creek for a week. The highlight every year is a visit to Kurtz Corral, and we save it until the last day before the parents return. As always, the kids love it, and we thank you for being such a wonderful host to them all... See you next year!

New Years Eve Candlelight Ride - December 31, 2009

(Hover over image to reveal options.)

With over 20 riders of all ages, the fun filled one-hour ride throughout the woods of Door County was a huge success. After the ride everyone enjoyed a cup of hot cider or a glass of champagne around the fireplace. Fresh shrimp with cocktail sauce and lasagna with garlic bread was served as the post ride dinner.

Rachel, Roxana, Yvette & Maria - September 2010

"Thank you for a great weekend of trail riding! Even with horses of our own back home, it was nice to get away and do a trail ride somewhere else!

Your Staff was courteous and pleasant to work with. They did a nice job selecting horses that would be good skill/personality matches for everyone in our group. We had different skill levels in both the rides we did and it didn't cramp our style if we did more walking or trotting. It was nice to be out and enjoy the nice weather and company.

They were especially accomodating when the mare I started out on just didn't feel right under me. He quickly grabbed me a different mare, and she and I had a nice ride!

The wooded areas of the trails were so pretty and it was fun to have a creek to cross. The rest of the countryside was appealing and enjoyable to see from horseback.

We had Lucas for our trail guide both times and was fun to ride with! He also checked on us regularly to make sure our equipment was good and everyone was comfortable, etc."

Christina Gallison - Summer 2010



"For my second time riding a horse ever, Kurtz Corral made my experience relaxing and enjoyable! I was so impressed with the first time I had been there it was silly not to come back and try it again. The entire experience from the minute we pulled onto the dirt road into the Corral up until the time I was on the horse walking through the beautiful open fields and forest was something I will never forget. The guides were helpful and encouraging to help keep everyone comfortable and avoid scaring the horses. I was able to spend some extra time with the owner and some close family and friends after the ride making it a perfect ending to a perfect day. I will definitely be coming back to ride again!"

~Submission from Facebook by Melissa Junk.



"Our family tries to get a trail ride in while on vacation. Kurtz Corral shines above the rest of the stables that we have been to--including others in WI, MO, and TN. Keep up the great work--we loved how we used treats to greet the horses and the trail guide was very attentive to our child's concern in horse handling. We will be back!"
