Our farm motto is “Where Dreams Come True”.
This is our goal -- service to you. Are you wanting to own your personal horse? Possibly in need of riding lessons, or a horseback riding experience for an hour or more?

Welcome! Come and Share the wealth of experiences! We look forward to your time at Maple Crest.
Circle E Ranch - Belvidere, Tn
On June 5th we (Joyce, Terry, Jay, Meggan and Charlie) joined with many others for the Fiona Rose Murphy Foundation Charity Ride at the Circle E Ranch in Belvidere, Tn. This event was planned 1½ years ago by Gary Holt (www.EquestrianLegacy.com) and Joyce Moyer. Its fruition achieved a $25,200 donation to the foundation for the support of those diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta – Brittle Bone disease.
After climbing a 11% incline, we were happy to see the welcoming ranch gates offering camp spots, stalls, and a mess hall. The Circle E entertainment started Friday night with a concert by Ryan Murphy (Fiona’s father) playing his own songs in honor of his daughter’s strengths and approach to living. Karaoke was offered with our own Jay Keefe being a singing and gyrating star. We were all surprised by his display of hidden talents.
Saturday night’s concerts were held by Templeton Thomas and husband, Sam, followed by Michael Martin Murphy—songwriter, musician, and grandfather to Fiona Rose. (Anyone remember “Wildfire”?) Sunday was Cowboy Church. In between all this action was trail riding in the mountains, the many vendors’ shopping offerings, carriage rides, and just plain visiting among new and old friends.
Are you ready for some trail riding? Start out
the Memorial Day celebration with a double-point BWHA/MOWHA ride at
Mohican Park on Monday, May 26th. We’ll ride at 10:30 a.m. and then
enjoy each other’s company afterwards with a potluck before heading
home. Contact Joyce or Terry if you want to join them.
We will be leaving on Wednesday, June 4th to go attend the TWHBEA National Trail Ride at Belvidere, Tennessee, coming back on Sunday, June 8th. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are joining us for this weekend of riding and camaraderie.
Don’t forget the Erie County 4-H Horse Advisors open speed shows for the summer. These shows will be held at the Erie County Fairgrounds. These shows are great practice shows and entry fees are only $5.00-$10.00 depending upon the class entered.
