Flying Q was started in 2000 by Susan Sullivan as a small horse trainging business. Susan traveled to train horses for herself and others while finishing her Bachalor of Science and Master of Science degrees at the University of Arkansas.
2004 Susan moved to Lake Sequoyah Dr. and added boarding services for a small number of clients.
In 2007 Flying Q began offering horseback riding lessons for children and adults.
After many requests for trail rides, we began offering guided trail rides in the summer 2012 with only 2 horses for clients to ride. We soon realized there is a real need in the area for the services we could provide and after just a few months we had several horses suitable for clients to ride. We currently have between 6 to 10 horses available for the public.
2013, we moved to our new location on Lake Sequoyah Spur. The new location offers more space and is next to the trailheads.
2014 was a great summer of trail riding, lessons and training!
We also got a great start on the arena areas.
2015 we added a covered area for shade for the horses and lesson. This also gives us a dry place to train horses when it's muddy out.
2016 plans are to develop the shade into a covered arena and move day to day activity from the temporary arena to a more central location on the land.
