Love what you do, thanks for helping me find my perfect riding companion. I couldn't be happier! Drifter is amazing and his jumping progress is coming along smoothly and perfectly! Thank you!

Sophia and I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful time we had at your farm. It was awesome we both had a great time working our horses through some tough spots, It gave all of us great confidence. Silver like the ball the best, Sophia loved the big tires. We are in if you have another fun day! Thank you again!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that Tucker has settled in wonderfully. I took him to an organized charity ride out of state just two days after I got him and could not have been more pleased with his behavior and performance. He gets along so well with all the other horses he meets and has no problems being first, last, or in the middle of the group on a trail ride. That's a pleasurable and new experience for me! The two of us are already logging valuable hours not only on various trails but in the ring as well. Tucker is game no matter what I ask of him or where I take him.

Well folks I did it. Never thought I could. Did'nt even think it was possible. But, if it can happen to me than it can happen to you to ! I have always dreamed of having the "perfect horse" . I wanted the "Cinderella Story" and the handsome Prince that came with the dream. After looking time and time again and still finding myself on the ground watching the beautiful tails on the "BACK" of those beautiful "PERFECT" horses running off across the field, I was just about to give up. Well, I was on a mission and just couldn't quit yet.

We've really enjoyed Baron and Domino! My nieces love their new rides! We've ridden the trails @ Fairystone, VA and plan to ride Mt. Rogers over July 4th. The horses are doing great! Thank you & keep up the good work!

Hi Leisa! Thank you, thank you, thank you for selling me Dixie. Could not ask for a better horse, she is everything you said she would be and more. Although I've only had her a few weeks, I already know she is a permanent member of our family. It was so nice meeting you, hopefully we will see you soon in uwharrie! Happy Trails, Kelly Waters and Dixie

Buying a horse from Leisa was an absolutely positive and wonderful experience. It's so nice to work with honest, personable and communicative professionals who go above and beyond expectations. Even after the sale was complete she continued to work with Geronimo to prepare him for our daughter, while we prepared our home for him. He is now at a professional training center (more for us than him) and everyone who has met him has commented about his remarkably pleasing and agreeable nature. Clearly a result of skilled and loving training. A great horse from a great trainer.

Leisa, I just wanted to say, thank you so much for the time u spent putting a great foundation on River. For being only 2 yrs old, he is turning out to be a very well behaved and smart horse. He is doing great. I am looking forward to sending him back to you next year, after spring, for a refresher. I can't thank you enough, Leisa. Happy hollidays from my family to yours. We hope u stay safe and warm through the winter. Thank you again, Leisa.

Leisa, We just wanted to say Thank you for all you done to make sure that we got that special new "family member" that was right for us. It is nice to know that some people still go that extra mile and you can count on what they say. We will be making another purchase from you soon! I am thankful for people like you that just don't try to "sale horses" but place then in special forever homes that are a partnership for life.

Leisa said: November 26th, 2012 9:47 pm

Caitlin, You are very welcome, and we know Kix has a great home. We have many customer and friends who like to load up and go somewhere for just a day ride. I am sure they would love to come see you all at Gambill Farms. Anyone wanting to book a place for an event or a wedding, I will send them your way. You guys have a wonderful start to a beautiful place over there in Roaring River. Good luck with everything.

Eric Gambill said: November 9th, 2012 2:27 am

Thank you for our wonderful mare- Kix, Leisa & Chris! She is such a well trained and calm horse for only being 3 years old. We couldn't have asked for a better horse to add to our herd. She was just what we were searching for, and it couldn't have been a better ending to a horse shopping day! We look forward to purchasing more well trained horses from you in the future. Take care! Sincerely, Eric & Caitlin... and of course Kix.

We are now living in Arizona, for as much moving around she has done in less then a 6 month time she adjusts great, from your home, to mine on the Carolina Coast now across the country to the sonoran desert. She's adapted beautifully, you truly do an awesome job with these horses, I can tell with how well rounded she is. Everyone here loves her, she stands her ground and is still a love bug

Pete's doing great! He has settled right in and every one at our barn loves him. He is all you said he would be. Thank you!

Just wanted to let you know I took China to the beach yesterday for the first time, she was great, she was calm, and we even got her front hooves into the ocean. She's a dream...she puts up with whatever test I put her thru with a willing and curious attitude, I am lucky to have such a great mare. 

Gloria said: April 17th, 2012 6:38 pm

Hey Leisa, we got home safe and sound Sunday with Dakota. I went on a little trail ride yesterday afternoon and he did great. He is really fun to ride,just ansey enough to be a lota fun. Thanks for everything.... Gloria

We had bought sadie mae from you for my husband and really liked the way she was trained. Decided to send my 8 year old mare to you for extra training to get her to where she should be, and I am so glad I did. She is doing awesome! Neck reins, side passes, follows instead of leading me, and so much more. I am very happy and would recommend you to anyone. Great work! Thanks so much, kim

Hello Chris, your website is great, Rick & I appreciate that you & Leisa promote the Noavel Headstall, so well. Happy Trails, Penny & Rick Wheat

Katey said: February 14th, 2012 2:27 am

China has been quite the attraction at the barn, everyone wants to check out the new girl who loves to be loved on. Everyone loves her personality...she's been great on the trail and is learning she's got to walk a bit slower so her new trail buddy Target can keep up. She's such a love! Hopefully ya'll can come down to the coast to ride sometime. :) Katey

kim said: November 21st, 2011 5:18 am

Hi, wes rode sadie on their first trail ride since we got her, she was great! They have bonded already, she is his girl. What a sweet heart, am excited about you getting babe and working her and the possibilities for her. Thanks for a great horse. kim

MAN I could scream! Been looking for a Thoroughbred mare 12 to 14 yrs old with Secretary bloodlines. Can't believe you had her. You are NO where near me. I live in Woodstock GA. but would have probably bought her sight unseen. PLEASE let me know if you ever get another one like her. O. Culp, Woodstock, Georgia

Hi Leisa: Cherokee has settled in well and is doing great, we had a really good ride this weekend and in a very noisy crowded environment and he is exactly as described, I really enjoyed riding him... Thanks!!!

Bob Hester said: October 29th, 2011 4:24 pm

Leisa, Rode Secret about 2 hours yesterday after she was delivered. She did absolutely great. Even Cheyanne was calmer than usual even in the cold, wind and rain. They did great overnight with no problems. Your horses are exactly what you say. Thanks again.

My Story about "Bud", the beautiful bay on the rock! He is the best thing that ever happened to me. Great personality and I am so greatful it turned out I got him.... delivered, site unseen and couldn't ever found a nicer, well trained horse! Ridden all my life and as a retired horse shoer, wish I had found Bud long ago! Great Job Leisa!

Gary Berger said: September 23rd, 2011 3:31 am

Hi Lesia, THANK YOU for Cody!!!! For my first horse he is so gentle and is getting along fine at his new home. Had some issues with the mares as they didn't like the little fella. But we got it all straightened out. Your training is wonderful and everyone at the barn is commenting on him!

Halie kinley said: September 11th, 2011 8:32 pm

Susan Carroll said: September 6th, 2011 5:56 pm

Labor Day much great riding! I rode Rocky, a 3yr old stud colt and River the 4yr old red roan. Please understand, I'm an "ex" experienced rider, haven't ridden in a few years and those two horses were just wonderful. Calm throughout the day, went anywhere I asked and did whatever I asked of them. I recommend everyone to buy a horse from Hanging Hat Stables!

Mike Branch said: September 1st, 2011 12:15 am

Great site. Appreciate what you do and how you care about the horses. Want to come by and check them out.

Gary Berger said: August 20th, 2011 8:52 pm

Great web site. I put in a call about Cody today, can't wait to talk about him.

Thelma Shaw said: August 16th, 2011 3:33 am

Thank You Lesia for my Beautiful horse Bud! He is so much more than I had even expected and couldn't be more impressed. Bud is the new love of my life! Great Horse are made from their handlers!

Good Looking Web & Horses. I love to see good, sound Old West type horses and training! Been looking for a bay trail horse and Bud is a prospect. How long has he been for sale? 

Mishca Randall said: July 17th, 2011 4:10 am

Hey Leisa: Checked em all out - we are planning our route for trip now - we are kind of fly by the seat of our pants travelers - so havent exactly decided what day we are leaving but I will get in touch with you and let you know make sure it fits your schedule. Do you by any chance train other peoples horses - side passing, backing?

Susan Carroll said: July 13th, 2011 12:29 am

Hi y'all! Great websie. Beautiful horses. They all look so content in their surroundings. Still trying to figure out which one I should get!!! How much for Snickers?? No price on her. Love to all!
