About Us

Thurston County's Premier Horse Boarding and Events Center

Flying M Stables was built in the early 90's by Roger Musgrove as a playground for the Thurston County Posse and soon grew into a place for the entire equestrian community to come together.  Purchased in September of 2018 by Sarah and Stratford Mills along with her parents, Doug and Cathy Swanberg, we are working to return this facility to its former glory as an equine community favorite.  Home to one of the largest covered arenas in Thurston county, we play host to a wide range of equestrian events from Cattle events to Drill team practices to gaming and performance shows as well as mountain trail course play days.  Whether you're looking for that unique home to board your equine or looking to get out and participate in some fun events such as gaming we're what you're looking for.  We also rent our arena for private events so please contact us if you are looking for space for your event!
