Learn About Oak Arbor

We are your hosts, Judy and Steve Christie. When we first saw this property over 25 years ago, we had the vision to share the beauty of it with others. Oak Arbor in Kennard, Texas, provides overnight accommodations for horses and their owners, training areas, a central cafe for groups, and rental space for weddings, reunions, and other special occasions. You can even ride into the forest right out of the back gate, and the trailhead at Davy Crockett National Forest is only a short drive away. We look forward to meeting guests who share our love of horses and those who simply spend some quality time in the country.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
