Hardwood Creek | Lyle & Colleen Wick

The Hardwood Creek facility is a full-service training, showing and lesson operation which specializes in the Morgan and American Saddlebred breeds. The Wicks both earned B.S. degrees from the University of Minnesota, where Lyle was head of Equine Science at the U of M, Crookston for ten years. Meanwhile, Colleen taught continuing education in addition to giving riding lessons. Together the Wicks have trained horses professionally since 1983.
Hardwood Creek is nestled on 30 acres of lush pasture. The facility includes a heated barn, spacious tack room and plenty of storage. Customers and visitors enjoy the observation areas for the indoor arena.

Hardwood Creek maintains an impressive lesson program and clients who have successfully shown with numerous wins at the local, national and world levels. A few of their recent champions include HyLee’s Bella Donna, HyLee’s Goldsmith, NKS Mocha Latte, Kriskroft Keynote, Callaway’s Full of Spirit (ASB), HyLee’s Seven Roses, Tara’s Brind’Amour, Aerie Meadow Intense, Crown Cadillac, Cosmo’s Double Oh Seven, SMC Skywalker, Aerie Meadow Galileo, MSV Hi Time and HyLee’s Dannation. Their finest accomplishment to date may be their very talented daughter Alyssa, who is a sought-after catch-rider and is an integral part of the Hardwood Creek training program.
