Virgil and Sheila own and operate Dunham Sport Horses, a 101 acre farm located in the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County in Southwestern New York State. They are a full service show barn. Raising babies is one of the many joys that is enjoyed by everyone at the barn. They stand a wonderful thoroughbred stallion and have several of his offspring, ready to enter the show ring on a limited basis this year. They  also sell, train horses, give lessons and do camps all year around.  During inclement weather, lessons will be held in their indoor riding arena.  Parents are welcome to  enjoy the heated class room and coffee while they watch their children's  lessons.

 One of the new programs this year is the ladies night . This gives the ladies a night in the barn without children and a chance to learn and play with the horses. This spring they will expand this to a time to relax in the whirlpool and a swim in the pool after a lesson if you wish. The camp program they offer is year around. They also offer  birthday parties, breakfast rides, reunions for families. If you have something you would like to do and it involves horses give them  a call and they can help you or find someone that can.   716-938-6279

Summer Camp is a large part of the  program at Dunham Sport Horse. Summer is the best time that you can spend learning how to sharpen your riding and jumping skills.  Dunham Sport Horses  would love to be a part of your equine experience.  During the 2011 Camp season they will be attending the Southtown Series in the Buffalo, New York area.  They will also be attending the Cattaraugus County Fair in Little Valley, New York.  If you are with them for the entire  summer, they will be attending the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, New York.  Summer Camp is also going to go to the Erie Pa. Hunt Club for some horse shows.  Summer Horse Camp will strive to make you a better rider and jumper.  

They look forward to hearing from you.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
