Training / Schooling / Lessons

“Certainly, we need great movers and powerful jumpers, but above all we need a partner, not a slave. We need horses who are supremely courageous, fiercely independent and phenomenally agile.  Find such a horse and treasure him.  Teach him that you will trust him with your life.  Give him the education he will need, and then sit quietly while he does the job you have very skillfully and very patiently taught him. He won’t let you down. We owe all this and more to our horses.”  Jim Wofford

What's New

Farm Renovations and Upgrades continue! 

 

2021 has seen further major changes, improvements and upgrades. The front field is now a dedicated cross country schooling venue, with new water complex, new ditch complex, and many new obstacles added.  We are in the final stages of creating the "Moore Stadium", an additional outdoor arena. Our dressage school has been expanded, and we are adding a new judge booth soon. We have added a new visitor / competitor trailer parking lot right off Walter Road. Easy access year-round! The old kennel is now a spacious 2-bay wash/farrier/vet/groom area complete with hot and cold water.  A new sprinkler system is on our front "hunter" ring -- dust free bliss!!  Our main barn wash stall has already undergone a major face lift  -- dazzling!  Take a moment to sit and relax  in our paved "zen" garden stable yard with fountain (ahhhh).  Other improvements include new improved speaker system and bluetooth hook up for the music system in the indoor arena, new electronic timers for our shows, mats in the main barn aisle, and updated stables.  The barn interior is being redone as well, with new racks, cabinetry, soon-to-come individual cubbie storage for clients. Further improvements and upgrades will continue!!
