What I like:
The People first and foremost. Trainers that are wonderful. GREAT group, whether its adult, teen, child, they are all a big \'family\'. The horses are always fat and happy. Regular vet and farrier visits.
Beautiful high end part of town.
Shows in just about all circuits as well as clinics at the barn.
What needs improvement:
Its an OLD facility, no one can change that. Unless you want your board to increase by hundreds of dollars. It has many paddocks. HUGE well bedded stalls. A very large indoor ring (long but narrow).
For what they have to work with, its a great barn.

What I like:
Location is great
Arena is large
Program seems to run well
What needs improvement:
Horses are ridden/shown lame

Fences need work, possibly dangerous in spots, footing in jumping arena washes out

Hyper horses magically turn into quiet animals over night (wink)

What I like:
My horse, my trainer, the pasture, the stalls some of the students :)
What needs improvement:
IMprovments would be better paddock quality, but thats a hard thing to fix when you use them daily. MORE turnout during the day.
Other than that I am very happy with the farm. I wouldnt have my horse there if I didnt think he was well taken care of by the staff.

What I like:
The girls who ride there.
What needs improvement:
The trainer needs to quit Acing the horses before shows and he needs to be kinder to the animals under his care. Too many of them end up lame. There is more to the H/J world than the competition- the horses should come before the awards and ribbons!
