Chester County, PA’s Source for Exceptional Equestrian Services
Our bank barn has a tack room, feed room, horse stables, and concrete floors with matted stalls. As for the outdoor area, it includes three fenced paddocks. It also has two large pastures that collectively span 35 acres and feature a creek running along the length of the property.
The equestrian center has two outdoor rings measuring 190 feet x 90 feet and 190 feet x 65 feet. It also has access to horseback riding trails. Rest assured your horses aren’t bound to a paddock and can run free on the many acres of rolling pasture dotted with trees.
Our pastures remain lush and vibrant during the summer, so your horses enjoy the outdoors while always having access to fresh, clean water. We’ve also partnered with Brandywine Conservancy to maintain the integrity of our grounds.
Please note that the grain included in our full and field boarding services measures up to 6 quarts per day. It also contains your choice of various feeds, although extra grain quantities are available for an additional fee. In addition, we use Timothy Hay® and Orchard Grass®. Up to 20 pounds of hay are fed to our animals per day (usually during the winter months).
