Our barn sits on 13 acres, but the way it's laid out, it seems bigger. The BO's house is in the front and you pull into their driveway and that's where the barn is. A little before the house are the paddocks where the horses are kept. There are 3 paddocks, a walkway, and then the 4th paddock. The walkway connects the main area to the back area.

The main area is where we park and then there's a small riding arena/grooming/tack-up just in front of the main barn. There are about 9 stalls inside with 3 stalls on one side outside and 4 stalls on the other outside part of the barn. There are 2 tack rooms and there are 2 small pens, one each side of the small arena, to keep a horse that's new to the barn. Next to one of the pens, sits a HUGE tree and underneath, we have a picnic table and drink cooler. During the summer, that tree offers not only a lot of shade, but the best breeze possible. There's also a little outdoor furnace, that burns with wood, so we can keep warm in the colder weather. This is the place where we all get together to relax and hang out.

Behind the barn is a wooded area where the cows for team penning are kept. To the left of the small arena (when facing the barn) is the big arena (it's BIG), which has the ability to open into an alleyway for when we host Showdeo (barrel racing, pole bending, etc.) There's a smaller holding area in the back of the arena for keeping the cows during team penning/ranch sorting. On the long side of the arena, where the pen is, there's a huge grass area where you can ride. It's also used for parking when we host events. There are bleachers all over for spectators to watch, along with picnic tables to eat at.

On the other side of that walk-way, there's a smaller barn that holds about 5 horses (I think, haven't been down there in awhile) and the lounge. Behind that, there's a 2nd pen to keep the cows in and a trail that connects that area to the main cow pen. In the middle of that mini-trail, there's a round pen that's covered by the shade of the trees, which really helps when you're doing training in the summer. Just a little past that 2nd cow pen, there's a gate that leaves you right across the street from the main trails.

I have only been riding at this barn for about 2 months but I am in love with it!

It is 35 acres of meadows and trees with 2 barns. The first barn is an old stone bank barn that the owners remodeled. It has dutch style stalls with fancy iron bars and cobblestone flooring. The second barn is a brand new 3 month old stable made entirely out of a dark oak wood. A new indoor arena attaches to it, im not sure the measurments but it is sooo big! There is also 2 extra outdoor arenas.
The stalls in both barns are enormous and everything is so clean. The whole barn is set on 35 acres but only 11 acres are actually used for pastures and barns. The remaining land is left for trail rides and cross country use.
Board at this barn is a little costly but the lesson pricing is really good...take it from me...im 16 and I pay for my own lessons! Although it seems like this barn would be overrun by people day to day but not many people go there.
The barn closed to the public a couple weeks after it opened because too many people tried to ride there. They only took about 15 riders and 10 boarders. Every time I get there it is just me and my instructor and no one else.
I am an intermediate rider but I have ridden about 8 different horses there already with no problem. The best part about this barn is that there isnt any barn drama or snobby riders that think they're all that cause they have 5 horses...its just you and your horse <3

Currently, my horses are at LaGrange Farm and Tack in Virginia and it's on almost 100 acres. There are close to 50 stalls and over 60-some horses there. There are two large barns, a round pen, 6 turnout paddocks, two riding rings, and an indoor arena. There is also a lounge, wooded trails and a giant pasture with a stream running through it. I actually took my senior pictures for high school there along with my horse, they turned out beautiful! Due to the fact that the owner likes to take advantage of my mom and I we are moving them to my house where I have 3-4 acres for them to graze with two fenced in areas for grazing and riding. We'll be building a 3 or 4-stall barn and a run-in shed for them in the paddocks. I can't wait until it's all finished!

Then we have 2 exercise tracks, show jumps and a cross country course. Not to mention dams on the property and a kid friendly lesson days.

My stable is AWESOME.[/i]
