About 140 acres on the Ranch, about
5000 acres next door at the Manassas National Battlefield Park and many, many
miles of connecting trails through Bull Run Regional Park into the network of
trail systems along the Occoquan watershed.
We have over
a mile of 3 board oak fencing. The
perimeter is tree or forest lines and 3-strand barbed wire is in place. All interior
fencing is of the 3 board oak variety.
Next to the barns we
have 3 board oak holding pens each measuring about 40' x 60' one of
which is partitioned into a smaller pen. For the most part, these pens are
used to hold the horses for a client coming out that morning or
that evening after feeding. They are also used to hold horses for
the farrier or the vet and used for lame horses that don't want
to be in a stall but needs to be confined to heal.
In the Arena Field
This contains a 100' x
200' ring with various jump standards, barrels, cavaletti, extra poles
and is lit like a football field at night. It is made of 3 board oak fencing
and has a clay base with a sand surface over the clay. It is an outdoor
ring but the surface has proven to be a virtual all weather surface.
We do not have an indoor ring.
the Arena Field is a 50' diameter round pen with solid oak boarding (except the
gate entrance) up to 6'. This essential
training area has a bluestone surface.
Arena Field Course
The Arena Field is enclosed by a 3 board
oak fence and has a field
course with various cross country type jumps as well as a coup whose course
winds around the ring and the round pen.
Field Course Through Pastures
We have a
field course that winds through our lower pastures consisting of several coops
and other field type jumps. We plan to
add a field course to the upper field and connect the two.
and saddle racks are located throughout each barn.
They are well lit and you have easy access from the parking lot
to the barns, holding pens and the arena field with the ring and round
pen. For more info see BOARDING.
For a farrier to do
a good job farriers need a flat surface and a containment area. We
have a 10' x 15' concrete pad surrounded on
3 sides by 2 board oak fence with cross ties. Unfortunately for the farriers,
it is not covered. If it rains farriers usually shoe in one of the
large bay doors of one of the barns.
identically to the farrier stand with the addition of a hose.
It is an outdoor washstand but sheltered by
virtue of being between one of the barns and the bedding storage building.
We currently have 3 tack rooms.
One is part of one of the barns and can accommodate approximately
60 saddles and associated tack. The
second is a free standing building that is used for Kim's tack. The third is a much
larger free standing building that is used by by both boarders and leasees.
The extra space in the center of the third building has a large table and a set of chairs
which provides our clients with a place to socialize.
We have three other 2-stall barns that we use for brood mares
during foaling season and isolation for new horses.
Each has between 1 and 2 acres of pasture.
We have about 110 acres of pasture and the rest is made up
of woodland shelter and the facilities outlined above.
We have a cement parking lot with space for trailer
parking. There is a fee for trailer
