A cabin will be available for clients for short or long-term stays, as well as a seminar room for educational presentations.

With all of these amenities, Stafford will be able to continue all of her current services such as lessons, clinics, young horse training, show preparation, breed show driving, combined driving competition and keuring/IBOP prep, as well as expand in exciting new directions in the near future.

“I am so excited to be able to design the facility based entirely on the horses’ comfort and client needs,” noted Stafford. “We are currently wrapping up construction and can’t wait to welcome clients and fellow driving enthusiasts to the farm, as well as be able to schedule some clinics and schooling events for next year.”
