A sanctuary for horse & rider
Since January 2008, Ridgemor Farm has been a refuge for equestrians seeking a picturesque, tranquil environment in which to enjoy their horses. Expansive pastures with safe fencing and ample shelter facilitate a holistic equine existence, with two levels of pasture board care available. Stall board is available on a limited basis. The upper barn features grooming stations, a wash stall with hot and cold water, and a secure tack room. A spacious 150×300 foot arena offers all-weather footing and a wide array of jumps, while rolling hills and quiet trails invite riders to roam beyond the gate.
