She is best known for her ponies (#1/#2 in nation) but also does horses. She is amazing!

Not sure if this is 'south' enough for you, but Gary Kunsman and A.J. Garrity at Four Seasons Farm in Flemington, NJ are excellent.

Very nice, too. :)

How does AJ do with babies???

There are a couple of babies at Four Seasons, both ones bred and owned by AJ and belonging to customers, and they are all doing great.

I have never seen Gary, AJ or any of the grooms get rough or impatient with a horse, EVER. There is a total absence of confrontation in horse handling there.

The horses are all well-mannered, happy, relaxed individuals.

IMO it would be a great place for a baby to grow up.

One of the babies I think is turned out 24/7 with a shed because she does not like being stalled. Still, AJ was hand-grazing her the other day (awww).

Generally in the summer the horses go out all night and are in during the day; in the winter they are out during the day as much as temperature/ice conditions allow.

They can go out in groups or individually.

There have been a couple threads on trainers in NJ; try the search option. But I do recommend Gary and AJ. My barn schools at their indoor a lot, and their horses always look in great health and happy and the clients seem very happy. Love AJ's mare Good Reason too. ;)

Desfor Farms in Chester Springs. They've had some bad press in the past due to drama-rich people but they're gone now and the place looks and runs great. Turn-out is anything to a few hours or all day or all night depending on the season and your horse. Very tuned into individual needs. Has been under new management the past year I think and it's really turned around and everyone there is super nice. No yelling, no pressure. Horses look great. Check it out for yourself before casting judgement and that goes for other barns too! Good luck!

The Chester County Boarding theads have been beat to death on here. If you really want to know about one, do a search and read everything that comes up. CC is a small horse community, gossip is king (just to warm you). Good luck!
