View Full Version : XC Schooling in GA, NORTH of I20?
Apr. 27, 2010, 01:29 PM
Anyone know of any place with XC schooling (as low as Aomebia or Tadpole) NORTH of I-20?
I know of the usual places, Big Bear, Poplar, Pine Top, etc.
We are looking for a place we can go and jump around some SMALL jumps...
I thought there was a place in Chattsworth, GA, but cant find anything. i have checked out the USEA website and just found the usual suspects...any others that may be private farms that allow you to school?

I know of Buckhead HT at Chelford Farm. Haven't been in a few years, so I'd call to see if they are still there...

Foxberry Farm (http://foxberryfarms.com/)
UCF Stables (http://www.ucfstables.com/home.cfm)
as always, call to schedule, as these are private facilities that allow limited schooling.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

UCF is kind of between Woodstock, Canton and Holly Springs...
Email Kim or Kristy for more info though. They are fabulous ladies. Its a great little schooling field for the green as grass levels. :)

I e-mailed them...I didnt realize they are at the old "A&M Acres".
We are looking for something with low, inviting jumps to help school for hunter paces, etc. We really dont want to take the trek to Big Bear, Pine Mountain, etc only to really not be able to jump anything because of the size of the fences.

Calimar Farm in Summerville would be wonderful. They have very nice inviting water with ramps in and out; little up/downs. Good ditches for practice even for green as grass. Nicely made embankments again good for tadpole through training level. Quite a few low logs. They have some stadium jumps so for instance you can go down the ramp into the water then out the next ramp and go a few strides and jump a stadium natural wood jump that you can put at what height you would like. Starmans are very nice people too.

I can DOUBLY vouch for Calimar...you still coming Memorial Day Becca? GiGi...Come too!

Do know Marisa...depends on how crazy things get. Planning on it.
So...for two people who are just wanting to take their horses out and jump around a few SMALL jumps and introduce water...would you go to Big Bear or Calimar?
Both are about the same distance wise...
And, is there a way to contact Calimar other than the Myspace page????

I pm'd you a phone # for Calimar. I would pick Calimar over Big Bear, nothing against Big Bear I just like Calimar better. Yes all xc place require vests as far as I know.

Becca, I've got a vest lined up for you at Calimar :) Marty's daughter is a friend of mine, and she has a brand new vest that will fit ya and would love to lend it to you to school there! And their water is super inviting. You can either just walk in/out a ramp, to TINY bank in or out all the way up to a training drop/log into the water. Love it. Super well maintained too.
