    Default fancy barns

    hey, there's not really a point to this, but what are some of the fanciest barns you have been in or seen? I know of hilltop, and I really like the new barn at gale fervers, then windsor is nice. How about you guys? I just love to look at the barns!

    The stallion barn at Lanes End in Lexington was nicer than my house. by a long shot. Le sigh....

    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Oldencraig Equestrian Centre in Lingfield, Surrey - more of a resort for horses than a barn.

    Silver Creek's barn is gorgeous.

    There's a barn whose owners are involved in a pretty major legal thing, but I'll leave that alone. The barn is unreal though. The ceiling looks like the inside of a church, or sort of like the inner structures of a big wooden boat, and the ceiling in the indoor matches.

    Check out this page and let the slideshow play. http://www.mastersonfarms.com/ Wow on #5.

    This is my barn.

    The horse is better looked after than the husband.

    I love to visit those fancy barns but I always wonder who cleans them? cobwebs those lofty ceilings? Cleans the celestial windows? Always practical! LOL!

    One of the nicest barns I ever saw was the Longview Farms show barn. Sadly, it is gone now - turned into an elementary school. But it was just fabulous - lovely stalls, chandeliers, Tiffany clock and lamp in the indoor arena, stunning indoor arena...

    A Peruvian Paso breeder's farm outside of Dallas. Their mare/foal pasture butted up to the back yard, and they had a retaining wall instaed of fence, so when you looked out, you saw the mares happily grazing with their babies without a fence.

    Scion Farms in Croton Ohio is GORGEOUS! I ride there and we are so spoiled! Go to pamelagrahamshowstables.com and look at the facilities page. pictured dont do it justice! The whole facility is heated, stalls too! MILES of trails, 2 indoors, 2 outdoors, hot walker, covered round pen, millions of paddocks/fields. just so lovely! Main indoor is 3 stories tall!!

    Holy cow, make room for me I'm moving in! Plus I love the pic of GM and my trainer Jenny on that webpage. Who knew she owned a Joules polo?

    Default Haven't seen it myself, but...

    PROVIDENCE HILL FARM, in Jackson MS is supposed to be an $8 mil barn. I was told when you're there and need to heat up your lunch in the break room it's done with BOSCH appliances.

    Ashford Stud and WInstar Farm in KY are gorgeous

    I have also been in a provate facility of one of the people on the billionairs list as they bought a pony of ours. It was second to none and one of the must drop dead gorgeous facilities i have ever been into...and it was only for recreation when they felt like riding. Believe me, you have never seen an indoor like the one at this place or stalls or any of it, until youve been in this barn. Its better than most plypic facilities!

    Lionshare, Peter Leones' place here in CT is quite the farm too. Its like a park when you go into it and its truly breathtaking
