About The Facility
This is a beautiful, properly planned facility about an hour south of Atlanta, Georgia. Settled on 52 acres, this 22 stall farm boasts an oversize roundpen, covered indoor arena with mirrors, and large outdoor jump arena with fiber footing. Constructed with an upper level Eventing operation in mind, the owner of this facility runs it as a passionate hobby, and is excited to watch it grow!
