The Past Welcomes The Present
The charm and inspiration of this equestrian community is inspired by the first resident who settled the farm in 1780. Like the community around Duchess Farm, it has seen many changes and has been continually framed for all these years. Duchess Farm now has a new life and a new beginning as a
DUCHESS FARM - "It may well become part of your family's history"
community for the horse lover. This will give the farm a "new" family and will insure that generations will enjoy the natural beauty and experience of "growing up" on a farm.

Horses perform better on Surefoot™!
Surefoot™ Equestrian Arena Footing Testimonials
"For the horses who are completely sound and pretty good movers, they move even better, freer, with more relaxation,
length of stride and suspension. For the horses who are older and a little arthritic, the difference is dramatic.
They are instantly so much more comfortable that they move significantly better."
