August Update

There is a lot happening at Ballyclare these days! We would like to welcome on Christopher Webb as a new rider to join our team. Christopher grew up in Alabama riding many different types of horses including barrel racers, saddlebreds, paint horses, and jumpers. He has spent the last year in Middleburg, Va riding hunters, jumpers, and event horses and working as a working student for Stephen Bradley. We are lucky and excited to have him as our ever-growing thoroughbred program continues to thrive.
As always we are working on improving our facility and are in the process of expanding and adding footing to our outdoor ring. We have a couple spots open for reduced board in exchange for help feeding, and also have a spot open for a working student. Please inquire for details.




Congrats New Owners

Ballyclare would like to congratulate all of our new owners!! Dana Sherman and her 14 year old oldenburg mare 'State Of Grace', Meghann Taibl and 'Rose Of Fame' an 11 year old oldenburg, Emily Boynton and her new mare 'Pokey Hontas' or Bella, Donna Matthews and her new boy 'Precious Memories' known to us as Phantom, an 09 thoroughbred gelding, and finally to Kristen Cyron and her ever-growing herd!!

We are also excited to announce that we are in for a very busy spring. We now have 7 mares confirmed in-foal for 2013 babies!

Thank you to all of our clients for your continued patience while we improve our facility. We now have more new footing, new fencing, plumbing, electrical work, and a new driveway!




Another new foal for Ballyclare

Clare has had her foal! On April 13 at 6:30 AM she delivered a very healthy and friendly bay filly. With looks and personality to spare this one will be a show stopper!

Barn Collapse/New Location

Due to heavy snowfall Febuary 5, 2010, our barn roof collapsed and left us homeless. Kris Moran of Serenity Springs Equine Resort opened her doors and took in our 20 horses. We now have a new home at Sugarland Farm in Poolesville, Maryland.

Annie gets Bremmy for her 18th birthday

After all of Annie's hard work she gets the gift of a lifetime...her first horse. Annie has been leasing Bremmy for 4 years and her dedication has led the pair to countless blue ribbons and year-end standings. They are truly meant for each other and we wish them the best of luck when Annie takes her to college next year!
