Why do we work so hard and spend so much time, energy and money at the barn? The horses make us smile! Just ask Zoe Lampert, pictured here finishing her first ever Pony Finals competition in Lexington, KY, 2012.
Ashwood Farm, Est. 2001 Ashwood Farm was started in May 2001 by Mary Ann Funk. Formerly a lush 40 acre tract of brome grass, the Ashwood facility now supports horses and ponies who compete across the country at AA rated USEF Hunter/Jumper horse shows as well as regional USEF and local KHJA horse shows. Designed as a teaching, training and sales facility for hunters, jumpers, and equitation, Ashwood provides an atmospere which promotes learning horsemanship, riding and life lessons. Our professional staff provides horse care and training second to none. A large outdoor riding arena surfaced with all weather footing creates a place for steady training. The gently rolling turf field allows for advanced conditioning and training of our horse and human athletes. The care we take in every detail demonstrates our commitment to excellence in horsemanship and giving the people and horses at Ashwood the very best environment possible.

Our purpose Ashwood Farm is a lifelong dream fulfilled. We want to share this blessing with others who can also benefit from it. Horsemanship requires caring, discipline and responsibility. We provide an environment which encourages personal growth in child and adult students alike. Horses and a program like Ashwood, dedicated to teaching old fashioned excellence in horsemanship, challenge people to excel. Our purpose is to encourage development in equestrian sports, growth in ourselves and our students and to improve the lot of our horses as we do it.
Enjoying the process together, students at Ashwood learn horsemanship and life lessons
To become a true horseman, you must emerse yourself in horses and love the horse with all of your heart. ALL CONTENT COPYRIGHT ASHWOOD FARM, LLC 2015
