Welcome

This website contains a history of one woman’s childhood dream to own and run a horse farm.  I achieved that dream, lived and loved the life. After about 5 years it was time for me to chase another dream, one of being closer to family and a full time aunt (instead of just once a year).  I sold the farm, packed it all up and moved to California.

I could not stay away from the horse life for long.  I started trial riding, then took up lessons.  Next thing I knew I was back to teaching lessons part time.  It’s in the blood I can’t help it.

What is a golden spike you ask?

A “golden spike” was the last, ceremonial spike driven specifically to mark the completion of a railroad line. For us the “golden spike” symbolizes the completion of our search for the perfect home and horse farm.

    Well, this is too weird! I have a horse I basically rescued 13 years ago named Nash! And, wait for it, he had surgery in April for a bone spur in his knee. He began work as a therapy horse last year and I’m trying to get him to a year round therapy center now, and trying to raise money for his surgery, rehab and supps! Couldn’t believe there was another therapy horse named Nash who needed surgery! We have a lot in common – all of my animals were rescued from ranches, highways or rivers – just couldn’t take them to a shelter. My Nash is short for National Invitation. How did you name your Nash?

    Hi Liza, It is a small world. Therapy horses do wonders for people of all ages. I find my horses and time in the barn is my therapy. Riding helps me clear my head and mucking stalls helps me think. My Nash is named after Nashville because he is a Tennessee Walking Horse. Good luck with your fund raising. Let me know if you need any help or tips on how to raise money. Jen

    I am looking for a full board barn for my horse when I move to the Philadelphia area in July. I know you are full right now, but would be interested if you have a spot open up. I have a 21 year old Arabian. Lauren Sanders, DVM
