Don't forget... a few spots open for boarders!

Good morning!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed it with friends and family. On this chilly Monday morning, we wanted to remind everyone that there are still a few board openings at Southwind for the winter! Our experienced staff all live on the property and help maintain a routine that keeps our horses happy and healthy.  Not only do we have the facilities you need to train your competition horse, there are also miles of trails for conditioning and pleasure.  All types of riding are welcome, as are your own blacksmith and veterinarian.  We have always emphasized a relaxed atmosphere that is essential to every horse’s well-being regardless of discipline.  Our location in Damascus, Montgomery County, MD provides easy access to I-270 and I-70.
PS- did we mention that we have an indoor arena!?!? 

Be sure to check us out and contact owner Sheri Thornley today to set up your appointment!

Happy Thanksgiving from Southwind Farm!

Good morning everyone, 

Not much going on this week with the upcoming holiday so we wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of our wonderful clients, boarders and 4-legged friends! We hope that you have a nice holiday and are able to enjoy it. 

We know that Spike is looking forward to any Thanksgiving scraps he may find...

Calling all geldings!!

Good morning!

We hope that everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Did you know, that here at Southwind we accept all types of horses and disciplines into our farm family? However, (even though we love our mares) we are currently looking for a few geldings to add to the herd! If you have a gelding and are looking for a place to board with an indoor this winter, come check us out!
We also allow boarders to bring in their own farrier and veterinarian as well! We are a place to board where everyone is welcomed, so be sure to visit our website for more info:

Southwind mascot, Spike, says "We need some more guys to join me around here!"

We can't forget the Waredaca results!

Good morning,

With the fall competition season coming to a close, we forgot to mention the results from the Waredaca Fall Starter two weekends ago! Sheri took her baby horse, Biricchino aka "B," to compete in the Beginner Novice Horse-A division and finished in 4th place!! He is really catching on to the eventing world and learning how fun it is!

Boarder Lauren Carey also competed her horse, Jackalack, for their 2nd event ever in the Beginner Novice Rider-B division and WON! Lauren may be new to the eventing world, but based on how well she has done these past two events, we think she may be hooked!
Lauren & Jackalack looking great!

Lisa Austin was right behind her in the same division finishing with a tie for 2nd place with her horse, Lookndownthebarrel. Great job!

We also just have to share this incredible photo of Sheri's horse, Toga, taken by the very talented
Pamela Heemskerk-Hefley! What a great group of people we have at Southwind!
