Time to start planning for Aiken 2020!

Our new Aiken facility is top notch with a large all-weather ring and a cross-country schooling field. Not to mention, we’re only minutes from Sporting Days Farm, Full Gallop Farm, Jumping Branch Farm, Paradise Farm and The Vista Schooling and Event Center. In addition to accepting students and horses in training, we will also have one room for rent, as well as camper hookups available.

We routinely have students from all over the country come and stay with us for the winter, and we always enjoy helping them get a jump start on their season. Two of our Winter 2019 students, Kathleen Bertuna and Barbara Lightner, just enjoyed successful outings at the AECs in Kentucky.

So start thinking and start planning! Contact Courtney at [email protected] or (610) 932 - 5832 or here on Facebook to discuss your Winter 2020 plans today!

Please be advised: The Vista is watching hurricane Dorian closely. High winds will cause us to close due to jumps and stakes catching wind. The vista will need to layover jumps to prevent them from breaking. We will update you as the storm takes it course.

Evacuees: We still have stalls and paddocks available if anyone is in need. Please call 704-770-6628
