Forest View Farms, LLC
 
FVF is located on approximately 15 acres in Harford County, MD off of High Point Road.  We offer a large indoor arena with sand and rubber footing, a large outdoor arena with sand and stone dust footing, all board fencing, matted 12x12 stalls, a heated tack room with utility sink, small fridge, microwave and coffee pot, a hot and cold water wash stall, low carbohydrate grains individualized to each horses dietary needs,  quality hay fed year round, and paired or group turn out.  Horses are kept on a 12-12 schedule left in during the hottest parts of the day in the summer, and brought in during the coldest hours of the night in the winter; fans and heated water buckets may be supplied by the owner for no additional monthly fees.  Blankets are changed according to temperatures, fly masks/sheets are put on and fly spry is applied to each horse as necessary.  We regularly have our manure pile removed and groom our arenas to maintain the footing.  We have a full course + of colorful jumps available for use, as well as lunging equipment, cavaletti's, barrels, dressage cones and more.  Salt blocks are available and outdoor troughs are heated during the winter months.  Our farrier visits the barn every 6-7 weeks for regular trimmings and shoeings, along with regular vists from the dentist and farm vet to ensure all horses are at their healthiest.  To see the farm yourself and inquire about training, boarding or lesson availability please contact us.
