Hart-Woods Equestrian is a professional facility open all year round.
We don’t hibernate in summer, wake up in October, dust off the cobwebs, kick out the jams and find the stable roof is leaking the day before you arrive! We’re open for the business of taking great care of high quality clients with high quality horses all day - every day - all year round. We’re in the swing of things. So when season comes, we’re already ready.
Season is generally thought of as December 1st to March 31st. 4 calendar months. However, we know from our years owning British Feed, each client’s season is different, but on balance, it’s those 4 months. For your comfort and care, it’s better if you don’t have a revolving door process of horses coming and going week by week and month by month, so 4 months it is. That said, if you want to rent for more than that, at either end, you can, let’s talk!
You can rent the whole facility - even including the house and apartments (go to accommodation) - or just bring your own horse. And all numbers in between! Now, where are we? As Conrad Hilton said, Location, location, location. He said it thrice ‘cos it’s important. We’re at the very end of a quiet tree lined private road. 15200 and 15201 Timberlane Place, The Groves, (formerly known as Loxahatchee Groves) 33470. Google Earth it…but not too closely…our beautiful new stable has been built since they last droned over and our arena is twice the size. Plus we expanded into the 5 acres next door. Much else has also changed…..trawl this site for photos to see what’s really waiting for you. It’s peaceful and secure here. No passing traffic, no rubberneck nosy parkers and pretty much no people other than us. Even the trash guys don’t drive anywhere near the facility.
We’re also 13-14 minutes to WEF, Global and other Wellington showgrounds towing a 4 horse trailer. I know this as I do it. I timed it. Same distance to White Fences. Sadly you can’t get much bigger than a 4-6 horse down the quiet leafy lane, but you can take the horses off and walk them here; it’s around 1200 feet and a pleasant stroll! And once you’re off our the lane and out onto C Road or B Road (we have exits to both) the roads are all paved to the show grounds and it’s an easy traffic free drive.
You may have already seen the equine accommodation on other pages, but in case you missed it;
We have an lovely brand new clean stable - 9 stalls, air-conned tack room, w/c, kitchenette, fridge. We built it ourselves to our own specifications – that’s why we can say it's awesome. -The tack room, w/c and kitchen area are cleaned professionally weekly. -Double walls in all stalls, they're all fully matted and they're all crib proof capped. Fans and lights if you need them. -Two covered washstalls, one with hot water. -14’ breezeway for even the biggest tack boxes. -Two stallion stalls. -All stalls gated and secured with Ramm stall fronts and easy slide latch locks. -Breezeway and wash stalls power washed monthly. -Access directly into the main brightly lit arena from the stable. -Shaded elevated viewing deck with comfy chairs, Bluetooth hi fi, wi-fi, security lighting.
As I said; the end of a quiet, tree lined private lane, no traffic, no people. Fully fenced for 100% absolute privacy and security. If you need it, we can provide stalls for more horses.
Main arena is irrigated daily, lighted, 220’ x 120’ and comes c/w jumps if needed. Use of tractor hitched to Dragn'Fly included in full facility rental. Onsite stable help or bring your own. Lunge pen. And there’s more…..
Need a place to stay yourself?
Also available for seasonal rental; 1- 2 person apartment. (3 if you’re really friendly…) 100 feet from the stable. Aircon, fridge, own kitchen bathroom and dedicated entrance. Wake up....eat...coffee...ride.
Plus a 3-4 bedroom furnished house with modern kitchen, wi-fi and 50'' TV with surround sound. Recently decorated, cleaned and ready to live in. Also 100' from the stable!
A lovely fully furnished luxury 2 bed apartment another 350 feet from the stable.
Oh...we also have dogs, 3 Viszlas, who, although lovely, are territorial. They’re great security even though not fierce. They're totally horse savvy. They don’t bark. But they would if you had a dog! So sorry… no dogs. Cat? Ok….but at it's peril….other pets...hmm…tell us what they are first….
The place is totally secure and we have loads of room. We can arrange optional parking for up to 10 horse trailers. Just a bit extra for them if that’s ok..? Secure off road parking for cars/trucks is included in any rental price at a vehicle for every two horses. Seem fair?
So, you can see you could bring a whole 16-20 horse circus c/w grooms, brooms and yourselves if you need to. We’ll do all we can to work with you to make your season the best ever. Or you can bring less horses or one – but of course, you may have to share!
Now, a little more yet. You can not only get the best place in town for your seasonal stay, but also save yourself some serious money coming to Hart-Woods Equestrian! How..?
