Avalon Farm Dressage training facility was built in 2011 and accommodates 18 horses which are hosted in spacious 12 x 12 custom fabricated stalls. Each stall features individually controlled overhead fans, lights and outlets. The barn is constructed with horse health, safety and comfort in mind, with large windows, open high ceilings, and extra wide aisle-ways to maximize air flow and overall well-being.
The custom-built stalls, office area, and all common areas are well lit and feature beautiful tongue & groove poplar for a distinctive look. The spacious, secure tack room is lined in tongue & groove pine with individual, custom-built 2x2x4 tack lockers, one per each horse. The tack room is climate controlled along with overhead fans to improve air circulation to protect saddles and other tack.
Amenities include Wi-Fi, climate-controlled laundry, restroom and lounge areas. A refrigerator and microwave are available for barn as well as client use.
The barn boasts two 12 x 12 indoor grooming stalls and a 12 x 12 indoor wash stall with both cold and hot water. Overhead fans in all grooming and wash stalls, one groom stall with a heat lamp. There are also outside hot/cold wash areas for those extra-busy times.
The newly covered riding arena is 80' by 210' with river sand / M-10 mix with lights for evening riding. 64' Round pin with M-10/river sand footing. Mirrors in the future.
The arena is nestled in a beautiful wooded setting, overlooked by the barn and an observation deck for events and client viewing. The entire barn area is elevated above the arena to enhance viewing of events and activities.
The facility currently has 8 grass paddocks, 5 dry lots, and 5 larger pastures for turnout use (weather permitting). The 8-acre facility adjoins 34+ acres of pasture and wooded areas for turnout, trail riding and quiet walks. This adjoining area also provides a nice backdrop adding to the overall tranquil experience.
Facilities are also a short trip to the North Georgia Premium Outlets (7 miles), inputs to Lake Lanier and several of N. GA's Premiere Golf Courses (Achasta, Chestatee and Chattahoochee Country Club...)
