We are a small english riding facility based in Arlington, IL. As a brand new facility North Ridge currently does not have much of a reputation but we plan on specializing in english pleasure, show jumping, and eventually entering halter and breeder showcases. As for our horses we do not house specific breeds, (for realism) all of our horses are adopted, rescued or are born at our facilities (we usually do not make foundation horses).
Our facility is divided into 7 separate lots,
Our stable includes 15 stalls, 8 of which are outside. Inside we have a merged feed/locker room next to a doubled wash rack allowing two horses to be washed in the same space. Each stall includes an automatic watering system, a shelf on the stall front, a mounted saddle rack, and hooks for a bridle and halter. Outside we have our eight stalls (four on each side of the stable) sheltered under a balcony that also covers the gates for our four paddocks.
Included in our training lot are two medium sized arenas, a round pen, and a fenced in area for any miscellaneous training that isn't done in our arenas. Our first arena is two stories and indoor. This arena is set up for jumping; it includes a small tack room, and a lounge room that leads to the upstairs viewing area. Our second area is our outdoor arena, and is not set up for anything specific
Although not currently in use, we have a small foaling barn on the property. This barn includes a feed room, small medical office, breeding room, and three large birthing stalls that lead out into paddocks
Although not currently in use , we have a sales barn on the property. This barn includes eight viewing stalls, the actual sales room, a holding area for horses about to be shown, a "sold" pen, a turnout paddock, and a loading area for buyers.
Turnout and Pasture
Across from our stable we have additional turnout. This lot includes eight small paddocks and one small pasture. Additionally, beside our stable we have several acres of pasture that are separated into two fenced in areas.
As you drive up to our entrance the first building you will see is our office building. Included is a small trophy, and lounge room, two office's for our attendant and the owner and a countered area for any short business handled at North Ridge.
