Leighton Farm was built for breaking, training and resting Thoroughbred racehorses, but transitioned easily into a training and retraining facility. We boast a 170 x 200 sand arena. Stadium and Cross Country jumps, and bridle trails to give each horse a wide variety of training opportunities.
Conveniently located in the mid-Atlantic region, Leighton Farm is less than 4 hours from Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia tracks. In addition, we are only 5 hours from New York Tracks. This allows us to access a large number of retiring Thoroughbred racehorses.
There is also treasure trove of equestrian competitions to choose from since the area is a hot spot for equestrian activities. We are have our choice of Three-Day Events and Horse Trials, Dressage Shows and Hunter/Jumper Shows. This allows us countless choices for promoting and educating the horses we have in training here at Leighton Farm.
If that weren’t enough, we also have access to some of the best horsemen in the world! Olympic greats such as Jim Wofford and Joe Fargis are located right in Virginia, Linda Zang is located right here in Maryland. A great many top horsemen frequent this area doing clinics. This allows our horses to be seen by countless top horsemen.
