The Ford Stables, The Heart of Our Riding Community.
Choose to ride your own horse, have our Equestrian Manager arrange the lease of a horse, or enjoy our great outdoors on one of Ford’s own mounts. Explore miles of trails and train with an instructor in dressage, jumping or Western equitation in the main stable area or the jump field paddocks near Henry Ford’s mansion. Our stable community includes participants of all skill levels, and even non-riders often avail themselves of opportunities to attend special events such as the Rolex competition in Kentucky.
Our 22-stall barn is a full-service boarding facility tailored to members’ needs. It features two large climate-controlled tack rooms, a well-appointed members’ lounge, laundry facility, showers, blanket and storage rooms, a sprinkler system, a 24-hour surveillance system with additional night watchman performing stall checks throughout the night, and year ‘round daily turnouts in grassy paddocks surrounded by premium horse fencing and shaded by centuries old live oaks.
Riding options include a 124’ by 229’ all-weather arena with a Westwind customized blend of footing, a turf jump field designed for both jumpers and eventers, and a wonderful mix of forest trails, open meadows and waterfront trails meandering for more than 10 miles.
