Mophah Farm - Winter Event Training Facility

Windurra's event horses are lucky enough to be based at Ilene Boorman's beautiful farm in Aiken, SC during February and March. This equestrian heaven, located at Bridle Creek, is 30 acres in size and is the state of the art training center for any top quality event horse. The arena is 70 m x 30 m, rubber surfaced ring with a unique watering system that is ideal footing for the horses. There is paddock after paddock of fully boarded fence and turn out fields of every size to give all the horses ample time to relax under the sun. The actual barn is very similar to a Marriott hotel with no expenses spared on the state of the art design and layout of the stables.
There is unlimited hacking, as Bridle Creek is on a 3000 acre piece of land that allows you to ride for hours and hours without crossing your tracks. There are unlimited trails for fitness work including a 900 m hill gallop that can be used for speed and endurance training. The Bridle Creek equestrian development also has a community cross country schooling area that is great for young horses, including a water jump.

We are very fortunate to be neighboring next door to the US assistant team vet, Kevin Keane DVM, which makes it very convenient for the treatment of the horses. The farm also neighbors Olympic gold medalist Phillip Dutton, which creates a sensational coaching environment from America's leading rider.

In 2012,Ilene plans to develop her farm even further, putting in an Olympic sized and surfaced jumping ring, along with a cross country schooling field which will include all the questions needed to train young horses including bank fences and water fences. There will also be seven new turnout paddocks which should make this farm the safest and most luxurious winter training facility in Aiken.

Mophah Farm requires all people riding on the facility to sign a release. Mophah Farm also requires a ring fee for outside horses using the facility of $20 per day, $40 per week, or $100 per month (depending on usage).

We've had a fabulous winter down here in Aiken & wish to thank Ilene Boorman for the positive experience we have had at Mophah Farm. We look forward to next season!!
