Ridley, 40, and Chalk, 38, were two of Karen Jones’ best lesson horses, “co-workers” at New Era Farm in Maryland for over 25 years. Although they certainly knew each other during the time they were working, the geldings had little interaction and were never turned out together. Since Karen moved her business to Aiken in the fall of 2017, however, both horses have been retired and share a large paddock and roomy shed.
We are very pleased to announce that Custom Saddlery, maker of luxury saddles for Dressage and Jumping, will be holding a saddle sales event at our farm on Friday, February 22nd from 9:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m., and Saturday February 23rd from 9:00-5:00, Rain or Shine in our new Covered Arena.
The mission of New Era Farm is to teach riders of all ages how to ride and enjoy working with horses, whether they have their own or not. Owner, Karen Jones, has taught many advanced and competitive riders. Now her focus is on beginners, recreational riders and what she calls “re-riders’, those who have returned to riding after a long hiatus.
