A new home "Rockingham Equestrian Center"


We moved from Fiore Farms to Rockingham Equestrian Center.  I won't go into the details, but our barn managers moved to a new location as well.  Oberon is pasture buddies with Zip, a QH gelding that made the move as well and they are getting along fabulously.


 I have been lucky enough to find a place with an indoor arena


and the stall situation is awesome.  He has a door to an outside paddock, where he can see his neighbors in the paddock next to his and he can also watch the action in the indoor arena.


I miss my old barn "family" (humans and horses) but I think we landed on our feet.  This is a photo of the one of three horse barns on the property.


Most importantly, the attention to detail by the farm's owners is wonderful.  I think we will really enjoy ourselves in our new home.

I hand walked Oberon on the few short trails that surround the farm the first full day.  He was awesome and I was proud as he went out all by himself.  The following day I rode him, again, by himself, and he was perfectly behaved.  I love this little guy so much.

What a beautiful place! It sounds like there was some drama, and I'm sorry for that, but you sure did land in a very nice location! I'm, jealous of your nice indoor arena.

Sounds like you'll end up loving your new place even more than the old place. It looks like a really nice facility and you can't beat an indoor! What a good boy Oberon was!!

Oberon is so gorgeous!! I love those dapples. Also, could just smell the hay and straw in those photos, made me quite nostalgic :-) A gorgeous place--glad everyone landed on their feet

Moving is difficult at best. And if the move is not your idea, it's terribly difficult. You hopefully will stay in touch with some stable buds and maybe trailer to ride sometimes.
Your new place is nice. I am glad that you have an arena. The Stall with open door to paddock IS SIMPLY THE ONLY WAY to go! I believe the horse thrive on not being trapped in a stall. I know some don't have the choice- but now that I have had it for my mare for the past 4 years, I have noticed the difference in her.

I truly pray that you may thrive
there with Oberon. He is such a love!
