Welcome to Legacy Hill Farms A World Class Dressage Training Center Castle Rock, Colorado
After 25 years of experience, integrity and quality, our mission remains the same....
Producing happy, healthy horses is our #1 goal.
How do our horses live and play? First, we are so blessed to live in one of the most beautiful spots in Colorado. Legacy Hill Farms is set in a peaceful countryside overlooking the majestic Colorado mountains. We provide 12'x12' stalls plus oversized stalls (12'x14') with 24 hour video monitoring by on-site property owners. We feed hay 5x per day and a specially formulated grain/mash 2x per day with night check after 9pm. We have a dedicated live on-site experienced equestrian staff, 24 hour video monitoring including the option to watch your own horse while in their stall. Our horses have long turnouts in safe paddocks. Our feeds include sprouted whole grains and seeds mixed with top quality feeds plus we provide 'no chemical' well water and the best consistent Colorado hay and alfalfa available grown in the mountains.
Indoor and outdoor arenas with sand, rubber and oil footing groomed to perfection.
Long, supervised turnouts in safe paddocks for play time.
A state-of-the-art automatic imported Kraft Euro-exerciser for conditioning, rehab and cold mornings when horses need time to warm up tendons and muscles before turnout and training.
Beautiful pastures to trail ride and train on at sunset, sunrise or anytime.
On-site experienced property owners who cultivate and value a fun, supportive, 'no-drama' community of clients.
A beautiful, highly functional barn including full-sized indoor and over-sized outdoor arenas, heated lounge with kitchen and viewing into indoor arena, 21 custom scrolled oversized stalls with rubber mats, custom designed watering system, wash rack with hot/cold water, custom double state-of-the-art light therapy/thermal solarium tack-up stalls, oversized tack room and 4 tack up bays.
At Legacy Hill Farms, each horse is treated with an attention to detail in their care and training. It is our philosophy that having happy horses is more important than drilling movements and overworking horses. Keeping up with what the industry dictates for age appropriate training is not always in the best interest of each horse or rider. Each horse is unique and many factors must be considered in their development.
Michelle Lauber, owner/coach
In training, everything comes down to the tiniest of details for the maximum influence (Commendations). We must listen to the horse. We must be fair. It is like teaching children in a classroom. Horses must be given the time and patience to teach the basic fundamentals in a consistent way considering their individual nature, talent, intelligence and character. They must be given time to develop strong, supple muscles in order to do the work we ask of them. Training cannot be rushed. Compassion and recognition for the individuality of each horse's ability and a commitment to placing the horse's welfare above all else is paramount to success and nurturing the utmost in their quality of life.
