Nestled in the heart of horse and wine country, Sacred Springs Farm offers everything a horseperson could desire. Our 150 acres of woods, trails and paddocks offer an infinite diversity of beauty. The demanding rider will find a 6’5” high round pen to work younger horses, a 300 ft long riding arena for dressage or jumping and miles of trails with cross country jumps. The demanding topography of Rappahannock County, Virginia, is the perfect terrain for training and conditioning our athletic horses.
Sacred Springs Farm offers seasonal rental of our lovely three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath cottage, just recently redecorated. Tastefully furnished in 18th century style, the cottage features a well-equipped, large kitchen and living area, with an open, airy floor plan. Enjoy your favorite shows on the satellite television while reclining on the leather sofa in the living room. French doors lead from the living room to an outside deck area where you can watch the horses graze while relaxing at the dining table. If you choose to dine al fresco, your meal can be prepared on the gas grill. The cottage also has central heating and cooling, a laundry and internet access.
Each bedroom is beautifully decorated, with the master suite on the first floor and two bedrooms and a hall bath on the second level. The master suite features cypress wood flooring, a queen white iron and brass bed, a private bath, and French doors leading to a small sitting porch overlooking the front paddocks.
The upstairs bedrooms include a room with a queen mahogany sleigh bed and a second room with twin cherry four-poster beds.

The farm also offers a new dressage arena and round pen, perfect for exercising or schooling your horse.

For the Equestrian:
There is no better way to appreciate a Lusitano Horse than to try one. At Sacred Springs Farm, in addition to training the horses in our round pen or riding arena, we ride them all regularly on trails as often as possible. Not only is it a perfect way to “condition” a horse physically, but a gentle walk in the woods is as relaxing for our companions as it is for us.
Our Farm is situated on 150 acres of rolling hills, most of it wooded. Our trails are soft, shaded and well maintained. Several creeks and natural obstacles provide opportunities for more extensive training. We have a 12 cross country trail jumps for more advanced riders and horses. The properties directly adjacent to ours offer over 60 miles of trail riding without having to cross a road or see a house.
While this is all for our private use, occasionally we will invite advanced riders who are interested in the Lusitano Horse to join us on a trail ride.
