Horse Sales Testimonials

From Barbara V. re 7-year-old Picasso:

alt

Just to fill you in on what Picasso has been doing for the past few months. I now have a horse that I can take anywhere and have fun. 
 
Last Saturday Michelle showed Picasso at Morven Park and they were VADA/Nova Reserve Champion at Training Level. He has had limited showing and at his previous show at Compass Rose he finished first in one of his classes at Training Level and Michelle and he were the judges choice for best costume. 
 
Picasso and I competed in the Battlefield Equestrian Society's judged pleasure ride at the end of September and we came home with two ribbons!! At the end of October we went on the Flint Hill Volunteer Fire Department Ride where there were over 300 riders and horses. There are marked trails of 9-18 miles and you go at your own speed. I rode him two days and he was great.

 From Diana K. re 6-year-old Ziggy:

Here is a selfie I took of him and me yesterday afternoon trail riding!  It's a good demonstration of how calm he can be that I can take a picture while riding! :) You can definitely use any of them on the site and anything i've shared about him.  I don't mind providing some testimonial, you can use anything that's useful.   He has been great and is very smart, he has learned to come when he is called!  We've been trail riding again regularly now that the weather is good, and you can really see his Crabbet traits out on the trail I think. He's very brave and has no problem going out alone or in a group. Just this past weekend there was a wild horse adoption event on the meadow where we enter our normal trails, and even with all the cars, people and wild horses penned up, he made it past all the excitement on his own - twice!  I've even used him as a lead horse for another horse who was shy about going out into the woods alone.  Sometimes I try new things with him and he always impresses me for being so young- he lets me ride with my bareback pad no problem, and a few weeks ago I tried having him go over some poles that were set up on the ground, I hadn't tried that with him before but thought I'd see what he would do, and he went right over them with no hesitation right down the middle.  He's a fun companion to have and I'm excited to see what else we're going to do together in the future!

From Fiona, professional cello player, re 7-year-old April:

Dear Elaine,

I thought that you might like to see some pictures of April.

She has had a very busy winter, fitting into her new barn and learning all kinds of new things.
 
I absolutely love her and she is becoming a barn favorite as well :)
 
All the best

From Dr. Ariane re 7-year-old Sebastian:

Keep your fingers crossed. I have someone looking at Marvel Wed. I really want to replace him with another one of yours! I love this pix of Bastian and I! I brought him to a Dressage clinic last summer J with a German instructor. He was loved.
alt
I will keep you posted! Of course share the picture and our names! I am definitely good advertisement! Anyone can contact me that would like as well for reference and for me to share my enthusiasm!!

From Cat N., re 7-year-old Ruby:

Hi Elaine:

Ruby had her mani-pedi last Monday and the farrier was VERY impressed with her feet. She told me that Ruby's breeder "knows what she's doing" and was really glad that I was on board with the whole barefoot thing. She also said "This horse knows you." because she held Ruby for me for a second when I went to my car, and Ruby tried to follow me. Aw. I think I've gone from "that nice lady who brushes me and gives me snacks" to "You're my mommy!"

Here's a photo my uncle took of my little snorgle-horse. She is SO affectionate.

Best, 
Cat

Farm Overview

Harley Farm is a lovely 42-acre family farm tucked into the rolling hills of Middletown Valley. Located just west of Frederick, Maryland, we offer:

Pasture-based horse boarding in spacious fields with good shelter. A visitor looking across our pastures once called it "Horse Heaven." Amenities include a covered and lit training ring, Natural Horsemanship trainers/instructors, and miles of trail riding all around.
  • Exceptionally gentle and versatile Crabbet Arabian* horses for sale. Several sweet and very well-trained horses are currently available.
  • Rare and hardy Cashmere Goats and cashmere fiber for sale. Friendly multipurose animals, the goats do a great job of clearing weeds and brush while growing the softest fiber imaginable. the fiber is natural colored (cream and two shades of brown) and available in yarn and cloud form.
  • Green Goat Organic Weed Control. Due to family time commitments, we are currently limiting our efforts to larger, local weed-whacking jobs. 
*Almost all of the horses at Harley Farm are purebred Arabians with 65% to 100% Crabbet bloodlines. Although our horses have many great ancestors, most are particularly influenced by two exceptional stallions named Azraff and Ferzon. To learn more about this unque line of horse, Google "Crabbet Arabian horses" or visit www.ecahs.org.
