Having completed a $100,000 capital project to renovate our facility, we invite you to come and see our results! The farm is on the National Register for Historic Places, and we have strived to remain true to its 1904 character!
Roger has worked hard, as our Director of First Impressions. Everyone enters the facility through a long walk through the trees, enabling everyone the ability to leave their troubles behind and enter the “peaceful zone.”
Brook Hill has 60 acres of lush pasture in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where our horses all graze together, 24/7.
Bertrum’s Creek runs along the outer boarder where the horses always have access to clean running water, and we have plans on fencing the last field to include the pond.
We have expanded the barn to include 22 stalls, keeping with the original design.
2 wash stalls and 2 feed rooms have been added to help take care of all of our horses.
There is room for all of our tack, a space for each horse’s equipment and cubbies for the participants in our program.
Our Equine Lab is well equipped with x-ray equipment and medical supplies, and a wash stall for our horses. Currently our college students are working on a parasite study.
Our Classroom is spacious, and can accommodate 15 students comfortably. It is compete with 2 computer stations, an overhead screen and projector, and a kitchen area.
Our large Parent Deck was completed by Ben, a local Boy Scout who built it for his Eagle Project.
Brook Hill has a 125’ x 200’ riding arena for its United Neigh Program
And a smaller arena complete with a ramp for its Rockin’ Riders Therapeutic Riding Program.
Thanks to the ASPCA in 2016 we built a 2-stall run-in for a 5 acre field to keep our blind horses safe, and house our horses in rehabilitation.
In 2015, The Quaker Presbyterian church, led by Roger and Danny, completed our isolation pen. The 3 stall barn and field are ready for new rescues!
Brook Hill thanks their special donor for a 4 horse slant load Sundowner Trailer. This makes our work so much easier, and allows us to transport our youth and horses to events!
Our Final Renovation Project is the remodeling of the 1909 school house for office space. We now have heat, 3 bathrooms (one handicap accessible), a reception area, office space and a kitchen!
And, we are always upgrading our fencing, making it safe for all of our horses. Please come and visit and see for yourself, the wonderful renovations we have done.
What’s Next on our Wish List?
A Covered Arena!
Brook Hill runs its programs year round – an indoor arena is needed to provide services to our clients, and to be able to continue our rehabilitation work with the rescue horses during inclement weather. Please consider donating to help us reach this goal!
