CMF's philosophy is one where the well-being of the horse comes first. We are a personal private facility with a focus on rescuing horses and providing them a safe place to live out their years. This commitment is evident throughout the property with features such as year round well-manicured grass turnouts. The horses are housed in a custom-built 9-stall barn equipped with mud-free runs, a spacious grooming area, a heated wash rack, tack room, feed room and office. Additionally, the farm boasts a 100x200ft all-weather arena with lights and 60ft covered round pen, both featuring All Weather TruTex Footing for the horses’ comfort and safety.
