EN Today: Barn Tour – Gold Medal Equestrian

EN’s “Barn Tour” series takes readers inside equestrian facilities all over the country. Check out this one in Templeton, California.

Rebecca Braitling was kind enough to send us some photos of Templeton Farms, owned by Gina Miller.  Bec and Gina Miles are based there, in Templeton, California.  Thanks so much for sharing photos of this gorgeous facility! -Visionaire

From Rebecca:

So here’s our barn, home of Gold Medal Equestrian. We are based in Templeton, on California’s central coast. We are located 20 min from Cal Poly College in San Luis Obispo and around 30 mins from Twin Rivers Ranch, so XC schooling is close by. Gina Miles and I have been based here at ‘Templeton Farms’ for almost a year now. The barn is owned and built by Gina Miller, a wonderful supporter of all things Equestrian. She has dressage horses, so we weren’t too sure what she would think of us invading the barn with 30+ event horses.. Luckily our ‘structured chaos’ was welcomed…There’s a 24 stall barn, 18 grass turnouts, a further 17 outdoor fields with covers plus two huge irrigated pastures. We also have a Pony Club and GME riding school located on site. There’s a covered ring, outdoor jump ring, perimeter trail, river access and plans to complete our Derby field too. This is definitely a dream barn for us, ideal for training horses at all levels and disciplines.

We are incredibly lucky to have irrigated pastures as well, so the barn horses can enjoy daily grass turn out.
