A little Eventing Nation takeover today of our #FantasyFarmThursday column! Don’t miss this eventer’s paradise in Aiken, South Carolina.
Bridle Creek Farm was established in 2008 and was designed with the active equestrian competitor in mind. The 44.7 acre facility boasts a gorgeous nine-stall main barn along with two other shed row barns for a total of 14 stalls on the property in addition to ample turnout. For human living space, the main house is divided into a 2,200 square-foot owner’s apartment and an 800 square-foot guest apartment, which could be used for a resident trainer.
What will truly catch an eventer’s eye, however, is the riding space. With both a dedicated jump ring and a dedicated dressage arena (with mirrors!) you’ll never have to worry about making sure your grid doesn’t encroach on someone else’s 20 meter circle again.
The real crown jewel of this property may well be its very own cross country course designed by the one-and-only Eric Bull in collaboration with Boyd Martin. The 10-acre irrigated field offers beautifully constructed fences with questions for all levels of training. And just when you think you’ve seen everything the property has to offer, you’ll find that it backs up to miles of trails for hacking as well as a community gallop lane.
Bridle Creek Farm was the winter base for Boyd’s operation for several years and has since been home to other notable riders including Lillian Heard, Caitlin Silliman and Megan Perry. Many more familiar names of the eventing community have trained out of the facility as it has hosted Developing Rider and High Performance training sessions in past years.
