About Us

Applewood Farm, a full-time dressage training facility, provides a secluded, quiet atmosphere for rider and horse to learn and train together. Our training facility includes a Precision-EQ all-weather outdoor dressage arena, a covered arena, 10 acres of lush pasture, and accommodation for 20 horses. It is owned and operated by Brad Thatcher.

Established in 1986, Applewood Farm was initially a 15-stall barn and was home to all sorts of hunters, jumpers, dressage and driving horses. We subsequently expanded to 20 stalls and dressage progressively became the central theme among the clientele when Michelle Gibson first boarded her horses here in 1992.

By 1994, Applewood was hosting its first Olympic fundraiser for Michelle, and Peron was living in stall number 1.  Following the 1996 Olympics, as more and more horses came in for training, our boarding program shifted to become exclusively dressage oriented.

Since opening its doors in 1986, Applewood Farm has been home to local, regional, national, and international champions. We feature educational opportunities such as frequent clinics, symposiums, and riding instruction. We encourage educational activities and opportunities so everyone can experience achievement and enjoy dressage.
