WAWF is a small, rustic farm nestled privately below Simsbury’s picturesque mountainside. WAWF clients are welcome to 16 acres of property with a large outdoor riding ring and riding fields available during the warm months. There is an indoor arena and a heated viewing room for the colder months. WAWF has a wide variety of unique jumps for lessons and training with different courses set up weekly. The footing in both rings are well maintained, watered and dragged daily. The barns are airy and well ventilated with ceiling and aisle fans. Each stall is fixed with a mesh metal half door. These doors help keep the barn airy and cool in the summer time. For winter months, each stall has outer dutch doors that close tightly to protect against New England’s winter elements.
WAWF offers our clients many amenities including; laundry, Wifi, administration of medication and managing schedules with farriers, veterinarians, dentists, massage therapist and chiropractors. We also invite our boarders to participate in various clinics, workshops and educational seminars held at the farm. The staff at WAWF are advocates of constant communication. We send out frequent email communications to the client community with the happenings around the farm. These email notices often consist of; farm improvements, show successes, new client or horse announcements, work shops and clinics offered, membership due dates, dates for spring and fall vaccines, weather alerts, barn gatherings, updated horse show schedules, maintenance happenings, etc.
WAWF’s management has “the thumb on the pulse” at all times. The staff meets weekly for staff meetings and the trainers schedule yearly meetings with the clients. These meetings are used to talk about short and long-term goals, horse show plans and training programs.
