Mid and Upper Level Schoolmasters Available for Lessons and On Site Lease

Schoolmaster...such an interesting word! To me it means a horse that is confident in his/her training and execution of the exercises so that it can help a rider learn the timing without becoming rattled or upset. Most of them have a been there, done that attitude and are very sound. At the moment - I’ve got several in full work and they are available to be used for lessons and on site leases (showing is very possible). These horses have all shown above 4th level and have solid, easy lateral work, pirouettes and changes. They have been careful brought along to be shown and sold - but in the meantime, they should share what they have learned with other riders. All are over 16.2 hands with 3 correct gaits. Most are best in a double bridle - but that can be discussed as needed. Each horse has their own custom fitted saddle and bridle that can be used by a student.

Lesson prices start at $125.

Lease prices will vary based on the horse’s level of training and the amount of riding time that an individual can commit. A standard lease includes 2 lessons per week and the horse(s) will remain at Watermark Farm. At this time we are not offering off site leases but with a good match showing/competitions are definitely possible.

February 2017 seems like a long time ago!

By some magical event - the iPad has allowed me to log into Blogger!!! Cue the celebratory music! 🎢🎡🎢

Why the celebration? In my mind it is because this allows me to post about upcoming events and educational opportunities at the farm on a social media platform beyond Instagram and Facebook!!!


For now I’ll just start with the basics -

The website is being updated bit by bit. New pages and lots of new content will be added in the coming weeks. If you have updates on WF bred, trained or sired horses, please send the information and photographs (with permission and photo credit) to

We have 2 foals coming in 2019! Wei WF & Wylie WF are both confirmed in foal to Milky Way - German Riding Pony! That means we’re expecting two PALOMINO babies! They should mature around 15.1-16 hands and just be cute as a bees knees! You can see Milky Way here

My internet is spotty at the moment - so I can’t add ultrasound photos!! Boo!

Any way - we have training spaces and stalls available for boarding for Fall & Winter. 2 Working student positions are available also. We will have 2 clinics in October and December to wrap up the season. One is definitely a long lining clinic!

So I’m going to scoot before the internet takes a(nother) dive. Talk at you all later!!!!
