About Heaton Creek Farm & Stables and Charlton Ridge Farm

 

Heaton Creek Farm & Stables is a new name, but the facility has been around for many years operating under the name of Allynbrooke Stables. It was recently sold and now has the name Heaton Creek Farm & Stables. The new owner leases to Charlton Ridge Farm, operated by Kaitlyn Eigner. Despite being a larger facility, it has that comfortable, welcoming feel. It is important to us at Liberty Reins that we maintain our family feel and we are confident that this will happen at HCFS. The facility has 46 stalls altogether, and we have 9 of those 46 stalls. There are three different barns with stalls; the large barn and two small barns. One of the small barns has six stalls and we have all six stalls in that barn. We have two more stalls in the other small barn and one stall in the big barn. We only have one of our horses in the large barn so we don't need to be hanging out in that space unless you are with a Liberty Reins representative.

There is another trainer working at the barn and her name is Kaitlyn and she does completely different training than what we do at Liberty Reins. I am excited for our clients to get to see different disciplines at work while we are there. 

The space of the facility has large pasture turnouts for the horses and a nice path/trail around the outside of all the paddocks that allows us to still do some riding outside of the arena. 

Location: 
Maps will bring you right to the driveway very nicely. Here are a couple helpful hints.

  • The barn is not visible from the road.

  • The driveway is actually for two residences and the only marking are two small address numbers.

  • If you come from 219, there is a fenced orchard on the right and the driveway is immediatly after the fencing ends. 

  • The driveway will split and you will stay to the left and pass through a gate to head towards the barn. The main house will be on your left; go past it.


Parking:
Heaton Creek Farm & Stables is a larger facility and there will possibly be lots of activity when you arrive. We will do our best to meet you at the driveway on your first vist to the new place, but here are a couple guidelines in case we don't catch you.

  • If there are other cars parked around you can use them to guide you and park in alignment with them.

  • Parking is available facing the arena barn (biggest barn). 

  • There is also parking facing the tiny barn which is across the driveway from the arena barn. 

  • When you park, try to think in terms of having space for vehicles (including horse trailers) to be able to get around you.

Another Trainer:

HCFS has another trainer that works out of the barn; her name is Kaitlyn and she operates Charlton Ridge Farm. She is very kind and we have been able to work together very cooperatively in the space. The barn has multiple riding areas and Kaitlyn and I will work together to find the best ways to share space. In the winter, we will likely be sharing the indoor arena a lot, but the space is large enough and we will have ample space to keep everyone safe. 

Face Masks:

Please plan to have a facemask with you in case someone would like you to put it on. It is our goal that everyone feels accepted and safe in the environment. This topic has been very divisive for our country, but we do not want that to be the case for our clients. Our barn is our happy place and we want to keep it that way for all who come and enjoy the space and our horses. I don't anticipate there to be much difference from what we have been doing all along, but we want to make sure that all the folks that currently work out of HCFS to feel respected as well. If you have any specific questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 

Barn Ettiquette:
Because HCFS is a larger facility, there is likely going to be multiple things going on while you are there for your lesson/visit. Please be respectful of people and their space as they are working with their horses.

  • If you'd like to observe other riders/lessons, please ask before doing so.

  • NO TREATS! Horses have very sensitive digestive systems and they are not able to burp or throw up if they don't feel well in their tummy. If a horse gets a tummy ache, it can become life-threatening pretty quickly. Please don't feed horses any treats without specific permission from their owners. 

  • This is not a facility where you can wander around aimlessly. Our horses are in the small barns and you can feel free to visit any of them if you have some time before or after your lesson. You will be shown where you can be and where to avoid unless you are with a representative from Liberty Reins. 

  • Please do not pet horses that are not part of the Liberty Reins herd. This barn has 46 stalls and the spread of germs is something that we need to do our part to prevent. 

New Release Form: Everyone will need to fill out two release forms on their first visit or you will need to bring them with you before their first lesson at the new place. One form is for Liberty Reins and one is for the new barn. You can print the forms from the buttons below; this will save time during the first lesson. We also have hard copies if you are unable to print at home.
