Cedarwood Farm is the base for Daybreak Stables, Inc, and home to our Thoroughbred racehorses, broodmares, young horses, sport horses, and retirees. As we have reduced our number of horses in race training, we have opened up space across our property, from our beautifully situated custom-built center aisle and shed row barn complex, to our rolling fields and pastures.
We fully understand how much benefit horses can bring to the human experience, the bonds we naturally forge with the horses who come into our lives, and we know it is a perfect fit to offer Cedarwood Farm to a select, limited number of special horses looking for the ideal situation in which to spend their well-earned retirement. Our facility and our skill set are uniquely suited to offering custom levels of “gold standard” horse care for those owners who want to find the idyllic situation, with hands-on daily professional care, for their retiring equine partner. We offer 3 levels of premier service for your horse, none of which are the typical large-herd type of retirement experience. We welcome your exploration of our services and our facility. If you have questions, we are here to answer them. We love our farm and our animals, and would love to share them with you and yours.

Small Group Turnout
Your horse will be turned out 24/7 in small groups of 2-4 horses in paddocks of roughly 6-12 acres each. Paddocks are rotated and rested throughout the year, so the quality of the grass forage is maintained and we are able to manage fertilization and seeding of rested pasture.
Our version of large group turn-out is quite premium! Your horse will be in a group of 3-6 horses on 15-20 acres of fenced, rolling pasture. These fields have roomy sheds and top-quality orchard grass or orchard grass-alfalfa mix hay is available in the sheds, free choice, year-round.
