Our Philosophy

The horses we have owned, and trained for others, have been our passion and livelihood for over 30 years. They have given enormously of themselves for our benefit, and only because we asked them to. We owe them a great debt of gratitude, as well as loving care and the chance at a happy retirement when they tell us they are ready for that. The horses we board live with the horses we own, and are cared for to the same standard. When your horse deserves to live its Golden Years in comfort, Cedarwood Farm is the premiere Virginia horse retirement facility.

Small Group Turn-out- The Gold Standard in Pasture-based Virginia Horse Retirement

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. Top quality orchard grass or orchard grass-alfalfa mix hay is available in the sheds, free choice, year-round. Prepared feed will be given daily to horses that require it in addition to the hay and pasture, for weight maintenance. These horses are checked thoroughly twice daily, and all of these fields are in view from the Cedarwood house. This is how we personally keep our broodmares and young horses, year ‘round.

Large Group Turn-out- The Gold Standard in Herd-based Virginia Horse Retirement

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 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. These horses are checked thoroughly daily, and are in view of the Greenwood house and during routine farm chores. This is the manner in which we personally have retired our Thoroughbred racehorses, and they live fat, happy, peaceful golden years with companionship and room to roam freely on lush pasture.
