The Baxter Barn

A haven for your horses!


Everything to keep your horse comfy!

Our newest addition to Acadia Acres is the beautiful Baxter Barn.  We have to boast a little here.....several top horse professionals put their thoughts together for a comfortable and efficient barn.  Each resident has a private tack room and feed room, with a keypad code matching their home. The cinderblock barn includes 10 stalls, 2 washstalls, a washer/dryer and bathroom.  The private tackrooms are designed for optimal storage and efficiency.  Easy access to the large, shady paddocks makes for easy care! To top it off, our 100' x 200' GGT footing arena can be set up with a jump course or dressage arena, depending on your schooling needs. There is also an adjoining derby field to school - what more could you want!

A barn is born......   We started in mid October with bare ground and on January 15 we welcomed our winter guests and their lovely equine friends.  While anyone who has been involved in a construction project knows that the process is painful and full of anxiety, the end result has been nothing less than spectacular!

First the slab, then the walls!  Suddenly it started to look like a barn with stalls, a private tack room and feed room for each home, washer/dryer and even a bathroom!  On the end overlooking the paddocks the manager's apartment looks great!  Intense work for three solid months ended with a finished result with many happy residents.

100' x 200' GGT Arena

Our new state-of-the-art arena is up and running! Professionally built by Longwood Arenas in Ocala, the riding arena is perfect. GGT footing and a dedicated sprinkler system make your workouts the same day-in and day-out. It will always ride the same no matter what the weather. We had the opportunity to try it out last week and it was truly amazing! One horse is older and was stiff walking to the arena but once he walked on the GGT footing he was a happy boy! Come see for yourself!

The arena was professionally constructed by Longwood Arena and Lights installed by MidState Electric and surrounding fence supplied by Seminole Fence,  Many hours of hard work have allowed us to have a perfect riding surface with ample light to work late into the evening on versatile footing!
