Our new thoroughbred mares for the Retired Racehorse Project.

Shimmering Moon Farm is a family owned horse training and breeding facility specializing in thoroughbred sporthorses for eventing, dressage, and hunter jumper.

We look for thoroughbreds with fine conformation, athleticism, and a good temperament. We want horses that are a pleasure to ride, not leave us face down in the dirt. As we get older, the falls get only harder.

This is also the goal with the rest of our sale horses. Our sale horses have been here a minimum of six months. With one of our most recent sales, the Arabian had lived here for three years. We want to match the rider to the mount and we emphasize quality. We will not sell you a horse that does not fit your ability.

Shimmering Moon Farm also offers horse training, riding lessons, leasing, parties, boarding, and horse programs throughout the year. We take in limited number of rescue and unwanted horses to retrain and rehome.

We raise shetland sheep and cheviot/shetland cross sheep for wool and meat.

We hope you take a moment to view our beautiful horses and wonderful sheep.
