Our main location in King, North Carolina supports all of our training services. The partnership with Eddie Carter of East Bend helps further our breeding operation. The East Bend farm houses our broodmares, weanlings and yearlings until they’re brought to King for breaking and training. Our goal of maintaining two separate facilities is to create the most successful atmosphere possible for everyone. Thank you to all of our long time customers for your continued support through the years and welcome to all new clients whom we hope to keep around for years to come! Everyone else, feel free to stop by anytime!
