    Kim spends many hours a day with the horses. I love the facilities and the people here. Kim does a great job watching over the horses. Also there is a nightly check on the horses that is not only a check on each inside horses, but also the outdoor horses. I have been at North Church Farms since January and have known Kim for many years. I have know all her horses and the care she has always given them has been wonderful. I have met all the trainers and they are wonderful. I will be taking some lessons myself even though I ride western. All are welcome here even though dressage is the main disapline at the barn. I highly recommend this boarding facility...it is a wonderful place to let your horse run in a beautiful field. My boys love it....

    North Church Farms has great care, great facilities, and great trainers. The manager, Kim, gives personal care to all the horses. Stalls are well maintained / bedded, quite roomy. Kathee and Madeleine are terrific trainers who have demonstrated significant improvements in horses, with skillful riding, teaching, and patience.
