large pasture

gently slope for good water drainage

Location:  Starting from the square in Gettysburg; ride your horse eastwards towards Hanover on the Old Hanover Road (Route 116), crossover Rock Creek and up past Benner's Hill on the battlefield.   After you crest the hill, ride for 1/4 mile and turn right on Highland Avenue Road.   Follow the road past the Civil War statue for the 16th PA Cavalry as it bends, then down and up the hollow.  You can't miss the 4 rail fence.  Our field can be seen on the west side of Route 15, located south of Hanover Road and north of Baltimore Pike.

Our clients, our horses, consider this an idyllic setting, providing the pastoral comforts they've been looking for in a rustic environment.  They call it the "country club".  The photographs below are distinguished board members.
