Ledyard Farms to Host Third Annual Open Barn



Ledyard Farms in King Ferry, NY, will host its third annual Open Barn on September 9, 2014. The Open Barn will include tours of the farm, dinner and entertainment. Ledyard’s Open Barn has grown tremendously over the last three years, and more than 250 guests are expected this year.

Friends and visitors will enjoy touring the farm to see the Morgan horses, Highland cattle, Jacob sheep, peacocks and other animals. Last year’s Open Barn featured jousting, and it was a huge success. The jousters will return again this year in the exciting “The Celebration of the Morgan” production. 
During “The Celebration of the Morgan,” the young Morgan horses of Ledyard will be on display as well as Ledyard’s esteemed broodmares. “We will have 18 of our best yearlings and weanlings primped and ready to strut for our friends and guests,” said owner Bill Haines. There will be live demonstrations as well as video footage of the broodmares during their horse show days, as well as current Ledyard-owned show horses.

The event is free and open to the public. The party will begin at 5:30 pm. If you are attending the New York Regional Morgan Horse Show (NYRMHS), a bus will be available at 4:30 pm at the New York State Fairgrounds to transport guests from the show to the farm, and back. Ledyard is located an hour from the show, and the Open Barn will be held the evening before classes start. If you are driving, the GPS address is 1481 State Route 34B, King Ferry, NY.  Please visit facebook.com/ledyardfarms, email rcooper@ledyardfarms or call Rebecca Cooper at 603-380-1077 for more information, to sign up for the dinner or to reserve a seat on the bus.

“I personally look forward to welcoming participants in the NYRMHS and many other Morgan enthusiasts to have an enjoyable evening in the beautiful Finger Lakes,” Bill said.
