> our boarders & friends
We have lots of fun at the farm. No one takes themselves too seriously.
Everyone shares the same passion and desire to learn and enjoy with
their horses. The environment at the farm is one of support rather
than competition with one another. You can always count on anyone
at the farm to lead a hand, offer a helpful suggestion or assist with
the care of your horse. Here are some photos of our current and past boarders and their horses.

Some of our boarders like to compete but there is no pressure to
do so at our farm.

the obstacle course with the second best time.
Each year we do many group activities for fun. 2005 started out with
the first annual Thoroughbreds'
birthday party. We played games and shared birthday cake.
We dressed the horses up for the contest and even the newest Thoroughbreds
off-the-track were not upset by the garlands and bells they were adorned
with. Click here to read the
full story and see more photos.
We often go to "away" events which include:
trail rides, hunter paces,
poker rides, fox
hunting, horse shows and combined
training events. Each event usually includes a full picnic lunch.
We often say, "No one goes away hungry at Bits & Bytes Farm".

Farm event. This one was at the Poplar
Place Horse Trials.
Please stop by and introduce yourself and share our food if you see
our group out somewhere.

Many of our boarders chose to compete but there is never any pressure
to do so. You should enjoy your horse in whatever way you prefer!
