There is a profound, speaking quiet at the heart of Winsome Farms in winter, especially around Christmas. Maybe because this is the time of year when our hearts are the most willing to hear. Or perhaps there is truly magic in this time, a sweet suspension of disbelief that allows us to believe that our 4-legs can […]
Congratulations, Alyson Brown, on your new horse William and big thanks to Amanda Fisher of California’s Isola Stables for making it happen. This sweet boy with his fancy knees and big heart has been a talented and beloved shepherd, bringing juniors up the ranks—but it wasn’t always that way. Born and bred in New Zealand, […]
From Randy… Jessie and I are driving the horses home after 2 amazing weeks of showing with the best the west coast has to offer. Happily, we not only held our own, but became the ones to beat. Hannah Holik took her riding to a new personal best starting at the LA National. With her […]

This 6 year old TB mare is humiliating her warmblood cousins with reliable, consistent behavior. Even with snow sliding off the roof she remains unflappable.
WOW, what a whirlwind we’ve been on! So much has happened that I hardly know where to begin. To capsulize our winter and spring in California, I’d say, “normal horse showing.” What is meant by this remark is that we had super highs, super lows, lots of progress, prizes, disappointments, gains, and losses. It is […]
I have ridden at Winsome Farms for 30 years. I have shown my horses with them as well. I have found them competent, easy to work with, and understanding. My son – who is autistic – also owned and showed a horse at Winsome, and was treated with compassion and adjustments for his disabilities. I […]
