Gray Horse Farm
Gray Horse Farm, owned and run by Courtenay Baber, is an equestrian farm specializing in jumpers and eventing.
Gray Horse offers clinics hosted by the horse industries top recognized riders and trainers, along with shows throughout the show season.
I grew up in Central Virginia on horse farm. I began showing horses as child with mother and sister. My Parents were active supports of the horses as well as raising other cows and pigs for 4-H projects. We were active members Deep Run Hunt Pony. My family was active in the deep Run Hunt club. As a junior I showed in Junior Jumpers at rated shows in Virginia including the Roanoke Valley Middleburg National as well as many others. After returning from college my mother and I continued showing and started a small breeding operation of Dutch Warmbloods and Oldenburgs. This continued grow and my sister had was operating Richmond Saddlery and I was managing the mobile unit and showing my horses in adult amateur divisions. After the tack shop was sold I then began to show more locally and teach and helped my niece and step daughter. My niece and step daughter showed and enjoyed the horses through high school and into college. My mother continued breeding and with the help of my niece and step daughter we began breeding ponies as well. When my mother died in 2009 I ran the farm with my father an we operated a small boarding facility. After his death I decided it was time to move and began Gray Horse Farm. It is my hope this farm will be a place to bring out the best in everyone.
