Hollymead Farm, established in 2005, is located in the foothills region of North Carolina. The climate and rolling hills are ideal for riding and raising young horses. We are always happy to have visitors. Please contact us for directions if you are in the area and would like to stop by.
Our horses are maintained on pasture as much as possible. The fields are soil tested, fertilized and overseeded on a regular basis to provide a healthy natural grass diet for the mares and foals. We supplement the pasture with a high quality mineral supplement to meet nutritional needs. Natural diet, combined with the physical conditioning the hills provide, give our foals a good start in life.
Our Connemara mares have been trail ridden, shown in competition and three have been fox hunted. We believe that the mare's temperament is most important. They are treasured riding ponies and nurturing mothers to their foals. Please visit our Connemara Pony Mares Page to learn more about our mares.
Our 2018 news is that Hollymead Swan Bay has been purchased from her Australian owner and has returned to Hollymead Farm. She spent 2 and 1/2 years in Canada and produced a lovely colt foal that is living in NY state. She will be started under saddle this year.
