Welcome to Bascule Farm  Summer 2010

We are ecstatic to announce our beautiful new Dressage Indoor!  It's huge, has great light, fantastic airflow and great footing!  Only the best for our clients and horses!

Bascule Farm, LLC, is nestled on 200 of the most beautiful equestrian acres in the gentle rolling landscape of close-in Montgomery County. We foster a park like setting to help separate the busy world around us from our enjoyable horse experience.  We hope our farm reflects our philosophy of how we relate with our horses and with our clients.

Our boarders and clients say it all the time, "Bascule is different. It doesn't matter if you are an adult working professional just beginning to ride, or a seasoned competitor at the upper levels, you feel like everyone is valued and belongs to the Bascule Family."

Our focus at Bascule is on the best care and training of both horse and rider. Primarily an Eventing and Dressage Barn, we thrive on progress, whether learning to find your balance on your first horse or preparing for the "big time." Bascule formally competes in over 18 Events and shows annually. We haul, support and coach up to 20 riders on any given weekend. Additionally, many of our clients are active Pony Club members, local Hunt Club members, upper-level USEA riders, and dedicated Dressage riders.

In The Equiery , Mike Hillman wrote of Bascule, "... Julie's barn is a well-oiled machine, with as many as 20 of her students competing at one event. Everyone helps out and provides encouragement, and the non-competitive people act as grooms, hand holders, and even jump judges."

Bascule has the technical expertise, impeccable care, and high expectations needed to produce continued success. We also recognize and care about protecting your investment. But what appeals most to our riders is the sense of friendship, camaraderie and even family that is present on a daily basis.

As you can see, our barn is different. The same high standards demonstrated by our trainers hold true for our clients and staff. Come see why we have a very low turnover and how happy our people and horses are!

We offer several stall boarding options with instruction and or training packages, leasing for non-owners, trailer in lessons, horses for sale, consignments, and the starting of young horses. Come share with us the joys of true horsemanship.
