The team at Cesar Parra's Performance Farm will be racking up some frequent flyer miles this winter. That's because the farm is doing something unusual this year – keeping its New Jersey barn up and running through the entire winter. And that means Cesar and the rest of his team will be traveling between New Jersey and Florida to ensure that riders and horses at both barns get the training and coaching they'll need to advance.
"By keeping both barns open, we're able to give our clients more flexibility and they can be confident that whether they want to have their horses in New Jersey or in Florida, they and their horses will be well cared for," Cesar said.
Performance Farms operates barns in both Whitehouse Station, New Jersey and in Jupiter, Florida. The decision to keep both barns open means that Cesar has now doubled the farm's capacity for training horses and riders. "We now have stalls available in both barns for the winter.
With the barn in New Jersey open, that has left some extra room in Florida for people who want to send in horses for training and showing during the winter season. And, we have some stalls still available in New Jersey for riders up north who want to stay home and train with us through the winter," Cesar said.
Performance Farms was started by Cesar in 1999 and both facilities offer everything the serious dressage rider requires – fabulous barns, riding rings – including Olympic-size rings and pastures for turn-out. The New Jersey farm, located in the New York metropolitan region, has an indoor arena and the Florida farm has a covered ring.
