MAGNOLIA MANOR FARM
Magnolia Manor Farm is a premier hunter/jumper equestrian facility, located in the heart of Germantown, Tennessee. In fact, we are less than a ten minute drive to the Germantown Charity Showgrounds at Poplar Pike and Melanie Smith Drive. We offer full-service boarding and professional instruction in English riding.
The farm is owned and managed by Nancy and Mitchell Steiner. Magnolia Manor Farm has quickly developed a reputation for cultivating a solid foundation in horsemanship as well as riding. Our program is based on safety as well as enjoyment. Students are encouraged to progress at a pace that is appropriate for each individual. The goal is to instill confidence and to boost self esteem. Our students place well at the schooling shows as well as the AA rated USEF horse shows. Magnolia Manor Farm is known for its beauty, integrity and professionalism. Magnolia Manor identifies each rider's needs and talents, as well as those of the horse. Every rider should finish their lesson with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
The mission of Magnolia Manor Farm is committed to operating as a fair and honest equestrian facility, where the primary focus is on the welfare and success of the horse and the rider. Our boarding is very limited with a wait list, so that each rider and horse recieves the highest level of care and service. All boarders are fully expected to participate in the lesson/training program and horse show schedule as recommended by their trainer. The environment is relaxed, warm, and supportive, yet all students take a very serious interest in riding and horsemanship. We try to provide our clients with the best care for their horses and to maintain a clean, organized facility.
Our lesson program is geared to insruct students to compete at all levels of showing from schooling shows to USEF AA rated show levels. Our philosophy is that, in order to succeed, all horses/riders need to be in an instructional program. Our lessons are customized to educate the rider and to challenge their abilities and to improve their weaknesses. Some lessons are private and some lessons are taught in groups, the quality is the same regardless. Magnolia Manor Farm is committed to a show quality education program. Our endeavor is to direct all horses/riders to the show ring to test their skills in a different venue. Lessons are homework, horseshows are a test of that home work.
Magnolia Manor Farm is a picturesque 45 plus acre facility located in Germantown, TN in beautiful Shelby County. We offer several private 1/4 acre paddocks for the show ponies and several private 1/2 acre paddocks for the show horses that need to be turned out alone. We also have several large paddocks for herd turnout. We have an all-weather lighted outdoor riding ring with show quality jumps and a lighted indoor riding arena with rubber footing and an air conditioned/heated viewing room. The viewing room also has a home work table, color TV with cable, DVD/VCR, refrigerator and microwave, so that clients have a comfortable place to wait for lessons or carpool pick up. There are also two grass training fields for conditioning or pleasure riding with show quality jumps and cross country jumps. These fields lead to meandering riding paths in shady woods crossing creeks and bridges under shady trees where you can let your imagination take you miles away from the city.
