Luxequestrian Interview: Fulfillment at Graycliff Farm

Wellington, FL – November 6, 2013 - Welcome to Graycliff Farm. This magnificent property, featured on Luxequestrian, encompasses 115 acres of fields, Lake Winnebago waterfront, and exceptional equestrian facilities. Quality of life is paramount at this unique estate, as reflected in the diverse recreational opportunities for horse, rider and family.

Winston Churchill once said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” As the owners shared their memories of life at this fine estate, a theme remained constant: horses have enhanced every aspect of their lives, at the property and beyond.

Home to two World Champion Morgans, the owners of Graycliff Farm have worked diligently to maintain the favorable attributes of the Morgan breed, while improving the horse with every generation through their renowned breeding program. Amidst the lush grass, large paddocks and stunning facilities, champions of tomorrow are bred, raised and trained with expert precision. Designed with the horse in mind and a rich lifestyle diverse with opportunity, the property reflects the highest of standards, embodied in every detail from horse to home.

What makes your property special (with regards to equestrian amenities) compared to other facilities in the Stockbridge, WI region?

Lake Winnebago is quite large, but there is very little lake frontage left available for purchase and development. We have nearly 1000’ of unspoiled lakefront. As the property slopes back from the lake, it is crossed by the Niagara Escarpment and sections of limestone cliffs. The Niagara Escarpment is an exquisite natural wonder that forms Niagara Falls and runs westward through Canada and some of the Midwestern states. On its south side, our property borders a beautiful, quiet, 300-acre County Park noted for the Indian effigy mounds left by early settlers. We have tremendous trail-riding opportunities. The barn and paddocks are situated where the land has a gentle roll. Because of the area’s limestone content, we have similar soils and grasses to Kentucky. We aren’t boaters but a dock and boathouse could be added.

Kindly share a special memory of the property.

In 2005, we held a “Celebrate the Morgan” equine event on the farm with over 300 people in attendance. There were demonstrations of the dressage, hunter, western, driving, etc disciplines and several clinics. The most popular clinic was an animal communicator / whisperer and an aromatherapist. She asked us to nominate one of our horses for the “communication”. I enlisted my retired firstborn, Graycliff Jumby Bay, known affectionately as “Jumbo Shrimp” by his former trainer. The whisperer met Jumbo moments before her clinic was to start and wanted to know nothing about him but his barn name. I was a little skeptical and remained so twenty minutes into her clinic as Jumbo chewed on her pant leg but otherwise ignored her. Then Jumbo communicated something to the effect that he was better than sixth place in Oklahoma. When she relayed this to the crowd, I was floored – Jumbo and I had made only one trip together to the World Championship Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City years before where we took sixth in our driving class! Apparently, he then felt comfortable enough with the whisperer to open up more fully, telling her he had “no purpose” and playing the victim card convincingly. One woman was moved to tears and two others offered to buy him. The next day Jumbo and I went for a quiet walk where he was appointed Herd Supervisor and given a whiff of his favorite scent, angelica and saffron root.
