World Class Equestrian Facilities in Alabama

The Original Barn, a five-stall barn, was built over 80 years ago and has since been retro-fitted as the home of the owners. They love living at the farm and sharing it for all to enjoy. 

The Show Barn recently underwent extensive renovations. The renovations expanded the main barn’s capacity to 24 stalls. Many intricate details such as chandeliers, stall sconces, high velocity ceiling fans and updated wash stalls were added to increase the comfort for both horse and owner. 

Our School Barn was built in 2008 and offers a casual and open feel that mirrors our Show Barn. This barn is utilized for horses in training with our affiliate trainer. Additionally, this barn is special to many couples because this is where they said their vows.

Windwood’s individual turn-out paddocks are a key component to the health and care of our horses. Individual paddocks have a golf course caliber irrigation system and are carefully maintained to insure grass growth through a rotation schedule. The turn-out rotation schedule is orchestrated by the head trainers and proven to help maintain horst health and limit injuries. The horses are separated, but can see each other, keeping them safer and happier, too.

Windwood Equestrian facilities offer a huge porch, which is the perfect place to view the main arena. The porch is an ideal spot to watch lessons, view the action on a show day or simply relax with a glass of iced tea after a ride.
