Southern Pines Equestrian Center
Welcome to our blog! Our facilities are ran by Farrah Lockwood and Meredith Burchett who focus on eventing, dressage, and show jumping.
Southern Pines Equestrian's facilities include a large main barn, state of the art breeding barn, spacious indoor arena, training barn with indoor/outdoor arena, show jumping barn with outdoor jumping arena, and a dressage arena complete with holding stalls and seating for our guests, our horses also have large turnout areas for private and group turnout. In addition to our equine facilities we also have a large veterinary clinic for large and small animals and a dog kennel where we specialize in German Shepherds and Australian Shepherds.
Foggy Mornings and Surprises
Each morning at Southern Pines, all of our horses are let out for morning turnout in their respective pastures. Most horses go into group turnout. Some horses who do not play well with others or have special care needs go into private turnout.
Here is Katsura d'Auroy, RRE Pepper, and WFS Versage grazing and enjoying the cool foggy morning at SPEC.
Aerion's Intrepid is eyeballing the ladies from the boys' pasture. What a ladies man!
When staff was doing morning turnout we found a very pleasant surprise in the foaling barn. Our eventing mare Hantara foaled a filly, SPEC Debutante. Debutante's sire is the amazing Swedish Warmblood stallion Woodford's Daquini owned by Annie Emerson

After an eventful day, Meredith had a lovely schooling on SPEC Ashford, one of our homebred Thoroughbred stallions

Philippa Great to see your new blog!
@Anastasia-Dotsenko Thank you! Probably one of my only homebreds I am proud of so far
@Luna-Andrews Thanks Luna! Philippa is by far my favorite horse
Southern Pines would like to introduce our titled show jumping stallion, SBS Sailor!
Here is Meredith taking Sailor out for a morning school with some low grids. He soared over each jump carefully and with little effort.
I am in the process of editing a photo but I figured I would share a facility photo.

- Main (Eventing) Barn
- Round Pen

That's such a nice setup you have there!
@Callixta-Rosella Thank you so much!
I love how nicely your facilities come together! Seems like you a cute little setup.
@Janelle-Forsyth @Johanna-Masters Thank you both very much! I worked very hard to have a very structured feel so I really appreciate the compliments
SPEC Code Blue (SPEC Out of the Blue x Katsura d'Auroy) our homebred APHxTB practicing his dressage skills. He is showing a lot of promise to be one of our best homebreds yet! He has the gentle nature of his father and his mothers fluid movements. He is going to be the one to watch in the show ring. Although he is best at dressage, he is brave around cross country, and careful in the show jumping; making him unstoppable!
So nice to see your updates I hope your computer is doing better! Code Blue has such a beautiful coat!
Thank you Luna! I upgraded to a better computer with a high quality graphics card (I found out my old computer didn't have a graphics card that could withstand gaming). So I am enjoying a game with great graphics and the stability to enjoy my horses ❤️
@Farrah-Lockwood Yay that's good news
I know Code Blue is the latest update but I gotta say that I love the look of Sailor!
I love Sailor as well! He is definitely a great asset to my Show Jumping team!
Introducing SPEC D'Artagnan (aka "Artie"). Artie is our newest addition. He is a 3rd generation Selle Francais colt by WRNGS/PX Out of Cape Cod x Kenya d'Auroy. He is an eventing prospect, and judging by his rambunctious nature he will do quite well!
