Producing horse shows for 57 years and counting. Our private, family-owned farm opens its doors each year to produce and host a variety of equestrian events tying tradition and excellence into each show. Brownland Farm welcomes everyone like family. This was the vision of Brownland’s founders, Mack & Sissie Anderton, and it continues today with their family. We believe a solid competition balances the competitive nature of the horse show with a relaxed atmosphere where horses and riders alike can find a place to decompress. With four show rings and four schooling rings (surrounded by almost 200 acres) there is ample space for that balance to exist.
From it’s modest beginnings in 1963 as a place for horse enthusiasts to ride and take lessons, to hosting the 1997 AHSA Pony Finals, to today being the stomping grounds of some of the most notable equestrians in the world, we are proud of our past and are so grateful for everyone that adds to our shared history every single year.
