Olympic rider Phyllis Dawson's Windchase farm.  Event horses for sale, boarding, training, working students, breeding to Brandenburg's Windstar.

     On June 10, 2008, lightning struck our barn and burned it to the ground.  Through good luck, the bravery of the staff and friends rescuing the horses, and perhaps some good fortune watching over us, no people, horses or animals were lost or hurt.  Here are some photos of the barn while it was being rebuilt.

The first day of construction: July , 2008.

Ready for the horses to move back in, October 2008.
