Located in beautiful Bolivia, North Carolina, our equestrian facility encompasses 60 acres and features many amenities. Miles of riding trails through the shady pines surround our main area of operations. Our 80' round pen and new 120' rectangular open arena are available for lessons, exercise and training. We offer pasture, paddock and stall boarding. Our four large pastures provide at least one acre per horse, and our seven paddocks are bordered by a large turn out field. Our staff offer top of the line riding lessons and training, as well as therapeutic equine activities with our certified equine therapist. Boarders and students have access to lockers, showers and a full kitchen, located in our main office building. Our barn is being prepared for an expansion and will soon include more stalls and two tack rooms. Recently we finished the construction of our state of the art wash pad. Come visit us and see whats new! We are always working to improve our facility so we can continue to offer the best possible services to our horses and their owners.
As a lifetime lover of horses, Ruth Jenkins wanted to share her passion. In 2013, she and her husband Phillip, an Army veteran, purchased 60 acres of land in Bolivia, North Carolina, just down the road from Ruth's hometown of Southport, North Carolina. With the help of family and friends, they began to transform what was once a nursery into what Horseplay Farms is today.
