Welcome to Madrona Park. We are located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We opened our doors in August of 2010 and hope to be around for a long time to come. We are currently focusing on Thoroughbreds, warmbloods, and arabians. Our horses mostly compete in racing and eventing. We also may have a few warmbloods competing in show jumping and dresssage as well. Madrona Park is a grand Stable however, we are hoping to keep on the small scale in order to produce high quality horses and not quantity.
The Owner of Madrona Park is Shay. Shay has competed in eventing her entire life and has a wealth of knowledge in the sport. She also spent many years retraining thoroughbreds off the track so Madrona Park is specially equipped for turning bad racehorses into champion event horses. Shay spent her teen years as a working student for many of the highest level eventing stables and has taken with her the meticulous attention to detail they require. Because of this Madrona Park is one of the cleanest, caring, safest stables around.
Madrona Park sits on several hundred acres of lush hilly pasture land and wooded mountainous regions. The Park's facilities include a full cross country course from pre comp to advanced level. The Park also contains four standard sized outdoor dressage rings, two larger outdoor jumping rings, two roundpens, two hotwalkers, and a full turf and dirt racetrack. Numerous trails wind around the grounds and go through all types of terrain from valleys to mountains to rivers and lakes. There are six barns at the park, two of which are kept for visiting horses currently as we do not have that many horses. One is set up for horses currently in racetraining and includes 30 12 X 12 stalls, a feedroom, two tackrooms, and two washstalls. The main barn is for all our other competition horses and includes 50 12 X 12 stalls with attatched paddocks, two feedrooms, four tackrooms, eight washstalls, the main office, as well as being attatched to the main indoor arena. We also have a broodmare barn set up for breeding with optional attatched pastures, similar to our stallion barn. Our stallion barn is currently empty as all our stallions are in full competition.
Other animals on the farm include four barncats and now six kittens. Our cat, Missy just had a litter of kittens so we will now be blessed with even more mouse hunters. Missy is a red calico who mated with our only tom cat, Tom, who is a blue tabby. We were blessed with one red tabby calico male, cream tabby male,a torti calico female, a blue cream female, a blue cream torbie female and one torbie calico female. They are all strong and doing very well. The other cats include a black and white female and an red calico. We currently have no dogs residing at the farm however we are looking to purchase a nice gaurd dog for the stables.
Madrona Park consists of many helpful staff members in order to make everything happen. Shay is the owner and assistant trainer at Madrona Park. Our head trainer is Annie Milton, who has also been competing in eventing her entire life. Annie has competed up through CCI**** and even rode for her country at one point. Now she uses all of her knowledge and experience to train the show horses of Madrona Park. Tom Stewart is also one of our resident riders here at Madrona Park, he is semi retired from upper level competition but does enjoy schooling the horses around a prelim or intermediate course. Jan Stockton is the head trainer for our arabian division. She has been riding, training, and breeding arabians since she could walk and we are very happy she has decided to join our team. Remus Silvester is our resident racehorse trainer, he has been with us from the beginning and has learned a great deal of knowledge about racehorses in his 55 years. Elizabeth Sullivan is our stable manager and also an aspiring event rider. She usually has time to compete one or two horses a year. Michelle Robinson is our head dressage coach, she is great with the younger horses and riders as well. Hannah Kelly is our only working student currently and she is leasing MP Free Fallin. We may be looking for more working students in the future.
