Our Farm

Central Asian Equines is located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The climate is ideally suited for raising horses, and enables our horses to live outside virtually year-round.

Our stallions reside in a classic wooden barn on the bank of the Maury River, with attached shady paddocks. The mares, foals, and youngsters roam on the 1500-acre Three Graces farm, with safe fencing, auto waterers, and rolling grass fields, watching as endurance horses conduct their training on the 25 miles of dedicated trails.

Akhal-Tekes Grazing

Our foals are happy, healthy and well-adjusted, coming to greet visitors in the field. We believe in recreating the conditions the breed originated in, and feed a high-protein, high-fat diet with plain grass hay and forage, with ample if not full-time turnout. Our horses are not hot-house flowers, they roam freely to build great bone, balance, and strength, and adjust themselves as needed with adverse weather conditions.

We welcome visitors at our farm, please contact us if you would like to schedule a visit. We are located in Lexington, Virginia, an easy drive from the Lynchburg or Roanoke airports, and only a 3 hour drive from Washington, DC.
