Touchstone Acres is home to Lipizzan horses and Jacob sheep, two "threatened" livestock breeds, according to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
Touchstone Acres is situated on 51 acres of prime farmland in the beautiful northern Shenandoah Valley. The gently rolling terrain is perfect for Lipizzan horse grazing. Our pastures have been renovated with timothy, orchard and blue grass to provide the ideal forage for our Lipizzan broodmares, foals and riding horses. Foal- safe fencing, shelters and heated water troughs complete the idyllic horse haven. We live onsite in the 1800s original farm house.
We breed and sell Lipizzans and occasionally Foundation Quarter Horses who excel at reining and/or cow work. We also breed Suffolk and Jacob sheep.
We offer a safe, friendly atmosphere and encourage continual learning of horse and rider. Horse health and nurturing good horsemanship are top priorities.
Pictured below is Neapolitano Samira VI, a Lipizzan stallion imported in utero from Lipica in Slovenia. His sire is an elite Lipizzan stallion at the Lipica Stud Farm.
We offer products we find useful for Lipizzan horses:
Medieval Saddle Pads: Perfect for the baroque or any horse! These lovely hand made pads make a beautiful statement for any or costume class.
Duett Saddles: Perfect for wide horses like Lipizzans, Arabians, Morgans, draft crosses--but also available in normal widths for any horse. We have several models on hand for you to see and ride in.
The "odometer" rolled over in 2011 for the second time-- we have had over 29,000 visitors!
