About Cedarbrook Arabians

The Farm:

Cedarbrook Arabians consists of a 25 acre facility in Wilmington, NC. The farm is located less than 5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean which provides a cool and calming breeze throughout the summer. The training barn consists of a 33 stall barn and uniquely designed office accompanied by the breeding barn consisting of 12 stalls. Stalls are a minimum of 12 x 12 with foaling stalls being 12 x 16 accompanied by video cameras to assist with foaling. All stalls consist of interior and exterior partitions with grilled windows, and fully grilled doors which allow for air flow and create an open atmosphere which makes our horses feel they are in a herd, thus directly contributing to their calm, easy going attitudes.

The barns feature fly spray systems and heated automatic waterers. For training and conditioning we have a 200’ x 80’ covered arena, two 60 foot bull pens, treadmill and a 4-horse Equineciser walker. The farm also features two presentation areas perfect for halter presentations and video purposes. The remaining acres consist of numerous pastures for mares and foal. Around the perimeter of the pastures is a track for training and conditioning as well as pleasure riding.


Staff:

All of the staff at Cedarbrook play an integral part in making this operation a success. And without each and every one of them doing their part it couldn’t work. However, there are two key positions that serve the main purpose of our operation.

Meet Our Performance Trainer...

Missy Walsh joined Cedarbrook in the fall of 2010, overseeing the training barn and marketing/sales division. Being involved with horses from a very young age, she purchased her first Arabian at the age of 12. From there on she was hooked on the breed. As a youth rider she had the privilege to ride and show with Dolorosa Arabians under the expertise of Rob Bick and Caralyn Schroter, winning her first national championship aboard TR Brazen in 1999. From there she had the opportunity to work and study under Rob and Caralyn continuing to learn from their knowledge and experience in the industry. Missy has had experience in all aspects of a training barn from riding and conditioning to grooming and show preparation. She also had the opportunity to work with Ginger Reagan of Reagan Equine MVS gaining a skill set in veterinary medicine making her confident in caring for the performance horses on a daily basis. She is very excited to be a part of the Cedarbrook family caring for and working with their wonderful horses.
