Each day with the horses is such a blessing! We are so thankful each day our passion has been able to give us the “dream job”! Training and producing well rounded horses is our goal. We love being able to help our customers find their forever partner, the dream horse, is what we call them.
Thinking back to when you were a kid. Your imagining a beautiful four-legged friend in the backyard, you could run out to your horse and easily jump on and go for a ride through the fields, down a trail, or a jump, or go win a blue! These memories and daydreams, are what sparked a lifelong passion in us, as trainers and horseman, as well as all of you!
What most inspiring horsemen lack now is that confidence you once had to make the dream come true. That’s where we step in!
Our horses here at Emerald Creek are the all-around perfect partner you have been looking for! Our horses have been selected for soundness, confirmation, personality, and trainability. Each horse is started with a great foundation on and off the saddle. As they are brought through our program they are developed into the perfect all-around versatile horse. The end result will be a soft supple horse with all the foundations and lateral movement to be a dressage horse, the trail miles to go for overnight camping trips, the ability to jump, the discipline to work a cow, the experience to drive, the patience for all levels of riders, but most importantly, the willingness to be a lifelong friend.
They have only known a kind hand and have always had the best training and care. With all of this foundation, they are hardwired to trust. With that trust, it gives their new owners, the confidence to be that kid at heart again, and live the dream!

“As a novice rider, age 62, no one would take me as a student. All of that changed when I had the great fortune to be referred to Ed and Dana. From the first conversation with Ed, there was no rush. He answered all my questions and helped me get ready for my first lesson. I was ecstatic. I started lessons with Dana. She was kind, and gentle, and reassuring. Her conversation and humor put me at ease instantly, and never once did she make me feel silly for embarking on this adventure at this stage of my life. I loved my lessons and secretly wished I could have my own horse, but without the knowledge, I thought it was too far outside of my wildest dreams. Then I had a conversation with Ed that changed everything, and I mean everything… my whole life was about to crack wide open. He explained about Emerald Creek’s training board and introduced me to a boarder, who had no experience 2 years prior and was right there, loving her horse and riding like a champ. That was it. I was being offered the unattainable dream. Just like that.
My adventure really began when Ed found me the perfect horse. He knew me as a rider and with his experience, expertise, and ability to understand horses, he made the match. Since then, I’ve seen him repeat this process multiple times. Buying a horse with no experience is not for the faint of heart. The learning curve is monumental. Ed and Dana have helped me learn what I need to know about horse care, grooming, and riding. Almost 2 years later, I’m still asking questions. There’s so much I don’t know. I have always been given the time and guidance to make sure my horse and I have a healthy relationship; that he is properly cared for, and that we are a successful team. Who could ask for more? But wait… there is more. Ed and Dana have cultivated a community at Emerald Creek that is caring, supportive, and friendly. So many people have helped me learn without hesitation, asked if I need help, and encouraged me in my riding skill. The whole experience is far beyond my hopes and expectations. The only reason I have been blessed with the opportunity to embark on this incredible journey is because of Ed and Dana. They truly love what they do and share their gifts openly and without hesitation! ”
“I visited Emerald Creek Farm while searching for the perfect horse for an amazing client. I had seen Milo’s fabulous sale video and immediately called and spoke with Ed. I explained what we were looking for and he reassured me that this horse could be everything we were looking for.
Ed and his wife were accommodating, warm, and professional. They gave us their full attention and I appreciated the horsemanship and effort that went into all the horses we looked at.
Milo was everything that Ed said he would be and we purchased him that day. Milo is safe, smart, and the perfect horse for his owner. He continues to be everything that we were told he would be, and we couldn’t be happier with him.
Emerald Creek Farm was a pleasure to work with!”
Owner/Trainer Fox Hollow Farm NY
“With three horse purchases among my sister, my sister-in-law and myself, we can all say we had a very positive experience from Emerald Creek Farm. The owners provided as much background information on the horses for sale as possible. They kept the horses in their care and training program to know exactly what they had before putting the horse up for sale. The Friesian Sport horse I purchased is incredible. I love that horse and ride him all the time. He was a perfect horse for me. I rode him at Emerald Creek for a year, under their training and guidance before taking him home to my farm. I am so thankful for the experience I had with them. ”
I purchased Quinn as a three year old 2 years ago sight unseen from Ed .
My sister in law and my niece had recommended Emerald Creek and Ed and their word was good enough for me .
I am so very glad they did.
Ed has wonderful talent for matching the right horse to the right owner .
Quinn is a dream horse.
He has a wonderful work ethic, he is honest and kind . Very intelligent, he rarely needs to be taught anything more then once .
He will begin showing Dressage next month as a 5 year old.
Ed transported Quinn to me from N.Y. to my farm in
Georgia with extreme care and professionalism.
I would highly recommend Ed and Emerald Creek Farm .
Eds honesty , professionalism and equine instincts are a rare find in the horse industry.
