Fresh warm air breezing in from the Chesapeake Bay. Acres of spacious paddocks with green, green grass to roam in after work is done. Roomy, airy stalls with high cathedral ceilings and open views stretching away over the hills. And a freshwater outdoor swimming pool to take a dip in when it gets warm. (Or any time for that matter!) Happy, happy horses. And a happy trainer, by all accounts.
