Ride Light Relocates to Clearview Farm

Arnold Warmels and The Ride Light Equestrian Team announce their move to Clearview Farm, Shelbyville, TN effective October 1, 2006.  Warmels & Team made this decision based upon the philosophy shared with Clearview Farm owner Marie Lloyd and staff.  Their mission is to promote the versatility of all breeds while offering a cross-training environment that welcomes all breeds and disciplines.

One of the focus features for this facility will be the representation given to the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.  “We are out to promote the positive aspects of the versatility of the Tennessee Walking Horse,” says Lisa Murray, Event Coordinator of the Ride Light Team.  “I have been a long time supporter, exhibitor, and breeder of the Tennessee Walking Horse.  The Tennessee Walker is the most gentle, willing, smart, and hard-working breed and should be exalted as that.”

Murray currently owns the 2006 TWH Over Fences World Champion, Repeat The Beat, who leaped his way to both the Adult & Youth title at Miller Coliseum in July 2006. 

Arnold Warmels, Resident Trainer of Clearview Farm, relocated to the U.S. from The Netherlands and now uses his cross training knowledge to make a well-rounded, versatile horse, no matter the breed or choice of discipline.

Clearview Farm is located at 2291 Hwy 231, South in Shelbyville, TN and boasts 40 - 14 x 14 Imperial Monarch stalls, a Monarch, automated, covered horse walker, a 150 x 300 indoor arena in addition to an all-weather surface floodlit outdoor arena measuring 125 x 220.  Both arenas are available for cross training purposes.  Clearview also offers a complete trail obstacle course and a stadium course will be available with future plans for cross- country jumps.

At Clearview Farm, a nutritionist prepares an individualized premiere feeding program for each horse with BUCKEYE Nutrition.  Training, boarding, and riding lessons are all offered.

In addition to a state-of-the-art horse facility, Clearview Farm also hosts a lovely bed and breakfast.  A variety of clinics and seminars will be hosted monthly at the farm.  For those not particularly interested in equestrian activities, a nearby pond offers fishing and canoeing. Youth programs are welcomed and encouraged.
