Poplar Place Farm is located on 188 rolling acres, just north of Columbus, Georgia in the west-central part of the state about 100 miles southwest of Atlanta.
We primarily specialize in English riding (eventing, dressage & jumping); of course, the facility is available to all equestrian disciplines.
A private boarding barn is located on the property. Contact the owner directly for availability and application to board.
The show facility is easily accessed from the main barn, but is also self-contained. The show barn has 224 stalls, each 10×12 with rubber mats. The stalls are galvanized metal construction with wood kick boards. Each stall has its own switched-light and an outlet on a separate circuit. There are 58 water hydrants conveniently located throughout the barn and a 12-stall wash rack is nearby. We offer camper hook-ups with electric and water service. Full restrooms complete with shower facilities are also located on the show grounds. Also located by the show barn is a concession stand, complete with a full-service kitchen, and an announcer tower.
Easily accessed from these buildings are three arenas with All Weather Footing. The large arena (250’x300’) can be used for 3 dressage arenas or a large show jumping area. The warm up area (140’x230’) can easily accommodate a full size dressage arena or a show jumping arena. The third arena (130’x260’) can also accommodate a full size dressage arena or also be used as a show jumping area. In addition to the three all weather arenas is a large grass showing jumping arena.
The cross-country course provides different tracks for all levels, from 12 inches to advanced. There are two water complexes (one with a running waterfall) and many other unique obstacles. We have paid particular attention to the footing and are sure that you and your horse will enjoy galloping across the course. The cross-country course designer is Morgan Rowsell. The facility is available for schooling, weather permitting, but you must text/call first to confirm availability.
Currently the farm offers recognized competitions in Eventing and Dressage. Schooling Shows and Clinics are also scheduled throughout the year.
