Touch Point Farm
Touch Point Farm is 29.5 acres of land just east of Lebanon, TN, most of which has been a cow pasture until now. We bought it as an "unimproved" property, meaning we've had to figure out how to get utilities like power and water... which has added to the adventure!
We built our home on the southwest corner (green) and the barn (red) on the northern edge. Take a look a the animation below to orient yourself with your new home for equine fun!
Christine has been designing barns in her mind (plus plenty of doodles) for more than 20 years and now that she has the opportunity to make it real, she is bringing all of her dreams, as well as her personal experiences into this design.
In order to get things off the ground we build a 10 stall pole barn with dedicated space for tack. Plus, we humans will be sleeping only 500 feet away so we're keeping a close eye on things!
In the future we're planning a larger, 18 stall barn in a U shape, designed to keep everyone in touch and maximize efficiency in our daily barn lives. In that barn we'll provide a (human) shower for a quick clean up, plus a washer and dryer that can take a bit more of a beating than yours at home so you can get your blankets and saddle pads clean.
We'll have a centralized community tack room with individual tack lockers for each stall. This space will double as a lounge and arena viewing area.
Today we've got a 100' x 150' outdoor riding arena right out the back door of the barn.
In the future we'll build an indoor arena so that weather won't be an issue. Our riders will have 12,000 square feet in the 170' x 60' arena, ready for jumping. We expect the space to be very comfortable, with floor-to-ceiling walls to keep the wind and cold out, plus large ceiling fans to keep the air moving.
Each 12' x 12' stall has a window to provide airflow and visual entertainment.
Our 20 acre, large turnout pasture provides ample room for your horse to move over varied terrain in a natural, herd like setting. For horses requiring a quieter lifestyle, we will have several private paddocks available for monthly rental.
The turn out schedule will be seasonally managed to maximize comfort for your horse.
Boarding will come in three different packages: Standard, Full, and Comfort Care.
If desired, the base packages can be personalized to include regular grooming, blanketing, or even medication management.
