Do you have a horse or pony that you would like to donate, sell or free lease to GMTRC?

We have 25 acres of lush green pasture, a modified dry lot, indoor arena and outdoor arena along with 14 12’x14’6” stalls. Our horses are turned out during the day and brought into their stalls in the evenings with hay, water and specialized feed or meds as each horse needs. We have an amazing team of barn staff consisting of an AM barn manager, evening and weekend barn assistants, and multiple volunteers who are well trained and provide diligent care to our herd. We also maintain a weekly schooling riding program to meet the fitness and mental health needs of the herd, along with consulting with various local equine professionals to ensure we are continually learning under saddle and on the ground.  Our horses enjoy the peaceful Lancaster County life here at Greystone Manor TRC!

Below are some details and requirements along with photos of our facility and grounds. Please review those details and then fill out the Equine Initial Contact Form to provide us with more information about your equine. Submit it to the email address below and one of our team members will contact you!
