Classicala farm-winter


At the ripe young age of 8, A K Burkhart began riding lessons under the tutelage of a school teacher in the summer of 1960…mount of choice? The Arabian horse. Syracuse, New York was then as it is now the snowiest city in the United States and indoor riding facilities were far and few between so summer lessons were about it for most. Her family moved near Toledo, Ohio and wanting to stem the tide of boy craziness, her parents bought her a beautiful Half-Arabian mare when she turned 14 and many a long days trail ride formed the unique bond between horse and rider. Lessons were now available indoors as well as outdoors. Hunter jumper, 5 gaited lessons, dressage, and western games extended the thrill of the ride for 8 years until marriage and children took over.

ArabianEven then, after a few years of marriage, lessons began again in dressage and jumping. This time on a morgan Arabian cross as well as a big palomino, and they were enjoyed as well by her daughter. Time came though to once again own her own horse as a personal refuge from the hustle and bustle of a booming accounting career. Then an offer was made to buy her firm, and she took the funds and built what is now known as Classicala Farm…… Through much trial and much work, the farm went full blast into breeding and offering for sale the best possible Arabian and Half-Arabians specializing in traditional Olympic riding styles but with a huge nod to the pretty and elegance of the Arabian horse in the forefront of all breeding decisions.
