Show Hunter Training for Ponies & People
Carol Eichner has been breaking and training ponies and horses in and around northern Virginia for 25 plus years. She returned to teaching 20 odd years ago and loves every minute of it. Today Carol rides and teaches at multiple barns throughout Fairfax County and Loudoun County, Virginia, as well as across the river in western Maryland. Dedicated to providing fun and positive experiences for both horse and rider, Carol's goal is to help each individual fulfill their own personal potential.... and find the ride that makes them happy. EverReady Farm has become a supportive community for children, adults and families. It's much more fun when we help each other and root for each other...in the barn and in the show arena.

One of a kind!!!!
For Sale/Lease: Raleigh(Houda Thought) is a handsome 16.1, 2004 gelding who is a seasoned hunter and fox hunter with plenty of experience to take your rider from the 2’6” to the 3’3”. He has a record mainly in the Children/Adult Hunters. Getting Reserve or Champion almost every show, Raleigh is your HACK winner, who has the absolute BEST trot. Loves to show and go off property. He has done it all from hunters, jumpers, fox hunting, and Pony Club Rallies and Championships. Auto lead change, natural stride, and good brain, Raleigh will do whatever you ask of him. He will walk off the trailer, go right into the show ring and not bat an eye at anything. Raleigh stands for the farrier, bathing, clipping, and self-loads. Regular maintenance for good performance. Contact BJ Brown for more info.
He has the best personality with the best brain!!! I am in school and he deserves to be doing something to please his new person!! Want him to go somewhere who loves him just as much as I do!!

Reunited... Pony Finals to Junior American Field Hunter Championships... these besties do it all. Lexi and Eddyn
Five-year-old Chip and his 13 year-old rider just qualified for Junior North American Field Hunter Championships! Couldn’t be more proud. He’s looking for his own person still and his resume just keeps getting better. Fun, safe and capable... not to mention sweet and adorable! Great for small adult of child.
A bittersweet , grand finale...Schmubs and Eddyn at Zone 3 Finals. Wish these kids would never grow up sometimes. What a joy it’s been to watch this team shine.
The original, one and only EverReady has made it out west to join Caitlin in Great Falls, Montana. The Brookledge drivers took such good care of our boy and even came and said good bye to him. They were impressed with how friendly and chatty he was. Ready is already settling in, munching hay and visiting the new neighbors. ❤️
Year-end Sandstone Show. Thank you Lucy and Paul, Valerie and White Apron caterers ...everyone who makes this show series so much fun! So proud of all the growth and progress all these riders have made. Special thanks to my wonderful parents for all the love and support!
Big Bad Bunny and Aubrey Local Ponies at Middleburg Classic
Good morning from Upperville. Enjoying the lovely chilly air.
We had a good school in preparation for this weeks show — the mares however were unimpressed
“Best China,” 5 yr, Welsh/Qtr X, g. Top-of-the-line large by Longacre Pierpoint. “Chip” is a big-bodied, personable young man. He was started last summer at 4 and had three months of training. He returned to professional training in July and has proved a quick learner and a natural in the hunt field. Chip has been out this season with both the Loudoun Fairfax and Loudoun Hunts. He has roaded with hounds and is non-pulsed when the hounds are under foot or popping out of the corn. He’s ok with horses close behind or in front. He crosses water, happily jumps logs and is figuring out how to rate himself in the field. A comfortable mount for a small adult or a child rider, Chip is green, but kind and very happy in his job. He hunted in a snaffle with no prep. He is currently barefoot. He has unlimited potential and will cross over to the show ring as well with his lovely face and solid jump. Priced at $8750. PM Carol Eichner or call at 301-351- 4285. Located in Leesburg at Van Vixen Farm. Video in comments
First time back at Elmington in a long time and it was a perfect day. First time doing 2 ft courses for James. First show ever for 5 yr old MP Harbor Point (Perry/Pierre). First time in Pony Pleasure for Irelyn Big Bad Bunny and Noni’s first visit to Elmington ever. Beautiful weather and great fun hanging out highlighted by great rides and ponies
Happy to have Poundcake join our team.
Back home and back to reality! Eddyn is putting the spit and polish on the barn. Sweeping out the crevices and
cleaning the wash stall. It’s good to home.
This week has been a blessing. The Gochman Grant and USHJA Foundation gave three aspiring riders the leg up they needed to reach an aspirational dream ... getting to compete at Pony Finals. Every detail taken care of. From the opportunity to train with exceptional professionals to the extravaganza of gifts, this will be an experience they will always treasure. The Gochman family , R.L. Jacobs, Robin Greenwood, Kate Cattani, Ella and Brooks Doer, Sydney thank you for the opportunity and your constant support. And best gift of all? Wonderful new friends- Daphrie, Lexi and Eliza. Tracy and Sophia. Eddyn and I so loved sharing this wonderful experience together.
Eddyn and With Strawberries and Cream. 31st out of 156 over fences!
She did it! Put in a very solid course in the Walnut Ring! We are thrilled!
Waiting on the ramp
Lined up and waiting for the model. Look for them in section 10!
Candy land for the golf cart parade! Fun for all!
The generosity of the Goochman grant knows no bounds. Best of all, two new friends.
Highlight of our tour of the 800-acre Spy Coast Farm? Baby nap time.
Pony Finals is busy and filled with friends
The journey begins. Sophie, Lexi and Eddyn just arrived at Pony Finals
Saturday’s show at Morven Park was very hot - but oh so fun. I was so proud of each and every one of my riders. Stellar rides and mistakes to learn from. Each rider helping the other let go of the frustration and smile at success. Lann was back in the show ring with Casey and Wynona - now an adult! Aubrey said hello to tall boots. Pauline gave so much support plus invaluable trailering help. Irelyn and D framed their trot to perfection. Madison is becoming a leadline star. Alexis managed those tough turns brilliantly. Katie and Bella pinned in the huge opening class among the adults and pros. Stephanie and River were quite successful in their first outing. Noni was a snot but Maybelle and Eddyn were stellar as usual. Ava and GQ were stylish as ever. Thanks Heather for keeping me laughing! To all my great parents...I am so lucky!
Five-year-old Chip cantered through the field today on a loopy rein...all by himself. This boy has the most exceptional demeanor. He’s a snuggly bunny and is going to make a lucky person a wonderful partner. I couldn’t be more impressed with this charmer.
