I really need to express my opinion about baymar farms and how they treated my horse and I. In 2013 I started working for the Smiths I was badly in need of a job and I always had a love for horses I also happen to buy my horse there years back think that they changed I went for a job. I started work from monday to Saturday telling Ellie I Want sunday to go to church at frist she was all for it but when they had no borders at the time she made a deal with me saying that I could pay 450 a moth and work the rest. I soon was working Monday to Sunday from 730am to 730pm and god for bid jim saw me sit down. I also was screamed at for my clippings job when i told them I had never done it before and the clipers where over 20years old. I was forced to hold a horse as the owner tied the horses bit to it girth and told me to leave him in there for an hour poor john rocket I cried for and hour then there was a filly who was a year old and she was very excited about food and instead of be patcient the I saw the owner start beating her and threw her bucket at her. I was going to die when I saw this. And when I was teaching even when my students were advancing they were not allowed to use the fit horse because the show students needed them but on Saturday they could work from 8 am to 2pm without a brake. I was over book every weekend by her and one time 17 new people showed up for one lesson and I had no help plus two other trainer were jumping the students and they said jim told us to come in here because he is setting up for a show.
I got trampled by students and the owners shown no concern for my safety when I worked camp and she one time had me teach four 3year old two 7year olds and one 8 year old in an all day summer camp when the fliyer only said age 7 and up I had panic attacks all the time and was yelled at every 5 minutes. And as well as made fun of for my spelling and math by ellie she hurt my self esteam. If you go to baymar keep your eyes and ears open.

Baymar is a commercialized barn. From the show exterior, to the snotty people. Jim and Ellie are really only in this for the exposure. There are 3 amounts you can pay at Baymar. $700, $750, or $875. What they don't tell you up front, is that you pay the smaller two amounts, you can't use the hot/cold wash stall, don't have a heated barn, and will never get individual attention. Unless you show your horse constantly, win ribbons, and always take lessons.. your horse is nothing to them. Mexicans clean your stall.. and have the WORST way of bringing them to and from the field. They put up string, and heard the horses through. Then when horses escape, the men just walk around like it's no big deal. They've broken halters, and leadlines go missing. The school horses are over worked, under groomed, and just miserable. You want supplements, blanketing, or help clipping? Pay up. They will nickle and dime every tiny thing. Boarders can't ride in the same ring as group lessons.. even if it's raining or freezing. They just tell you to ride outside.. unless it's Jim or Ellie teaching a show horse.

Don't dare by a horse from these people, they will take your money and not work with you if the horse is not working out. Sold me a horse suppose to be safe for children and I almost got killed.. If a barn will not put sound and sane on bill of sale run like the wind. The owners of this place could care less about you or your money. Go somewhere else.

The most terrible farm in Monmouth County. Abusive, horrible people who destroy horses (boarders, lesson horses, and even outside horses!). By outside horses, I mean ones that come for their joke "shows". They won't let you walk out your horse after a class, and all the classes are rigged. Not to mention the horses they send to Camelot after they have worked for years! And then they lie about it! You can't say that your VERY recognizable appy (Breeze) is just a similar horse. Unbelievable.

I went to several camps there years ago, and I had minor HEAT STROKE. They refused to let me call my mother (I was eight), tried to force me on one of their nasty horses, yelled at me, and then gave me Dr. Pepper when I was throwing up! They were lucky no charges were pressed on them, and I have heard similar stories.

All in all - Don't even think of going there!

First of all I would just like to point out to everyone considering Baymar that the majority of these reviews are good. Elle and the other managers of Baymar Farms are very polite, inspiring instructors. This farm has over twenty lessons horses that are all well fed, healthy, and trained. Tey also have many privately owned horses and stalls you can rent to keep your horse. During the summer, Baymar has many different week of camp that are reasonablty price but totally worth it. Elle and the other instructors make sure to put your child in a well sized group where everyone is on the same level. They have beginners, intermediate, and advanced. Each group gets two times to ride in the day(6 hour camp a day) and the other half they are learning to groom and take care of the horses. If your child is a beginner rider I would recommend they take a week of this camp. You learn all the basics and By the time the week is over you have learned so much about riding, taking care of, and types of horses! I definetly recommend this farm

**Personally, Caroline is my favorite instructor.

I dont know why all you losers out there dont love baymar farms. first of all why would ellie and jim abuse horses that they love and respect. i know for a fact that baymar horses are some of the best cared for horses out there. if anything they try to help us improve our riding. the horses there are most sweetest well behaved horses in the universe and they would not let people buy them unless they were going to be sold to good owners. so all of you people who don't know what your talking about should shut your face holes !! I know for a fact that the people at baymar try their very best to know every single horse at the barn. they watch out for the horses who are still learning, and they match horses and riders based on personality and skill. So you jerks need to shut your faces about the best place on earth. -amelia and josie

I believe Baymar should of stayed away from the show world. I do agree that Jim and Ellie are not very good owners but i believe Luann should have been given more to do on the farm. I have been riding for at least 8 years and the whole time with Luann. She is a fantastic instructor to have and treats the horses with care and respect. I do Believe that Jim can be abusive and they should stick away from this great looking new show barn and look towards the way it used to be. I think that as long as Luann baymar will survive. After that Baymar will Fall.

I don't know what you people are talking about. Ellie and Jim always treat all of the horses with respect and care for them. I highly recommend Baymar Farms and don't listen to all of the liars.

Not only are the school horses not safe from the neglect of Jim and Ellie but neither are the horses boarded there. If there is snow on the ground the horses are not allowed out. This winter it has snowed almost every week and the horses are only allowed out in "cycles", because Baymar has three different herds to let out but only decide to use one of their many fields. Therefore some horses only go outside once a week if they are lucky. Jim refuses to let out one heard in his two outdoor arenas because he does not want the horses to eat the sprinklers off the fence. All he cares about is how nice the facilities look and not for the well being of the horses. Horses need to be outside because it makes it very dangerous to the riders to ride a horse who has not been out of their stalls for weeks and even days. Horses that are confined to a stall for days/weeks without being outside can develop leg problems and become stocked up. They are horses not porcelain dolls, they are strong animals they can handle a little snow. If you want your horse to go outside in private turnout you have to pay an additional 50 dollar fee, but most of the time your horse is forgotten to be turned out. Therefore, you waste an extra 50 dollars a month for your horse to be outside and they aren't being turned out, but sitting in their stalls. They sit in their stalls all day without the adequate amount of hay to sustain their hunger all day in their stalls. If you even dare to take an extra flake of hay Jim becomes furious. Jim and Ellie will cut back on your horses grain/hay and not even notify you that they are doing so. Not only do they not feed your horse adequately they don't clean the stalls adequately. If a horse is confined all day and ALL weekend in their stalls manure and urine is going to pile up in their stalls more than if the horses were outside. The stalls do not get cleaned on sunday so your horse lays down and stands in it's own manure and urine all day. If your horse needs supplements and medicine you also have to pay another additional fee (on top of it if you'd like your horse privately turned out). Most of the time they forget to give your horse their supplements and medicine. Then during the spring/fall where it's hot one day and cold the next you have to pay another additional fee to take your horse's blanket on and off. Your horse can be sweating it's brains off or freezing to death and they'd just walk past your horses stall as if nothing was wrong. They don't do routinely checks to make sure all of their boarded horses are not colicing, sick, or acquired an injury. I know a few boarders horses who have died at Baymar because no one notified the owners that their horse was colicing. Without treatment or having anyone to care for the sick horse it died. If the owner was informed the horse would still be alive till this day. Jim nor Ellie inform the boarders if their horse is injured or sick, the only way you find out if your horse is sick is if one of the other boarders notice something is wrong with your horse. Baymar is lucky that they have a great set of boarders who try to keep guard of each others horses, but Jim and Ellie are poor excuses for horse care takers.

I decided to remove my review, as I realize that baymar won't change anything as long as unsuspecting people keep pumping money into it.
Let your eyes and ears decide. Don't be deceived as I was.
Now I know the sad truth...

Jim and Ellie should just forfeit all rights of their barn to Louann. When Louann had more of a say in the farm it was an amazing place. All their school horses were in much better shape. Jim is extremely rude to all of the kids there, screaming in their face and being a down right jerk to them! If I ever caught him talking to my kid like that I would throw a fit. Don't even get me started on Ellie who is the fakest money hog there is. She's nice to your face but once you turn your back she is talking all sorts of garbage about you and your child. These 40 something year old adults act like little kids. They can't even be nice to their horses who bust their butts bringing in all their money or nice to their customers who give them all this money for them. They should learn to run a business and be a little nicer.

Everything Insider B said is true about Baymar Farms. They send the horses that have worked their asses off for years to slaughter when they they have no use for them anymore. They abuse all of their school horses from being over worked. All of them have back problems or are lame. Out of the 20 something school horses they have only 6 of them are safe enough for children to actually ride. When you pay for a lesson you are actually not paying for your child to learn how to ride, but for your child to train the horse. They are awful business people and are quite rude to their customers. They are nice to you initially in order to get your money, but it is all an act. Jim and Ellie have the mentality of teenagers, constantly talking bad about everyone at their farm and often make fun of the children who ride there. Take your children else where. There are plenty of barns that have better kept school horses, facilities, and qualified instructors.

I have been around baymar for over 2 decades and I have seen all of the terrible things that Jim and Ellie have done to all of their horses and customers. All of their school horses have some kind of leg problems and are continued to work and jump despite their injuries. They bute most of their school horses so they appear sound so they can continue to work instead of letting them properly heal from any injury they acquired. When the horse has served them years of work and can't physically work anymore because of age/injury or if the horse isn't making Jim and Ellie enough money, they send the horses to the Camelot Auction to await their death at slaughter. Often the horse (boarded and school) are forgotten to be fed or not fed properly based on the amount of work they do. The horses water buckets are never cleaned and often feces and dead birds are left there for days without being cleaned out or dumped. If the horse defecates in it's feed bucket they don't dump the bucket but continue to throw grain on top of it, which the horse will not eat. The horses are fed a poor quality of hay. The horse's stalls are not cleaned properly and most of the horses have fungal foot diseases because they stand in their own urine and feces all day. The base of their stalls are DIRT so all of their urine and feces remain in their stall. The school horses in the summer get ridden up to 4-6 hours a DAY in 100 degree weather, without the proper food, rest, or water. The school horses are forced to wear ill fitting saddles and tack that cause their backs to become extremely sore, and it pains them to be ridden/tacked up. An elderly horse who had a tumor in his throat and couldn't breathe was forced to work these long hours as he'd cough and weeze the entire time without being able to catch his breathe. Only did they put the poor horse to sleep after camp was over because they did not care about his well being, but just to finish working camp. Also, many times the horses are often forced to work even when they lose their shoes which causes them to become lame. Jim and Ellie are trying to turn their western pleasure barn into a hunter jumper farm, which is a complete joke. Jim and Ellie try to claim they have knowledge on the hunter jumper aspect of horseback riding but they don't. Ellie can barely make it over a cross-rail without falling off, and Jim can't train a horse unless he is beating it senselessly into submission. He's beaten horses in the head with bats to lower their headset, ripped their mouths so badly they bled, and spurred their stomachs so bad that their sides bled and are scarred. Not only do they not care for their horses they also do not care about their customers. Jim and Ellie talk badly about their customers and their horses to others, and often try to put their customers down. Telling them their horse is not good enough to show or jump, but to buy a $20,000 show horse.
They don't love their horses, they just love the money they make off them.

When the horse has served them years of work and can't physically work anymore because of age/injury or if the horse isn't making Jim and Ellie enough money, they send the horses to the Camelot Auction to await their death at slaughter. Often the horse (boarded and school) are forgotten to be fed or not fed properly based on the amount of work they do. The horses water buckets are never cleaned and often feces and dead birds are left there for days without being cleaned out or dumped. If the horse defecates in it's feed bucket they don't dump the bucket but continue to throw grain on top of it, which the horse will not eat. The horses are fed a poor quality of hay. The horse's stalls are not cleaned properly and most of the horses have fungal foot diseases because they stand in their own urine and feces all day. The base of their stalls are DIRT so all of their urine and feces remain in their stall. The school horses in the summer get ridden up to 4-6 hours a DAY in 100 degree weather, without the proper food, rest, or water. The school horses are forced to wear ill fitting saddles and tack that cause their backs to become extremely sore, and it pains them to be ridden/tacked up. An elderly horse who had a tumor in his throat and couldn't breathe was forced to work these long hours as he'd cough and weeze the entire time without being able to catch his breathe. Only did they put the poor horse to sleep after camp was over because they did not care about his well being, but just to finish working camp. Also, many times the horses are often forced to work even when they lose their shoes which causes them to become lame. Jim and Ellie are trying to turn their western pleasure barn into a hunter jumper farm, which is a complete joke. Jim and Ellie try to claim they have knowledge on the hunter jumper aspect of horseback riding but they don't. Ellie can barely make it over a cross-rail without falling off, and Jim can't train a horse unless he is beating it senselessly into submission. He's beaten horses in the head with bats to lower their headset, ripped their mouths so badly they bled, and spurred their stomachs so bad that their sides bled and are scarred. Not only do they not care for their horses they also do not care about their customers. Jim and Ellie talk badly about their customers and their horses to others, and often try to put their customers down. Telling them their horse is not good enough to show or jump, but to buy a $20,000 show horse.
They don't love their horses, they just love the money they make off them.

My 15 yr old daughter had her first riding lesson today. You have the option of having a group lesson or private lesson. We decided on the private lesson to start. It was 30 minutes long and she was assigned an instructor by the name of Candice. Her horse's name was Maria. The farm is very big and pretty. Due to the rain, she had her lesson in the indoor arena where there is an area for the parents to sit and watch the lesson. I found the instructor to be friendly and professional. The horse was beautiful and calm. It was the perfect horse for her first lesson. The farm is a bit far away from us but it's worth the trip. I highly recommend it.

good place to learn basics before moving on. prices are fair. some trainers are good. nice grounds. some of the horses for sale are good first horses, too.

this is mostly a western barn. traditional old western values in many cases

I have no idea what so ever what any of the bottom comments are saying! The stalls are clean 6 days a week and they go out 5 days a week. The horses are very sound and not very spooky at all. Baymar recently built and bought new jumps and renovated the farm grounds! I board my horse there and he has never gotten sick or hurt. Water buckets always being refilled and if there ever was a problem with the fences in the field the owners jump right on it for the safety of the horses! The manager and owner are carefully monitoring the horses everyday.
If you don't own a horse you have a wide selection of lesson horses to choose from! They have ponies and horses for everyone, plus birthday parties! Baymar farms is the greatest place to spend time with your child or your horse and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!

I have been riding at Baymar Farms for a few years and I just want it to be clear that lots of the bad descriptions below are completely false. It is one of the cleanest barns I have been to and the staff is friendly. They have a great summer program as well as lessons during the week. Check our their website to see for your self to see that Baymar Farms is a great place.

My horses have been boarded at many facility's and this one is by far the most resonably priced for the quality of care and feed you can get in all of South N.J. Manicured turnouts, and lots of riding room. As for somone elses comments about not being turned out in the rain, I think that is wonderful because it is very easy for a horse to slip while running in the wet grass, and it shouldnt be a problem for a responsable horse owner to make sure they go visit their horse during bad weather. Baymar is open until at least 9 at night for riding or just let your horse out in the huge indoor. My kids have learned so much since riding here I would recommend anyone to check it out.
