.

I have had 2 horses at Gayfields over the last 6 years or so. My horses have both had excellent care. My current horse is fat and happy, clean, and well fed. Cindy, Amanda, Steve, and Janice are devoted animal lovers and we never have to worry about our pets. They are brought in during very cold weather, blanketed, unblanketed, or whatever they need. In our ultra hot and humid Maryland weather, they are brought into their shady stalls to stand in front of their fans, with plenty of fresh water to drink. The fields are huge and the trails are extensive. Everyone at the barn is friendly and we share our love of horses in many ways, such as planned trail rides, a dip in the River, or dressing up for a silly Halloween Parade. Everyone looks out for everyone else's horses as well as their own. Misunderstandings take place everywhere. I myself am guilty of overreacting to something that never even took place. Whenever a group of people exist, there will be misunderstandings. I deeply regret anything I may have done that has hurt others' feelings. Communication is key, and that is often all anyone needs to do to clear up a problem. Gayfields is a place for horse lovers to entrust their beloved pets for care, feeding, and love. Cindy, Amanda, Janice,and Steve work long and hard hours to give our horses exceptional care. I stand behind them and support them in their efforts, and my 2011 Resolution is to become even more appreciative of their efforts and to let them know so. They have been there for me personally, and for that I will be eternally grateful. They are there for my horse every day. We all need to grow up and support those who are there for us and our horses. Let's all try to become kinder and gentler human beings in this world where too many people are out for themselves alone. Join me in rejoicing how blessed we are to be among caring people, our precious animals, and our friendships. Let's all bury the hatchet and show some love. Share some kindness and you'll see it come back to you twice as large. Come visit us at Gayfields and see the beauty, caring, and friendships that help us to feel like a very large, very happy family. _ Carol Jan 16, 2011

Where do I begin. I guess I should address the trash talking and the lies that some have spoken regarding this farm. First, to the person who said Janice doesn't know anything about horses, is afraid of them, etc. Plain fact, untrue, and you know it. I've rarely seen someone more loving or more caring towards a horse. I'm afraid of horses, can't be on the same side of a fence with one. Janice has brought horses over to me for me to pet. Someone afraid won't do that. Horses sense fear. Would they allow someone afraid of them to handle them the way she does without giving her a hard time?

Second, how can the fields be overcrowded? Have you seen the place? There is so much space a person can stand near one horse and barely see another the fields are so big. Run out of hay? Have you seen the hay loft? It's the entire top floor of the barn and when I was up there empty would be the opposite of what I saw.

Why does it matter what a person drives? The condition of the farm proves that a good deal of money is spent on the farm, not a car. The farm is absolute wonderful condition. Janice does a lot of manual labor on the place. She recently spent three days hand painting the fencing. She did it herself. She didn't hire someone. This is the type of person she is. Btw, her husband owns his own business. Can this be why she has a nice car? Not flashy, just nice. I think so. No one is wrong for wanting to have nice things. If it doesn't jeopardize the health and safety of others there is nothing wrong with it. This is a case of pure jealousy.

The problem here is a case of simple unwarranted hatred towards a person who doesn't deserve it nor has done anything to deserve it. This is a bashing not based on fact, but a personal attack for other reasons. I suspect the people writing the negative reviews is not only the same person, but is someone who does this to everyone they feel has made them mad at one point in their life. Someone who is jealous of a wonderful woman because she has friends while the author has none. I've seen more respectable and mature ways of voicing opinions by children, at least they dont lie. Maybe the person spreading these lies needs to seek therapy. There is more going on mentally than what is expressed here. Seek help.

It comes down to this. Go to the farm and see for yourself. Look at everything, talk to everyone. Talk to the owners. Form your own opinion. Look at the condition of the horses, the property, the facilities. I think after you do this, you'll see that the negative expressed on here is done out of pure malice and hatred, and is an attempt to hurt someone personally, not to give a legitimately review and not an ounce based on fact.

I speak from experience when I say that all businesses, whether a retail store or a boarding farm, has misunderstandings at times. I wish to speak publicly to all who down Gayfields. My horse is fat and happy and healthy. Her stall is spotless. She is brought in in bad weather, blanketed when necessary, put in front of a fan in hot weather, fly sprayed, and loved by the manager and assistant manager like she is their own. When a misunderstanding occurs, one should simply ask, not react. Please come visit us and see for yourself the excellent condition of the animals, fields, stalls, and barn. Meet the management who work so very hard for our animals. And talk to some of the boarders, including me, who will show you the beautiful things in our barn. I havae hurt people's feelings in the past through silly misunderstandings, but I will stand by Steve, Janice, Cindy, and Amanda who have all extended their hearts and understanding to me, and their love of animals to my horse.

Shirley...What are you talking about injured, colic, moldy hay? I work there...there has not been one case of colic in YEARS...injuries? However common with horses, there have been few and minor injuries here at the farm and none what so ever due to neglect of any sort. Of the few I can think of they were medical issues from previous back or leg injuries. As for the moldy hay and running out of horse "food" is completely not true. We also only feed once a day during summer and twice a day during winter months and give hay as needed, whether it be for individual attention or due to a drought, etc. ALL horses get attentative care.

Also...may I add...the farm has not had a boarder named Shirley S.

Everyone has their own ideas of what is good for their own horse and what is exceptable. It would be in the best interest of the horse if everyone would admit to the truth. Yes this is a nice place to look at. Old house on the water.,but when it all comes down to it you must ask yourself this " Do you want the best care you can give your horse?" If the answer is YES then it would be best if you went somewheres else. This is a place that thinks they know about horses but they don't several of the horses there where injuried, lost weight, colic, fed moldy hay and often they ran out of horse food. They will show you a nice place to look at but DO NOT BE BLIND, read between the lines of what is said.

I have had 2 horses here for about 5 years. Each horse was/is treated wonderfully well, and had their individual needs cared for. My current horse is fat and happy and I wouldn't consider changing to another place. It seems that a few unhappy people can make a place look really bad, and the good reviews are easily overlooked. Everyone has a problem at sometime, but can be easily resolved with good communication. Meanwhile, I am happy at Gayfields and will continue to board my horses here. Everyone is kind and friendly and everyone looks out for each other's horses. So, please look at the good reviews and ignore those of the few perpetually complaining people.

My horse and I are happy here. She's fat and happy and has lots of room to run, play, and roll. She's well fed, and any special needs are taken care of with a minumum of fuss. The people here are fun and friendly and there are always plenty of others to join in on a relaxing trail ride. Stop complaining and join us.

Pros: huge fields, great people, nice trails

I think it??s sad that people have so much time on their hands to come on here and just complain and complain when half of the reports are from people with no experience or back story of the facility. I have 2 horses there and have been there for almost a year and currently work there. About horses coming in during the summer, they try to leave that up to boarders as a personal request because everyone seems to have different views on what is best for your horses. Sadly however, instead of going straight to management or the owners, people will rather complain and gossip amongst themselves and so the issue never gets solved. When I first moved to the barn I made it clear immediately that I have a white horse (pink skin & blue eyes) who cannot be turned out during the daytime during summer months. They were happy to comply with my request and he stays in with clean sawdust, great quality hay, 2 buckets full of water and a fan on. Stall boarders have their right to use their stalls and all they have to do is ask for their horse to be brought in and it will be done. I have done so for many in inclement weather. Horses are blanketed, but again management tries to communicate well with all boarders because everyone seems to have personal opinions on how much or little their horses should be blanketed. When all stall boarders are in during inclement weather, the field boarders are all moved to one field together so that they may share the large run in shed since the new one in one of the other pastures is still being built and going through county regulations being so close to the water and also being used for horses. Rome wasn??t built in a day and when you put a building up it can??t be assumed that it is ready to be used immediately. This farm has great plans, but it all takes time and patience.

I have spoken with management recently about the change of feed for better nutritional needs and, as a worker, the horses are fed great quality feed by Triple Crown and Legends in pelleted form for ample nutrition along with any supplements that are requested to be given by the owners. We also will feed forage, rice bran, beet pulp or your own personal choice of feed to your horses, provided you purchase for your horse, if you think it is necessary.

Many facilities take It upon themselves to decide everything for you and your horse and, however, we try to have open communication with boarders on what they think is best and how their horses should be cared for and we do our best to accommodate accordingly whether it be blanketing, feed, supplements, turnout, etc.

The horses on the farm who may have been seen looking ??skinny? are the few seniors and hard keepers we have, one being a hard keeper off the track thoroughbred who is very typical of his breed but does get fed ample amounts of feed and hay and his owner is very happy, while another being a 28 year old who is, along with his owner, very happy with his care. Another horse who may appear thin, but is actually proportioned with bony hips and no matter what we feed and how much we feed this horse, he will always look that way. Vets and farriers are always called out in emergency situations if the owner cannot be reached and we always feed your horse what you request to be fed to them, no matter the difference in opinion. If we feel uncomfortable about it, we will bring it to your attention. In the end though, if something happens to your horse due to feed issues, we complied with your request to make you happy and comfortable.

As far as hay not being fed, that is untrue. We feed hay while horses are in or out and during the winter months we try to keep hay on the ground in the fields throughout the day where I know lots of places, including places I have boarded at, that have looked gorgeous, but their fields were not so green during winter and they were never thrown any hay while turned out. Every place will have its pros and cons and cannot be perfect to everyone because everyone has their different opinion of a perfect and ideal place to board their horse.

As far as the atmosphere, the owners and management do their best to keep everything peaceful and laid back. We are not a competitive facility and no matter where you go there will always be ??talk?, but everyone gets along and joins each other in rides whether it be at home or off the farm. I know several boarders with trailers who are always happy to invite people along when there??s an open spot. We also have get together parties and cookouts for holidays and general fun.

To the boarders, my name is Amanda and I care for all your horses to the best of my ability and instead of going online to complain, maybe next time consider speaking to myself or the manager of the barn and you will see a change. If you don??t speak up, something can??t be done about it. But don??t you dare say your horses have not been cared for or when I and the manager personally have worked long hours just to ensure the care of them. As for the people who rather call the owners names and laugh about it, well you can continue to be a child about it but someone??s appearance does not correlate with the care of your horse. I have always acted in a manner to do what is best and safest for each individual horse, older or younger, stall boarder or field boarder, it doesn??t matter. They all receive individual attention and I have 17 years of experience in farm and barn management, riding/competing, education, rescues and lay ups and of course an owner and boarder for over 13 years (and that is just part of my list that applies to this post) to back up my knowledge and experience.

And as a side note, April H., your are 1 of 2 boarders who have asked for a refund once decided to leave and may I just add, no matter what contract you enter if it be an apartment or boarding contract, once you pay on the 1st, you don??t get it back. That is the purpose of the contract that you signed from the beginning. Think about those things before you sign next time and bring the issue up beforehand. When you own a horse you assume all possible risk and loss involved.

I??m sorry for anyone who did have a bad experience here, but you have to understand every place will have its downfalls, no matter the price. And that is definitely something I have experienced. To everyone else, I am very happy you enjoy Gayfields Farm and what is has to offer and hope to those who didn??t have a chance to board there now, will in the future.

Thank You.

Went by to take at look at what all the fuss was about...Place looks great, I talked with some of the borders, they seemed happy maybe the negative people saw the other farm down the road, falling down fences, no grass cause everything here seems great, boards were nice. Its full now and I was trying to get in. Guess I have to wait, this looks like a keeper

Isn't it so typical of horse people to whine and backbite? Makes a person want to run the other way! Gayfields didnt work out for me. There were times when hay was needed and the horses didn't get any. Times when there was NO grass and hay was still not given. No lie about that, and you all know it!
I left on the 4th of the month and was not refunded one cent! No matter how many times I asked, my pleas were unanswered.
What differnence does it make what kind of horse is owned and boarded there, Gail W? If the business is poor, then the business is poor. I don't think you boarded there, so I don't think you can give a fair opinion . Being friends with the owner doesn't qualify you.
Not all was bad there. The fellow boarders were very welcoming. The trails are nice. And the views, spectacular. But, do your homework before moving your horse there. Ask around.

Peaceful and tranquil what a place for you and your horse, great quality hay, knowledgeable staff very helpful and concerned about you and your horse. Safety first is their motto. Stalls are large and pastures are great. Trails are available and there is always someone to ride with. Stop by any day and talk to borders, don't listen to one local x border who is writing all of the negative stuff she doesn't know anything about horses, she has never purchased a good horse yet...never will

Stop by any day and talk to borders, don't listen to one local x border who is writing all of the negative stuff she doesn't know anything about horses, she has never purchased a good horse yet...never will

this farm is all about money. Horses don't even get hay in the summer, and in the winter the worst quality cheapest hay is bought( gotta save that buck!) Beautiful to look at, a horror to board at. If you don't mind having the vet out regularly and your horse means nothing to you, take it there. Hope your checkbook is nice and fat because you are going to need it! Yes as previous posts have written it is beautiful on the water, too bad the horses dont get anything from it.

Gayfields Farm is the most wonderful place I ever ever kept a horse at. The horses have huge fields to run in, miles of trails to ride on, and the best, most attentive care they could ask for. The manager is the most caring person I've ever met. I can't be there for my hose 24/7, but I feel safe knowing she is watching out for him. The facilities are perfect and kept that way at all times. The people that board there are great people as well. Its a very great place to be for both horse and rider.

Garfield's farms is a great place to board your horse. I have found the owners, Janice and Steve , to be the most friendly and courteous proprietors in all the years i have been a horse owner. The stables are always kept in tip top shape as is the beautiful acreage surrounding them. If you want to have the best in horse boarding in the most picturesque setting in the state.. you need not look any further.

Took my son here to ride and loved it. Met the staff, owners and two Golden Retrievers and found everyone to be most friendly. They had a cookout and invited us to join them for hot dogs and hamburgers. The owner (Janice) spoke to us at great length regarding her love for horses and she is very knowledgeable. Her husband (Steve) was very friendly and encouraged us to visit by boat the next time we rode. Then he had to go to bed (I guess he gets up early). What a great place!

the most gracious owners and barn management a horse and owner could ever hope for. the fields are beautiful and the stable and barns are cleaner than one could imagine for use by what some might call -"just a horse". the owners take pride in their facility and treat their staff and "residents" with care and respect. the stabled horses are treated to cooling fans in the summer when it is hot outside. the horses also enjoy roaming amongst well manicured grassy fields to graze on. janice and steve are very friendly and considerate people and these qualities of character shine through in their facility. one could rest assure that their horse is well cared for at gayfield farms in pasadena, md.

very impressed,

What a load of melarky the previous negative comments are. Gayfield Farms is heaven on Earth for a Horse. I have been doing business with Janice and Steve for years; they are wonderful, caring horse owners and horse lovers.To say otherwise is ludicrous and slanderous.Jealous people should really keep their reviews to themselves. The fact is,Gayfield Farms is a wonderful, professionally maintained boarding facility.

do not take your horses here. owners wife is worse off than a beginner but thinks she knows everything. The owners are too cheap to buy hay for the horses and horses are there for the way they look. the owners are very unprofessional. Do not take your horse there!

I have had 2 horses at Gayfields and have been a boarder there for around 5 years. I have never had to worry about my horse's care or safety. She is given any supplements I request and everyone there looks out for everyone else's horse. The other boarders are friendly, nice, and fun, and we all have a good time together. My horse is well fed and happy, so I am also. You can't please everyone 100% of the time, but little problems are easily resolved, and this is a good place to be. I always recommend Gayfields to anyone looking for a farm, and will continue to do so. Visit us to see for yourself!

Gayfield's is a great place to keep a horse. The management is tops. I never have to worry about my horse, because I know that if anything seems out of the ordinary, the barn manager will call me to let me know. The fields are huge. The trails are so extensive that you could ride for hours. This is a very family friendly barn with a laid back relaxed atmosphere.

This is a great barn that is very laid back and relaxing. The barn manager is the best ever, and takes excellent care of all the horses. The fields are marvelous, and the barn is well maintained. The trails have been expanding, and there have been many upgrades to the barn and fields. My horse and I couldn't be happier!

This farm is a great, relaxing, and laid-back place to keep horses. The barn manager takes excellent care of all of the horses, and always calls right away if there is anything different going on with your horse. There are huge grassy fields and a fair amount of trails. The trails have been expanded and there have been many upgrades to the barn and fields. The horses are also fed well, and given hay when they need it. Horses tend to get fat at this barn, so if you want to board here, I recommmend that you ride often!

Janis the owners nasty wife is terrified of horses and doesn't even know how to ride. Yet she tells experienced people at the stable how to "lead their horses properly (LOL!)". Then she hounds you for every penny she can bleed out of you. Horrible environment. Don't believe any positive reviews because she wrote ALL of them. She uses the money to buy herself a new Mercedes. No matter what she drives everyone knows she is trailer park trash.Very sad...

This farm was wonderful until Janice Sissy arrived and decided that she knew all about horses...even tho she has zero experience with them. This woman is a maniac! She chases horses around the field and tries to tell experienced horse owners what to do. It's too funny for words. The woman doesn't even know how to ride! The farm has no hay even tho there has been no grass in the fields since May. Also, horses are put in certain fields depending on whether or not they are "attractive" just to impress people coming by in cars and boats. DO NOT take your horse here. It is the biggest joke in AA Co.!
