Started in 2014
In 2013 the Leahy’s purchased Foothills Farm in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Western Oregon where they currently live with their three children. The Willamette Coast Ride was started in 2014. Justin and Lindley maintain a herd of around 15 riding horses, an Irish stallion, a band of nice breeding mares, (many with riding and competition records as well) and now groups of their yearlings and weanlings – check out our Horses page for a list of what we are offering. These horses are raised in large fields in groups to grow naturally and healthily, for well adjusted horses, handled regularly from birth. We feel grateful to make our home and horse ranch in such a gorgeous part of the country.
The Leahy’s in Oregon pride themselves on having hand selected and trained a fine selection of crossbred and warmblood horses. These horses have good conformation, good hooves and easy to work with temperaments. Our herd of horses live in large, natural fields, they cross creeks, go thru woods, grass terrain, clay terrain, jump ditches and generally live a wonderful lifestyle but one that also helps build both ability and confidence for the trail as well as many other riding sports that they may have a future career in.
