“They go above and beyond and treat your horse like their own”
Not only does West Wind provide amazing care catered to each individual horse, but the facility is beautiful too. Having had horses for 15+ years, this by far is my favorite barn I’ve ever been at. They go above and beyond and treat your horse like their own.

"The management is responsive to reasonable requests and genuinely cares about the horses"
This farm is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone in the Lexington area. The management is responsive to reasonable requests and genuinely cares about the horses. The care is top-of-the-line, and I feel comfortable leaving my mare here, knowing that any issue, from a pulled shoe to a slight change in behavior, will not go unnoticed.

"As an equine professional, my horses' care is of the utmost importance to me. The quality of care my horses were provided when boarded at West Wind Stables was exceptional. The barn staff were observant and did an excellent job of maintaining an open communication with me about any ailments or concerns regarding my horses."

“Jen has a beautiful ability to guide riders to better connect with their horses..”
Jen has been instrumental in helping me reach one goal after another in my riding. As a trainer, she instills confidence. Moreover, Jen has a beautiful ability to guide riders to better connect with their horses, such as by developing exercises that take into account aspects unique to each human-equine partnership. She is a stellar horsewoman.

“..not only teaches riding technique but also instills the valuable skill of self assessment..”
Jen Taylor’s thoughtful instruction has made a world of difference in my daughter’s horsemanship. She has calmly and patiently instructed my ten year old for the past two years. I have witnessed vastly improved skills and immensely boosted confidence in her due to Jen’s quiet steady guidance. Jen not only teaches riding technique but also instills the valuable skill of self assessment. My daughter looks forward to any time she gets to spend at Westwind Farm with “Miss Jen” who treats her with respect as a young rider not as a child. With Jen’s encouragement and coaching, my daughter even participated in her first three hunter jumper shows this year (a dream of hers since she first fell in love with horses at age four). Our family cannot thank Jen enough for the positive impact she is making in our horse-loving girl’s life.
