Based in Delray Beach, Florida, Carriage Hill Farms was founded in 1982 by head trainer Jane Fennessy who built her brand and training program on the principle of ethics, passion and the belief that there is a much greater lesson to be learned from the equestrian sport than how to win. Fennessy’s storied history in the industry has led her from Michigan to Florida, where she has proven her dedication to the sport and produced multiple champion horses and riders. With a long list of accolades to the Carriage Hill name, the top-notch show barn provides a variety of services from sales and boarding to international competitions and lessons for a variety of riders from beginners to seasoned athletes.

Carriage Hill Farms consists of a strong team of professionals that are dedicated to the care and education of every horse and rider. Their eight instructors work hard to teach both children and adults the fundamentals of horsemanship and riding, while also offering customized training programs for horses ranging in level and ability. The dedicated riding team at CHF prides itself on treating each horse as if they were their own to improve their skills and bring them to the next level.

As a part of their established lesson program, Carriage Hill is home to three teams that provide a platform for students of all levels to compete, regardless of horse ownership. The Carriage Hill Farms Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) teams cater to both middle school and high school students. Carriage Hill is also home to the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Equestrian team, an Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) team that competes against colleges and universities across the nation.
Carriage Hill Farms also offers a variety of exceptional sales horses that have the temperament and ability to create successful and long-lasting partnerships. From equitation superstars and scopey jumpers to horses that would make a great first partner, Carriage Hill Farms has an unbeatable selection of quality horses for sale and lease.

Fennessy is heading into the next decade eager to narrow Carriage Hill’s focus on their already successful multi-faceted business, including training, competition and sales. The farm’s current roster of students includes champions who are nationally top-ranked and compete at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, Washington International Horse Show, National Horse Show, Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), Great Lakes Equestrian Festival and around the world at multiple stops of the Longines Global Champions Tour.
“After many years of influencing equestrian careers from the first pony ride to the international ring, I feel my greatest accomplishments are the many generations of students who have developed into happy, productive and caring adults due to the lessons they learned at the barn,” shared Fennessy. “The opportunity to work with Phelps Media Group is an exciting one for the team at Carriage Hill and I strongly believe it will take our business to the next level!”
