At Arete Farm our goal is to breed and train horses that are happy, willing athletes with sound bodies and minds.

Arete means “being the best you can be,” or “reaching your highest individual potential.”   This is what we strive for at Arete Farm — nurturing and bringing out the best in each horse and each person.

For a horse to reach its full potential, it needs a slow, methodical training program combined with a kind, safe environment where it can gain its own confidence.  At Arete Farm we believe in traditional, proven training principles that are not rushed.  Only by using classical approaches to build strong, supple musculature can a horse be a happy, willing athlete that will be healthy and sound for its entire life.
