Calendar 2024

This year we are excited to announce that Valinor South is returning to Sandy Hills Farm and has moved our operation to the new center aisle barn!  This barn includes its own private wash rack, tack room with laundry, and (best yet) private paddocks!  Sandy Hills is a premiere facility boasting a full sized sand dressage arena with mirrors stretched across one side, a complete show jumping course in a large sand arena, a derby field filled with every type of cross country jump you could ask to school (means less $$$ for outside schooling fees!), a track for galloping, plenty of fields to hack, and lots of turnout.  Check it out at  and come be a part of Valinor South!

Full Training, includes 5 sessions/week incorporating dressage, show jumping, xc schooling, lunging, conditioning, trips off property (local transportation costs in/around Aiken included), etc.   The program is designed specifically around the individual horse’s needs and is planned ahead of time between the owner and Erin.

There are lots of opportunities to compete in Aiken, from schooling shows to sanctioned events, and it’s a great way to get your horse a jump start on the season.  Full Training includes fees for riding at the actual competition and transportation to/from within the city of Aiken, but the owner is responsible for actual costs of entering.  A competition schedule will be designed for any owner wishing their horse to compete.

Experience Aiken
Custom experiences can be tailored for everyone!  If you would like to come down for a week/weekend/etc with or without your horse we can make it happen.  Contact Erin directly to design your own Aiken Adventure, and keep up to date with all the Aiken happenings on the Team Valinor Facebook page.
