Equestrian Center at The Preserve

Equestrian Center at The Preserve

Preserve at Walnut Springs is a 2,000 acre development with an equestrian center located between Fredericksburg and Johnson City. Conservation and preservation are at it’s core: 1,500 acres are protected.

The Barns 101 Workshop is scheduled at the Clubhouse and will include a Field Trip Tour of the development – especially the Equestrian Center. As in November, experts in design, construction, restoration, engineering, water harvesting and ranch and equine outfitting will present for about 20 minutes each with plenty of time for questions and a round table discussion at the end of the day. Sonja will share some of the highlights of her 2011-2012 Famous Barns Tour.

The workshop is from 9 am – 5 pm and includes continental breakfast and lunch. After the workshop, consider a drive to Johnson City to see the famous Christmas lights at the Town Square and Pedernales Electric. There’s a great restaurant for some homemade brews nearby too.

Reservations required. Limited to 12 guests. $ 40/person and $ 50/couple. For an itinerary, please email me at sonja@famousbarns.com
