Babette Lenna is extremely excited to announce a new, permanent, winter home base for BEventing in Aiken with the purchase of Paradise Farm!
The farm was purchased by myself and a group of investors, who are truly an amazing collection of people. This new adventure of farm ownership would not have been possible without them and we are all just excited for the future of this incredible property—improvements are already underway for the winter season.
Our goal is to take this incredible 88 acre property and continue to build on the foundation created at the farm over the past 30 years. With a full cross-country course from BN to Preliminary, three competition rings, amazing riding terrain, close proximity to dirt roads to hack on, and 18 stalls with huge paddocks the farm has everything to meet all our needs and the needs of all those who will use it. While we do not plan to host a recognized event for now, we look forward to expanding the property's role as a solid resource and venue for the entire Aiken equestrian community.
BEventing will maintain a base at Essex Equestrian Center at Hi Rok Farm in Essex, MA and I will continue to teach at Rest & Be Thankful Farm in Lyman, ME, as well as other New England locations, throughout the summer season.
Stay tuned for more information as we embark on this new adventure! I am so grateful for the support and advice from so many amazing people who helped me behind the scenes—I truly learned so much from you all! Thank you to my realtor Susan Hook of Front Gate Properties, David Miller, REALTOR-Keller Williams Realty Aiken Partners, and Wyche, P.A.. And last but not least, my amazing clients, who continue to be the best horse family anyone could hope for.
