Welcome to Inner Circle Farm
Inner Circle Farm opened its doors in October of 2000, and represents a dream come true for Laura Parker and her original group of clients. ICF is a well-balanced combination of privacy on a uniquely beautiful 54-acre property with a complete full-service equine training facility. The professional and supportive staff, and only 15 stalls, gives us the ability to offer individualized attention for each rider and horse combination.
Philosophically, ICF is dedicated to furthering the link between people and horses thorough kindness, compassion and education. Dressage means ‘training’ and training is directly related to learning for horse and rider of any caliber. We approach every horse at ICF with love and understanding while believing in discipline and attentiveness from the horse for safety and advancement.
Many of the horses who have found their way to Inner Circle Farm have been transformed through our physical/holistic rehabilitative program in handling, training and nutritional balancing. At our farm, whether it is an FEI horse or a youngster learning balance prior to jumping , training is a product of patience and understanding of the physicality of the horse. Success in the show ring, if that is where the client and/or horse are headed, tends to progress further and more consistently under these conditions.

“Laura Parker’s vision is to share her wisdom and compassion to help the mind, body and spirit of horse and rider to reach their highest potential.”
– Dr. Allen Schoen
“There are fifty reasons to entrust your horse to Laura but in the end it comes down to just one: Laura is totally, unequivocally, devoted to horses whom she loves and understands in a way that is rare and undiluted by expediency, fads, posturing or ego. The horses know it and respond with a willingness to please the rider. As the owner of Micaro, it is a joy to both watch and ride at Inner Circle Farm.”
