APAHA Clinic and Seminar with four incredible trainers
Our decision to move to the Ocala area became solidified in January 2022 when we found this incredible farm, formerly known as Town and Country Farm and Lasma South. Alec and Louise Cortelis previously owned the farm, where incredible Arabians were raised and trained. Cortelis’s sold the farm in 2016 to Los Samanes Polo & Racing from Venezuela, and we purchased the farm from them on February 22, 2022. We moved 89 horses from our previous farm in Chatfield, MN, to our new home in Micanopy, Florida.
