Russell Ridge was a carefully selected farm. William spent several years working at different facilities that did not meet his standards for quality. Some of the farms had inadequate turn out, turnout that lacked grass or forage, or no turnout at all, rings that were too small or had poor footing, and had barns that were poorly lit or lacked space and functionality; all of which he considered to be extremely basic and important factors for a farm. He began searching for a location that had the potential to have all the amenities he was looking for. In 2004, he found it. Named for the ridge that runs along the side of where the ring now sits, Russell Ridge had it all. An enormous open field that could be split multiple times for huge turnout fields, and room on top of the ridge for a big barn and ring with an excellent view of the pastures. Back then there wasn’t any kind of driveway and the top of the ridge was an extremely uneven pine forest, but William had a vision, and he spent the next seven years bringing it to life. Russell Ridge opened its’ doors December 1, 2011, and now features all the amenities William sought to offer; a spacious 12 stall barn complete with tack room, wash rack, and plenty of cross ties, an adjacent 4 stall barn facing the ring, a huge ring with a wide variety of jumps and great footing, 7 large fields for your horse to play in and enjoy plenty of grass, and flat, manicured trails perfect for a walking or hacking trail ride.
