Poplar Place

Stables & Eventing

Margaret H. Whitfield

As next door neighbor to Poplar Place Stables, I have benefited enormously from the kindness, generosity, and expertise of those in residence, visible from my living room windows.  My young warmblood mare in her paddock there was also satisfyingly visible, from my dog walks.  I enjoy seeing riders and horses grazing on the “lawn” of my little Circle T ranch, especially now, at an ancient age, when I can only be more spectator than participant.

I am indebted in particular to Chris Bearden for his expert attention to the various shortcomings of the Circle T, from room and water supply through computer fixes and anything by way of plumbing, electricity and electronics, and his recommendations for a newcomer to this lovely rural valley.  He is always available, by phone or golf cart, no matter what the emergency, and I derive great comfort from his courteous competence.
