Welcome to Mahalo Farm located near Charlottesville, VA!
Mahalo Farm is a 97 acre farm located in Earlysville, VA, 11 miles from the center of Charlottesville, VA, dedicated to the love of horses and the land. The farm is owned and operated by Patty Swygert who purchased the farm in 2000. After clearing miles of barb wire and brush and putting in riding rings, fencing, a cross country and TREC course, and water lines to create a supportive, beautiful and happy environment for her horses, she began to offer foundation horseback riding lessons to children and adults and pasture boarding for a small number of horses.
Mahalo Farm has a medium-sized riding
ring with an all-weather track, lights, jumps and barrels, an all-weather surface
round pen with lights, a full-size grass dressage arena, multiple run-in sheds, tack shed, huge barn (with 2-3 stalls
in case of need or lay-ups, hay storage and covered areas,) lovely
bottom land pastures, woods, farm trails and cross country
jumps and TREC obstacles. The farm is in a lovely rural area in Farmington Hunt country.
Trail riding for an hour, 1/2 day or all day is available right off the
farm without crossing any paved roads.
