Crossfire Farm offers instruction for both horse and rider. We are the perfect facility for sending your green or inexperienced horse to get a fresh start or tune up in their training. We have the amenities and resources to help you achieve whatever goals you set forth in riding. We offer lessons at a reasonable rate, and of utmost value. We also accept outside clients for lessons.
All horses boarded at Crossfire Farm are required to be on a vaccination and worming program. We strongly urge our boarders to use our program for these services only, and you may use your veterinarian of choice for other health related concerns. Current coggins, vaccinations, and worming records will be required.
Crossfire Farm uses Sara Snyder and Sean Losee. We highly recommend our farriers. However, boarders are free to use their farrier of choice. You will need to schedule and meet your farrier for your horse's appointments, unless other arrangements are made with staff.
Crossfire Farm is available to host clinics and events. We are primarily an eventing barn, but love to participate in all equestrian endeavors. We would love to help you organize and host your next clinic! Our clinics are open to boarders and outside clients.
We love off-the-track thoroughbreds at Crossfire Farm. We run a small sales operation for restarting and rehoming OTTBs. And sometimes we have other wonderful breeds available. Check here for current updates on sales projects and available horses for sale or lease.

Ella is Lauren's retired competition mare. Lauren owes the success of her career in eventing to Ella. Ella has many top 10 finishes at the One Star level. Most notably, a second place finish at the VAHT CCI*. Ella was admired for her beauty and prowess on XC, at every competition she attended.

Christina King, Noble Hill Farm
"We are so impressed with Lauren's riding knowledge and the intelligent training sessions she has implemented with our Thoroughbred. We have a 6yr OTTB who is moving forward so nicely in his re-training. Thanks to Lauren's experience and kind approach, she has found and filled in the gaps in his education and has him happily engaged in learning and building. We can't "Thank" her enough for the difference we've seen in our gelding since she has taken the reins! We would highly recommend Lauren!"
"Some riding instructors focus on how to make the horse perform at its best and some instructors focus almost exclusively on the rider. Lauren does a combination of both and introduces exercises that are fun for both me and my horse. The exercises give my horse something to focus on while improving his physical conditioning - its not all "drill drill drill". Lauren's focus on building skills has helped me become a more proficient rider who does not just look good but understands how my actions as a rider directly influence my horses performance. She tailors lessons to the needs of both the horse and rider. And importantly can push you to the place you weren't sure you could go. With Lauren I ride without fear of judgement or disappointment."
"It is with pleasure that I have the opportunity to praise the accomplishments of Lauren Sumner whom gave me lessons on a Morgan gelding. Tuck was talented but had sensitivity that I had difficulty managing. Because of Lauren's training, familiarity with the horse and her incredible expertise and patience, I was able to improve my equine partnership dramatically. Lauren is an amazing rider and trainer and second to none in identifying and correcting deficiencies in either horse and rider. Despite her still being young in age, it is doubtful that anyone having lessons with Lauren will not be grateful in a very short period of time."

There is nothing more rewarding than the journey with a young horse. It teaches you to look at life in a different way. To accept challenges as growth and not failures. To be inspired by tiny moments of success. It heals you...
