Welcome from Makendra Burns,
      I am passionate about horsemanship, riding, and teaching both horses and riders how to better their communication and skills. There is an order to learning this, it allows for faster study, calmer responses, and better retainment of ideas. Compassion and knowledge allow me to help horse and rider combinations progress quickly and solidly towards their goal. Feel free to call and set up an apointment to visit the farm and meet the horses.

`What's New?

1-20-2018- Roo competed in his first real show, 2'6 Green Hunters at Frying Pan Park. He earned a 4th & 6th but truly it was about dealing with the atmosphere and get his show legs. He's pointed to the jumpers, but starting in the quieter hunters. Plus he's quite a stunning show hunter.

Jan 6 2016- Ribbons and Lace is tied for 1st place nationally in the 2015 RPSI filly inspections. Here she is in the most recent Warmbloods Today issue. So excited about this filly's future!!

Oct 6 2015- Rubichez won the 2015 USEA FEH inagural Free Jump Championship. He impressed the judges with his smoooth, powerful canter and breezed over the jumps. This is his photo in Eventing Magazine 

August 15 2015- Lacey's newest filly Ribbons & Lace (aka Roxette) was amazing at her RPSI inspection, winning Site Champion Foal and Gold Premium with a score of 8.6!  Lacey has a huge trot but Roxette was passing her in trot that just floated across the ground. Plus Roxette is sweet, kind, and has a wonderful sense to her. Love this girl!

May 16 2015  Lacey had her baby and it's a girl! Beautiful markings, this girl is vibrant and well put together. I wouldn't change a thing about her. Labor went great, although Lacey tried to sneak out to pasture to have her baby and I caught her just before her water broke. We will name her soon.

Nov 5 2014

Faith and Juliet both got 6th place over all at the Redgate Farm Horse Show Year End Awards banquet. It was a wonderful time and the girls felt very proud. Plus they got a great goodie bag and a big ribbon!

Nov 2 2014

Rubichez competed at the USEA FEH East Coast Championships. He placed 4th in the 2yr old Colt division and was very well behaved. I will most likely be heading him towards the jumper or dressage ring in the future but the FEH program is wonderful to get the young ones out and used to the show atmosphere.

Upperville Horse Show- Leadline

Twinkles took both Juliet and Faith to Upperville leadline this June. Both girls got a coveted rainbow ribbon and had a blast. On to walk/trot classes for Faith.


April 25 2014


Juliet and Faith Burns rode in the Lead Line division at the Philomont Horse Show. Faith placed 2nd, and at Juliet's first show she placed second and third, but the lollipop was the most appreciated prize! Twinkles was a star too!

Freestyle x Nabiola Filly is Here!


Nabiola had a black filly by Freestyle at 1:40AM Friday morning! She has two hind socks, a large star, and a super sweet disposition. The labor went smoothly and Nabiola is a wonderful, attentive mother. The filly loves racing back and forth in her pasture, until she plops down for a rest with her mama standing guard. The other broodmares, who will have foals next spring, look jealous:)
