A few minutes north of Atlanta is a rural paradise, the city of Milton. Milton has grown from historical farmland to a relatively new town incorporated in 2006 with a solid equestrian heritage.

Select farms house a dozen or more horses, while others house just a few, be assured, whatever the size, they are central to Milton and its distinct equestrian identity. Some community members own horses; others may just ride them; and there are some community members who simply enjoy living in Milton around others that understand the meaning and specialness of the equestrian lifestyle that is offered in this unique town.
