Carlton Farms in Williamsburg VA has been locally owned and operated since 1992. The owner fell in love with the story of Secretariat in 1973 and entered into the racing business in the late 70s. After the 70s, he longed to have horses a little closer to home and decided to get back into the horse industry. Since then, our stables by the river has flourished into a wonderful and breathtaking escape.
