Welcome to Courtney Hollow Farm. Home to the Shotwell family,
Ruth Crest, and Covenant Ponies.
We have lived on this farm for over 30
years, but it has been a part of Jim's family for over
100 years. Family members have lived in the county since land was given to the
Shotwell family through a land grant from the King of England hundreds of years ago. We love our farm
and can't think of anywhere nicer to live.
farm is nestled in the beautiful foothills of
the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison County Virginia. We are less than 2 hours southwest of Washington,
D.C. and a about an hour west of Fredericksburg VA and 30 minutes from Commonwealth Park the home of HITS
What we do on the farm is breed and
train quality kid safe Welsh and Welsh cross Hunter ponies.
Starting in April of 2013 we began taking in ponies for training and consignment. We have been showing and breeding
ponies for 17 plus years. If you are looking for a training situation or consignment barn we can help you out.
Our trainer Beth is a pony size rider with 15 plus years of riding and showing and training.
