Our Day Farm has 2 Locations
Our Day Farm is based in the United States, on two separate farms — one in Elgin, Illinois and the other in Wellington, Florida. During the summer, we operate out of our farm in Elgin, and during the winter, out of our farm in Wellington. We are never at both locations at the same time. This arrangement allows us to have optimal access to the highest levels of “AA” competition and gives our horses a comfortable environment year-round.
We Bring the Highest Level of Horse Care.
The staff and facilities of Our Day Farm are the epitome of the horse industry. We have a full time staff of 12 grooms, leaving each of our grooms with 3 to 4 horses to focus their care on. Our staff follows us wherever we go, and at both of our facilities we have staff which live on-grounds, allowing us to maintain 24 hours of horse supervision a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Our grooms are some of the most experienced in the business — our head groom, Marco Campos, has been with Our Day Farm for over 15 years. We pride ourselves on the longevity of our employees, it allows them to constantly build on their knowledge of, and improve their skills with horses.
Our Day Farm — Elgin, Illinois
Our Elgin farm is a gorgeous property that is surrounded on one side by forest preserve and full of luxurious amenities. Located conveniently only 40 minutes from O'Hare airport (ORD) and 15 minutes from Lamplight Equestrian Center, it is positioned perfectly to easily take part in all of the numerous "A" and "AA" shows that take place at Lamplight in the summer. Lamplight aside, the farm is only considered a home base where we spend most of our time — with our close ties to the horse transportation industry and a staff which is excruciatingly experienced in horse travel, no horse show in the world is out of our reach. Our Day Farm travels the country throughout the summer, showing at all of the most prestigious venues in the nation including: Devon, Tryon, Colorado, Kentucky, and Washington.
On our farm, all aspects of horse care are covered, which is no less than you would expect from us. The farm is complete with 12 spacious, mowed grass paddocks used for turning out every horse, every day; direct access from the farm out to 3 miles of forest preserve trails; a 50' by 175' indoor arena with dust-free, wax footing that allows for lessons and riding even on days with heavy rain; a covered outdoor summer kitchen where lunch is served every day; a grand prix field with a bank, grob, and natural jumps; an equine treadmill; and a large, watered outdoor ring with hunter and jumper show jumps. This impressive facility makes Our Day Farm in Elgin the premiere equestrian barn for all of Chicagoland.

Our Day Farm — Wellington, Florida
Wellington, Florida is acclaimed as "The Horse Capital of the World". One of the best features of our Wellington farm is that it is located in the prime of Wellington horse country, in a neighborhood directly adjacent to the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC). This gives all of our clients convenient access to all of the pre-circuit and post-circuit shows which take place there, and most importantly: to the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). This situation is also optimal for all of the horses in our care, since they can turn out, stable, train, and do therapies comfortably, at home on the farm, while showing at the PBIEC the same day — getting to the horse show is just a matter of a 5 minute walk.
Just 20 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), or 1 hour from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), our farm located in the heart of Wellington is loaded with all of the amenities you would expect in a rural location: we are equipped with an equine treadmill, 7 grass paddocks, a large, watered outdoor ring, and a top-of-the-line equine ice spa which works wonders on the hard-working legs of all of our horses. In terms of location and horse care for showing at the PBIEC, it does not get better than Our Day Farm — Wellington.
