Brass Lantern Farm


         BRASS LANTERN FARM is located at the corner of Hwy 460 and Newtown Pike (922) in Georgetown. Carrie Dahmer leases space and operates Alta Vista Equestrian Training at the farm. We are not a fancy place, but the horses all think they are at a spa! They love the level 12 X 12 stalls completely covered in 1” thick rubber mats. Additionally, the entire aisle is covered in the same rubber mats making a nice cushion and non-slip surface for horses and humans. We have a generic tack room for training horse equipment, another stall set up for tack and storage for basic boarders, a clean and efficient feed room, and separate storage for hay and larger items. We have a washer and dryer, hot and cold water in the double wash stall [outside], and a fabulous sand jumping arena. We take pride in quality care, detail in feeding, and consideration in turn-out as appropriate for each individual. We have 4 small [1/2 acre] and 5 larger [1 acre] paddocks for individual turn-out or turn-out with a pasture friend. We have a wonderful 8 acre field that remains open most of the summer for riding, and used some in the winter for turn-out of horses taking time away from work. We do not offer pasture board as all horses are brought in daily to eat, get feet and legs checked, and the chance to be out of the weather.
         We are open for riding from sun-up to sun-down Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Monday. Lessons or training rides are scheduled by appointment. Although we do not have an indoor arena we have managed for over 30 years to maintain and show quality horses without one! Brass Lantern Farm, Inc. owned by Otis Brown, Jr. relocated from Brentwood, TN to Georgetown, KY in 2005 and both Carrie and “Brownie” have taken some time away from the regular boarding and training business since then, concentrating on a few select private clients in other states and traveling to judge shows around the country. Carrie was given the opportunity to teach and act as Hunt Seat Coach for Midway College during the 2010-2011 academic year and enjoyed success in the IHSA and ANRC competitions. The Midway team earned the Championship for the Novice division at the 2011 ANRC Championship held at SCAD in Savannah, GA. They were also awarded the Champion and Reserve Champion Individual riders in the division!

        Carrie now operates her ALTA VISTA EQUESTRIAN TRAINING with board, training, and lessons for all levels; and Brownie continues to judge some of the best horse shows and act as consultant for several professionals around the Country. Please contact us for more information.
