Only an hour north of Manhattan, Falkirk Farm sits on a prestigious gated estate nestled in the foothills of the Catskill mountains. The grounds were once known as Falkirk Psychiatric Hospital, a private sanctuary built in the 1800s for well-heeled clients with psychiatric issues. Carla and Wayne Corts built it for thier daughter Tori.
During the summer show months, the Central Valley, NY barn is leveraged as home base to Todd Minikus, Ronnie Beard and Michael Dorman. While horse showing is Falkirk's primary focus, it also is the premiere location for clinics.
The property includes a 20 stall main barn with two supplemental 6 stall barns. In addition it has an immense turnout, an over sized magnificent indoor ring, a grand prix field and miles of cross country trails.
