"Making the most of each Thoroughbred"

Specializing in Thoroughbred Sport Horses

Sales and Training of former Thoroughbred racehorses

Our passion has been Thoroughbreds for over thirty years.


Whether you are looking for an ex-racer as a show or pleasure prospect or have found one and need retraining services, Leighton Farm is the place to come.  We have cultivated and produced prospects like Houdini, registered name, Rocky Times who currently competes in the advanced level of Eventing for rider/trainer, Katie Ruppel and Constant Star who won the North American talent search by John and Beezie Madden against open company, not OTTBs.  Star is currently being evaluated by Sharon White for 4* potential.

 With over 30 years experience with Thoroughbreds, we understand them.  Our training principles are Intelligent and effective because they are based on a thorough understanding the the ex-racer.  We use all of the training and handling they received as racehorses and build on it to transition them to show and riding horses.  There is no need to "start over".  Leighton Farm retrains over 30 ex-racers each year as they leave the track and arrive here to receive the training they require to flourish in their second careers.


Equipped with an extensive background working with Thoroughbred racehorses as a rider, trainer and owner, Kimberly Godwin Clark brings a unique understanding of the retired racehorse.  She has coupled that experience with Sport Horse development by working regularly with Jim Wofford, Elizabeth Madlener and David Loman to identify, evaluate and develop upper level prospects for multiple disciplines.

Leighton Farm offers training and sales of horses for Three Day Eventing, Hunters, Jumpers, Dressage, Competitive Trail  Riding as well as Pleasure Horses.
