Cloverleaf Equine Center is located at O’Shaughnessy Farm in Clifton, Virginia. It is located in an area of Clifton known as Cloverleaf Farm Estates, and our name continues to honor that heritage.
The purchase of the farm in 2012 was made possible by many generous donors, including lead donor, the O’Shaughnessy Hurst Memorial Foundation.
The Jean Edelman Indoor Riding Arena
The Jean Edelman Indoor Riding Arena opened in August 2021, the culmination of years of planning and fundraising as part of our three-phased Build to Thrive capital campaign.
Phase one included the construction of the Founders Ring,a new, lit, outdoor riding arena, extensive foundation and infrastructure work, expanded parking, and an accessible playground in memory of Kristen Cubbage.
17,000 square feet of indoor riding space
Clients and staff can enjoy indoor space for lessons and programs.
Harbitter Learning Center
The learning center allows for trainings and meetings, a client observation area offering comfortable space for family members, and restrooms—a volunteer and client favorite after 40+ years of port-a-potties!
Coming Soon: Phase Three
The third and final phase will include the construction of a 20-stall center aisle barn. Initial planning for this phase will begin in Summer 2022, with construction to begin upon completion of successful fundraising. Learn about what’s coming, and support it through our Capital Campaign.
Thank you to our donors and program leaders for making this possible.
Tremendous thanks go to Jean and Ric Edelman for their extraordinary vision and generosity in launching this project and to the volunteer building committee, led by John Tuthill, and then Gary Cubbage, for their hours of work.
