Centrally located between the New York State Thruway and Route 20 and only 45 minutes from Syracuse's Hancock Airport, our stables are convenient for prospective clients. The well-established equine programs at Morrisville State College and Cazenovia College are both within 10 miles of our barn.
The Asher family of Canterbury Stables LLC purchased in 1999 what had been a dairy farm from the Burke family.
Graciously welcomed and supported by the communities of Cazenovia and greater Syracuse, our family proceeded to design and construct a high-end, radiant-heated barn for an August 2002 opening. In response to local demand, we officially opened our sale program in September 2006.
About Kimberley Asher
At 4 years old, Kimberley Asher had her first riding lesson under the supervision of her grandmother. She has since spent her life in the horse business, following in the footsteps of generations of riders who have ridden for enjoyment and in competition.
At 13, she kept her horse at Sag Pond Farm in Bridgehampton, Long Island. As a junior rider, she worked there as a trainer and as an assistant barn manager under the direction of Patrick Rice. She also volunteered in the local therapeutic riding program. While attending Randolph Macon Women's College in Virginia, she trained with J.T. Tallon while competing on the intercollegiate IHSA team.
Kimberley has competed on the A circuit in hunter, jumper, and equitation. During her final semester at Morrisville State College, she was hired as an adjunct professor. She also rode on the intercollegiate team prior to graduating in 2002 with a Bachelor of Technology degree in equine studies.
Since Canterbury opened for business in August 2002, she has developed a strong lesson program
for riders of all ages and levels. She has also collected and trained an outstanding group of lesson horses and ponies for client use.Now she will broaden by talents training her own dressage horses, competing at shows and teaching students who are developing there dressage skills.
The consistent daily care and maintenance of the horses, facility, and equipment would not be possible without the professional full-time staff members, who have personal horse experience, many enjoy riding in their free time. We also apperciate our part-time student staff who offer extra cheerful support.
