The History:

This equestrian estate is a culmination of 13 years of passion and hard work on behalf of the current owners. With a love for horses they turned the property into the phenomenal facility it is today. In addition to breeding, the owners began giving lessons on the property as well as equine assisted psycho- therapy to students with mental illness.

The property is fully operational and would be well suited to be run as an equine/veterinarian facility or event center. For those seeking a slower pace it would be an excellent country home or place to spend retirement.


“I have built other horse barns, but nothing like this one,” said James Brown, the builder who constructed the facility. “There were a pile of challenges, because we really didn’t have any formal plans. I really don’t think that there is anything else around that compares to this.”

Ron Danto is a prominent horse trainer and riding instructor in Camden, South Carolina. Danto was instructing at the facility for some time. Danto said, “To have that quality of a facility and quality of competitive horses must be a plus for the Statesboro area,” Danto said. “I cannot imagine that there are many, if any, like that in your area. It is really unusual, particularly in this part of the country. The Bryans have a wonderful horse operation. That’s all there is to it.”

The Location:

  • Statesboro is the largest city and county seat of Bulloch County, Georgia
  • A college town, Statesboro is best known as the home of Georgia Southern University
  • Statesboro is home to numerous restaurants, bars, live music venues, bookstores and coffee shops that cater to its creative college town climate.
  • Nearby is Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, which is located 45 miles to the east and is served by nine commercial airlines. Statesboro is about three hours by highway from the major Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • The economy of Statesboro consists of a diverse blend of education, manufacturing, and agribusiness sectors
