Top Hat Dressage


Hickory Flat, GA

Knowing Stein’s reputation for excellence, the owner of Top Hat Dressage contacted John interested developing a complete Dressage Training center. She was frustrated with boarding at other farms and was ready to have her own facility. An amazing horse farm nestled in the heart of Hickory Flat, Stein developed the entire facility in 2008.

In preparation, this project involved a lot of grading work in the site plan stage to optimize the pasture fields and site for the main 18-stall Olympic Gran Prix training barn. Complete with a separate farrier stall and entrance, a quarantine stall and bulk savings storage. The attached Olympic 20×60 meter indoor arena is fitted with a tapered composite liner and mirrors and a state-of-the-art sound system.

To complete the owner’s vision, Stein added pasture barns, a 3-bay hay storage building and a meticulously fitted 4-board wood fencing system. It is truly a stunning property with breathtaking views all around!
