In addition, Crossroads Farm has 4 large 240 x 120 grass turnouts for grazing, and 3 smaller turnouts, all of which are available to boarders of the facility. Owner lives on-site. We’re one of the few trainer-owned barns in Arizona. This gives us the flexibility to custom design feeding, care, and turn-out programs to cater to each horse’s needs.
• We offer 3 different outdoor pen sizes, either fully or partially covered.
• We have indoor and outdoor wash racks with hot and cold water.
• There are six tack rooms on the premises to accommodate each of our boarders.
• Rounds are made each night after closing and someone is on the property at all times to ensure the safety of the horses.
Meet Our Trainer
Rachel Jansen Jones, Owner and USHJA Certified Trainer
Coach – ASU Equestrian Team
She found that there was a need for an “A” Circuit barn in the East Valley, that catered to teaching Juniors and Amateurs all-around horsemanship, in addition to riding and showing.
“Our riders win at the State and Zone levels, but they also know how to bandage a leg, lunge their own horse, or treat a sick horse.”
Rachel was President of the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association for 2 terms, and is currently on the board of the AHJA, a member of the United States Equestrian Federation, the United States Hunter Jumper Association, and the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association. Her students and horses have captured many year-end awards with the USEF, AHJA, and USHJA. Some of the highlights include winning the Sallie B. Wheeler Yearling Hunter Breeding Championship West Coast, coming in 3rd in the International Hunter Futurity Finals in Kentucky in the under saddle, winning the International Hunter Futurity West Coast Reserve Championship, qualifying Juniors for the National Junior Hunter Championship as well as the National Pony Finals, and numerous year-end Championships in the rated Hunter/Jumper Divisions, from Baby Greens, to 2nd Year Greens, to Junior Hunters, to Junior/Amateur Jumpers.
Crossroads Farm attends about 15-20 “A” rated shows each year, from AZ, to CA, to NM, as well as numerous schooling shows, so all levels of riders can achieve their goals. The farm also hosts schooling shows, warmblood inspections, and clinics with world-famous riders and trainers each year.
Rachel is a USHJA certified trainer. She is also the coach of the ASU IHSA Equestrian Team.
