Barranda Ridge Equestrian
Center Searching for Support
Fairfax County recently informed us of the
need to obtain a Special Use Permit to operate our farm in a residential
neighborhood. We have been working closely with the County to ensure that we
operate legally and safely. We have now begun the lengthy and very expensive
process of obtaining our Permit which will be evaluated by the Department of
Planning and Zoning (DPZ), and the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA).
It is VERY important that the DPZ and BZA are
aware of the strong community support for our farm. So, everything you can
do as our friends will go a long way in ensuring that we can continue to
operate and serve you!
According to our County contacts, the more
letters of support we receive, the more likely the DPZ and BZA will look
upon us favorably. You can write your own letter. Please send it to us at
the farm at 10804 Henderson Road, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 so that we can
submit it along with all the others.
We are thankful that we can count on you for
your support and patronage. We look forward to continuing to serve you and
our great community!!!!!
Barranda Ridge in Fairfax Station began as a
small barn in 2003 and has now blossomed into a wonderful facility offering
a variety of services. A 10- stall barn with full service care and lovely
pastures are featured at Barranda. In addition to a boarding, Barranda has a
lesson program offering lessons Monday through Friday to all ages (even
adults!). Camps are also featured in the Summer. For more information go to
