Paduka Run - Premier equestrian property




  • Paduka Run is the Genesee Valley’s finest private equestrian facility and country estate. Professionally and thoughtfully developed over the past 20 years, this stunning 65 acre horse property is the perfect blend of upscale casual country living and state-of-the-art equestrian amenities.


  • The Genesee Valley, located in the heart of Western New York, is a unique and idyllic area. To the north is the city of Rochester, home to World Headquarters of Xerox, Kodak, and Bosch & Lomb, the Eastman School of Music, and an international airport 35 minutes from Paduka Run. The Finger Lakes Region and its famous New York State vineyards and wineries, lies just to the east. To the south is Corning, home of the world recognized Corning Glass Works. And to the west lies Niagara Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the gateway to Canada.

    The Genesee Valley has long been recognized for its well established horse community, and each season brings a full series of equestrian events to the area – 3-day eventing horse trials, dressage shows, jumping derbies, carriage driving competitions, and the internationally acclaimed Genesee Valley fox hunt. The Genesee Valley Hunt is America’s 2nd oldest fox hunt and covers spectacular grounds throughout the season. A “live” hunt with actual foxes (as opposed to the “drag” hunts of most other hunts in this country), fox hunters from throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe make regular annual pilgrimages to hunt with the spirited GVH. In the fall of each year, it is not uncommon to view 15-20 pairs of hounds, followed by 120 or more mounted riders across the valley.

    At the very center of this pastoral and equestrian splendor sits Paduka Run. Designed and built by competitive equestrians with attention to every detail, the farm is located on Roots Tavern Road, just up the road from the GVH kennels. The property is part of the Genesee Valley Conservancy, a legal land conservancy that protects and maintains open paces in the area. Paduka Run is also host to many equestrian events throughout the year, including events and clinics organized by the Genesee Valley Riding & Driving Club, the Genesee Valley Hunt, the Genesee Valley Pony Club, and the Western New York Dressage Association.


  • The 3000+ square foot house, with its spectacular views of the Genesee Valley, is of classic post & beam construction from Timberpeg. This house has a traditional low country profile, with gabled roof and windows, wrap around porches, and cathedral ceilings inside. The interior is composed of 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a tile floored entry room with built in benches and coat racks, a finished basement, a south-facing sun room with built in spa, an open design kitchen with Corian counters, wide pine floors, and a rustic fieldstone fireplace. Attached is a 2 car garage with automatic doors and ample storage space above. A new roof of architectural shingles was added in the fall of 2011. Professional landscaping, including stone walls and paver walkways, surrounds and completes this charming home.


  • The stall barn is a horseman’s dream. This 36’ x 80’ structure houses 6 12’ x 12’ stalls; a 12’ x 24’ tack room with a sink, bathroom, and refrigerator; a wash stall with ceiling mounted eaters; a dedicated feed room, ample storage area, rubber pavers in the aisle ways, and a large loft area for hay. Other features and amenities of the stall barn include an architect-designed manager’s apartment on the upper level; hay drops from the loft to the stalls below; Nelson automatic waters in each stall; specially placed lighting in the aisle ways for effective night time vision; Dutch stall doors to the outside with custom crafted, anti-cribbing, wrought iron stall guards; and finished ceilings on the first floor.


  • Attached to the stall barn, and accessed through beautiful, large hinged doors with shatterproof window panes, is an Olympic size 20 x 60 meter indoor riding hall. This professional quality indoor arena features a 10” packed base, topped with river sand & rubber footing; natural light translucent windows on three sides and overhead the full length of the peak; full arena halogen lighting for night time indoor riding; and sliding track windows and doors around the outside of the arena for indoor/outdoor riding.


  • One of the truly special features of Paduka Run is its outdoor riding and training facilities. In addition to a 20 x 60 meter Olympic outdoor dressage arena with a judges gazebo at one end, there is a professionally designed and built cross country schooling area – complete with a water complex, multi-dimensional bank complex, ditches, covered bridge, and rish bank, as well as permanent and portable xc jumps. This schooling area was designed by U.S. Olympic event rider, John Williams, and was built by Olympic course builders Tremaine Cooper and Mark Vahue. Lucinda Green, member of the British Olympic Equestrian Team and 6 time winner at Badminton, conducts clinics at Paduka Run each fall. She has called the schooling area at Paduka Run “the finest equestrian facility of its kind in the world”.


  • Along with the house, stall barn, and indoor arena, there are several other structures in place and of value at Paduka Run. A 24’ x 60’ building - formerly called the Carriage House, now called the Woodworking Shop – is located between the house and the barn. At one time it did, in fact, house carriages and harnesses. It is now a fully equipped woodworking shop, with an additional area for equipment storage. This building has a classic cedar shake roof, central gas heat, a tiled floor, and a finished tongue & groove wood ceiling inside.

    Other outbuildings and improvements at Paduka Run include a an upland game/chicken house; a NYSDEC approved falconry mews with 2 inner chambers, 2 weathering areas, and a central tack room; 7 meticulously maintained horse paddocks with architectural quality run-in sheds; and an attractive 500,000 gallon pond that helps supply water to the farm, provides protection to migrating waterfowl, and can be viewed from the main house.
