At Splendid Bay Farms, we are proud to have received the following recognition from our clients and would like to share some of their kind words with you.
"A well managed barn . . . large measure of kindness"
"I can’t say enough about the facility and care at Splendid Bay Farm. I have boarded in the greater Sarasota/Bradenton area for 25 years and have never found this level of excellence, even for twice the price. Camille attends to ALL horses in her care with love and knowledge of horse management, and only uses the best feeds and hay available. My horse can be difficult to handle at times, but has become so calm and happy in the three years that we’ve boarded that he is much more focused on his work. If you appreciate a well-managed barn with a spirit of cooperation and a large measure of kindness, then this is the place for you." ~ Carolyn Sanchez, Siesta Key, Florida
Some thoughts from our barn family present and past . . .
“After owning horses for 40 years, and boarding at more facilities throughout the US than I can remember, I feel it necessary to tell everyone within earshot of the very best stable I have ever encountered! I have had the privilege of boarding at Splendid Bay Farm for 6 years and have never been at a barn like this one. I am extremely particular on the care of my horses and the owner, Camille, takes better care of my horses than I would myself. She customizes the care of every horse and looks after each horse as if they were her own. Splendid Bay is spotless, knee deep shavings in always immaculate stalls, T & A hay shipped from Canada, grain of choice, large green pastures with 3 board fencing, well maintained huge ring, and miles of trails. All trainers are welcomed. With only 13 stalls, the barn has a family atmosphere where everyone encourages each other no matter what discipline, interest, or ability. If you want to feel like you have finally have found a forever home for both you and your horse, and never have to worry again, please come to Splendid Bay. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed!” ~ Joann Dobbins, Mooresville, North Carolina / Bradenton, Florida
"The barn has a family atmosphere . . ."
“If your horse is looking for a five star hotel with concierge services on site then you've found it at Splendid Bay Farms. Owner Camille Sarppracione gives every horse at her barn 24/7 love and care. The attention to detail for you and your horse's needs is second to none. Our horse has been injured for several months and Camille checks him out several times a day to make sure he is on the mend. The barn is kept in beautiful condition and we can have our own Ferrier and trainer come out whenever we need them. That type of arrangement is hard to come by. We highly recommend Splendid Bay Farms there is no other place that compares.” ~ Cheri/Shea Coryea, Ellenton, Florida

 “If you are passionate about your horse and the care that he or she receives then there is no better barn in Manatee or Sarasota counties than Splendid Bay Farm. Camille genuinely loves and cares for each horse as though it was her own. The barn is small enough to feel “homey” but big enough to accommodate the eclectic little barn family that has been cultivated there. Camille personalizes each horse’s care to the owner’s specification and you will never again worry when you are not on the premises. If you are looking for a barn where you will want to stay for a very long time then Splendid Bay is the perfect choice. Biscuit and I are in our seventh year here and have no plans of going anywhere any time soon.” ~ Vanessa Vogeli, Bradenton, Florida
"Camille genuinely loves and cares for each horse . . ."
“Our horse, Spirit, has made Splendid Bay Farms his home for just over three years. Spirit has lived at a few different barns and he was well taken care of. However, once we found Camille and Splendid Bay Farms that did it for us. Everything that was advertised regarding horse care is completely true . . . and then some!! Camille provides quality care to each individual horse. She feeds top of the line horse feed and the hay comes all the way from Canada. Nothing but the best at Splendid Bay Farms! Since Spirit has made Splendid Bay Farms his home, we never worry about him or his care. Camille goes over and above in her care of her horses. Her knowledge and ethics know no bounds. Whether it’s the vet or the farrier, Camille is always there tending to the horse’s Care. Splendid Bay Farms is absolutely Heaven for the horses that have made this barn their home. Camille genuinely cares about each and every horse in her care (as well as her dogs and cats!). Splendid Bay Farms has become our home away from home. The barn and grounds are beautifully kept. The other horse families are wonderful and everyone helps each other. There is no other place like Splendid Bay Farms and Spirit isn’t going anywhere because once you board at Splendid Bay Farms, there is nowhere else to go!” ~ Mr. B and Patti Benz, Sarasota, Florida

My very sensitive boy loves it there and I have no worries knowing his needs are met. I can only highly recommend Splendid Bay Farms for quality care. Looking forward to the day we move back to the area." ~ Suzanne Swearengen, Deerfield Beach, Florida
