Jochen and Bianca Wittgraefe of Chuckwood Road in Mooresville have announced the groundbreaking of their new 15-acre, equestrian facility which will be called Lakeside Farms and Stables.
The Wittgraefes' who were frustrated with their current commute on I-77 to the facility they have been attending in Huntersville wanted to have something closer to home.
The 15 acre facility on Chuckwood will have an outdoor 9,500 square foot riding arena, a fully enclosed 20,744 square foot indoor riding arena, 12 stalls, a tack room, kitchen, break room and a grooming area. There’s plans for an on-site caretaker’s house to monitor the American Saddlebred horses at all times. Brooke and Quintus VanderSpuy, the owner/operators of Lenux Stables in Huntersville where the Wittgraefe children currently attend will operate Lakeside Farms and Stables in Mooresville. Both the Wittgraefe’s and the VanderSpuy’s agree that spending time around horses is very therapeutic. It not only reduces the amount of time kids’ spend on social media, it teaches them valuable life lessons of compassion and responsibility.
