About Verida Farm

Verida Farm is a beautiful and peaceful facility dedicated to letting horses be horses.

Here they will live and/or recuperate in a caring and quiet environment.

There are open pastures for those who wish to have their horses live out full time as well as twelve 12' x 12' stalls for those who wish to have their horses stalled part of the day and for the lay-ups. Each stall has a solid grill front with a large open window for your horse's comfort, visibility and ventilation. There are also two Autumn at Verida Farmmedical paddocks for the recuperating equine.

Verida Farm’s 24 hour on-site, conscientious and well-motivated staff provide greater safety and monitoring for the retired or recovering equine and peace of mind for the owner.

Where did the name come from? 'Verida' was created by Michele's father, Tom Brennan.  When she was living in Kentucky, she needed a name for her farm there. "I called my father, the creative one, and after a couple of days he came up with 'Verida Farm'. Vermont for where I am from, and Florida for where my husband, Chip, is from."



Megan Brown Growing up on a farm, horses have been a part of Megan Brown's life from the beginning. She turned that love into her career by starting her first job at the age of 15 at an Arabian breeding facility. Since then Megan has worked at several different show barns, breeding programs and boarding facilities.

With her hands on knowledge and years of experience Megan excels at every aspect of horse care and barn management. She approaches everything with a quite, calm demeanor with the horses well being her top priority. In her spare time Megan enjoys riding and competing on her own personal horses and spending time with her dogs.
