Burning Benjamins offers training, boarding, instruction, showing, sales, clinics and bodywork for horse and rider.  Conveniently located within an easy drive to both Baltimore, MD, and Washington, D.C., we specialize in eventing, dressage, jumping and retraining Off Track Thoroughbreds, but also work with all breeds and disciplines.  ICP certified trainer Chiantel Beaumont has been riding, training, competing and teaching for over 20 years and also has her Maryland Jockey Club Thoroughbred exercise license.  She has been a licensed bodyworker since 2001.  Equine and equestrian sports massage services and horse performance evaluations offered in addition to training/instruction.

Diversification, or Oscar, as we call him at the barn, is a lovely 2009 Thoroughbred gelding.  He spent his entire racing career with the same owner-trainer, and raced his 25th and last race on October 11, 2014, and moved in with us the very next day.  He's quiet and willing under saddle, so much so that the kids were able to ride him around the farm within days of racing!  He spent his first year with us letting down and enjoying the occasional hack, then doing some light work over the ensuing months.  Summer 2016 brought his first show experiences, where he did extremely well with a new-to-showing rider.  No spooking, bucking, or misbehavior of any sort, this guy just doesn't put a foot wrong.  He has impeccable breeding by Pleasant Tap out of a Seattle Slew mare and stands a hair under 16.2Hh. We are excited to see where he goes!  More info and updates will be coming as he progresses.
