Sand Meadow Farm owned by Andrea and Steven Barber is a small hobby farm located in the horse friendly hamlet of Mendon, just South of the city of Rochester in the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York State. It is our own little oasis in these busy times.
Although we both have other careers, our true passion is Icelandic horses. We have been deeply involved with the breed for about 20 years. Steve and Andrea are active members of the United States Icelandic Horse Congress. Andrea is President Emeritus of the USIHC, a past US Breeding Leader, and current board member. Both Andrea and Steve are also founding members of their regional club, The Saint Skutla Icelandic Horse Club which encompasses Western and Central New York.
At Sand Meadow Farm we are devoted to the Icelandic horse. Quality is far more important to us than quantity. We want to be proud of any horse bearing the name of our farm. Although, Sand Meadow is not a “sale barn” we do breed high quality horses and occasionally have some for sale. We also take specially selected horses for consignment sale. In addition, we offer lessons for those interested in learning to ride this special horse. And we always are happy to introduce newcomers to the breed.
