BREAKING NEWS FROM A NEWDA BUSINESS MEMBER!!!!!
Lindinhof has a huge announcement – our expansion is finished!!
Lindinhof is dressage training facility for horses and riders, located on a 20 acre family farm on the north side of Oregon. The main focus is offering dressage monthly training, sales of top quality horses, and individual lessons. Dressage is an equestrian sport, which can be found in the Olympics and is the foundation for all types of equestrian disciplines. Dressage can benefit all types of horses and riders. The primary goal is to improve the health and balance of the horse, their way of going, as well as defining a clear partnership between horse and rider.
The name Lindinhof is in honor of Megan McIsaac’s parents. Lin is for her mother, Linda, and din is for her father, Dinny, and hof, is farm in German. Megan began her love affair with horses at the age of two and never looked back! In 1992, her parent’s built a 60 x 180 barn, which included three stalls, a shop, and a riding arena. By 2003, Megan had decided that horses were her way of life and incorporated, took out a loan and added on! The end result: elevan stalls, the same indoor riding arena, and an outdoor!
Full speed forward, it is the end of2014, Megan decided to expand again! This time construction brought a new 80 x 200 heated riding arena with one end lined with mirrors to provide comfort to clients and myself through the hard winter month, a connecting hallway, 13 new stalls, a new tack room filled with individual lockers!
This building project was a 15 year dream, but the building process was tough, It took a year and a half to build! The stress of maintaining a business during construction, maintaining a competition schedule, dealing with builders for more than a year on a four month project, firing the original builders, rehiring new builders, changing the budget as well as keeping clients happy and horses healthy. The great news is --- it’s finished!!!
The end result is a beautiful riding hall for horses, riders, and auditors to enjoy. The buildings peak is 24 feet high and there are windows down three sides, which give a spacious feeling and allows natural light in. The east wall is fully lined with mirrors to allow riders to watch their horses dance and to correct their posture. For daily teaching and hosting top clinicians, the building boosts a great sound system for all individuals to hear the detailed instructions. For horses that come into full training, there are thirteen brand new pine stalls lined with black trim. Each stall has individual feeders that slide out and windows. There are three new tack up bays for client to tack up their horses conveniently located across for the tack room. Within the new client tackroom, there is hot water for tea, a tack cleaning station, and individual lockers to put their tack in.
On Saturday, February 16, 2016, Lindinhof and Megan were acknowledged by the Oregon Chamber of Commerce at their Annual Awards Night with the Building Renovation Recognition Award!
