It is situated on 32 acres which is connected to Mountsberg Conservation Area.

 Plans to build an additional new barn and arena are currently underway.  JohnMel Stables continue to offer, breeding, training and sales services.


JohnMel Stables specializes in offering horses that are bred or trained to be the best possible equine partner. Our breeding program is small and broodmares are carefully selected for pedigree, temperament and ability to produce a top performance horse. Our training program is customized to the individual requirements of the horse and the rider.  Our sale horses are given individual training programs to complement the natural skills and ability of the horse, producing a horse that is willing and ready to do its best whether it be in the competition ring, the racetrack or out on the trails as a pleasure mount.

JohnMel business practices are grounded in the principles of honesty, integrity and respect. The best possible fit for prospective clients and our horses is the prime consideration. FHF stands behind EVERY horse that comes through this farm. We know that is difficult to find in the equine world and does put us at a distinct disadvantage at times, but in the the end, we are proud to say we have done our very best for our horses.
