  • "I bought this book hoping it would help me understand my OTTB mare better, and it has been awesome! Kimberly Clark is very detailed and thorough, and the information provided explains so much without being boring or hard to understand. It has been extremely helpful and I recommend it to anyone who currently owns or is thinking about owning an Off Track Thoroughbred! I was also pleasantly surprised to read that the author is actually in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, very close to me!" ~ Chef Steph

  • "Absolutely fantastic book if you have an OTTB, particularly if you're not familiar with the differences between how a horse at the track is ridden versus a horse in any other discipline. Should help a lot to avoid misunderstandings between the OTTB and their new owner. Also a lot of helpful information in how to care for your new horse once he's off the track. Highly recommend this book, even for very experienced horse people who may not be familiar with the differences in how racehorses are ridden. Great book!" ~ Kangi

  • "This book is so good, I can't hardly put it down. I have my highlighter next to me while I'm reading it. I have a several sentences and paragraphs highlighted to look back on that gave me great information on how to train my OTTB Thoroughbred. The writer makes everything so much clearer to understand. I can actually picture her training ideas in my head and on my horses back. I wish I could meet her in person and watch her work with her horses. Thank you so much." ~ Amazon Customer

We have an extensive wait list to get into our program so we are looking for a few good farms to foster some horses until we have an opening.  Farms near Leighton Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland are preferred so we can stay in contact and help with the transition to farm life.

Contact us

Leighton Farm, 13130 Molly Berry Road, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772


*** If you come in from Croom onto Molly Berry, you will come to a stop sign, bear LEFT at the stop sign and then turn LEFT at the blue and white “Leighton Farm” sign. If you come in from North Keyes, at the end you will take a hard right and it turns into Molly Berry Road The farm will be on the LEFT, look for the blue and white “Leighton Farm” sign.  Do not look for the farm, you cannot see it from the road. Turn up the paved driveway and then RIGHT onto the gravel road, there is a small “Leighton Farm” sign with an arrow.  Once on the gravel road, follow around to the farm.  Please drive slowly as we have small animals and horses on the property.
