Welcome to Aslan Farm ... ''There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man'', Winston Churchill. Nestled in the rolling hills of southwest Virginia, near the Blue Ridge Steps, Aslan Farm was formed of its surroundings and made of the virtue in its bearing, a horse farm that is at one with its natural beauty and the symmetry of a well-planned property.
