WEST CORNWALL TWP., Pa. — The historic Quentin Riding Club will be auctioned off on July 13.
Founded in 1935, the Quentin Riding Club was known for its horse shows, particularly the Fall Classic. The club also hosted fun shows and rated competitions for hunters, jumpers, dressage mounted games and saddlebreds.
There farm included a club house and restaurant that hosted special events such as concerts and country dancing. Horses were boarded in several barns.
However, in recent years the club fell behind in tax payments and other bills. Fundraising and other efforts to find a buyer that would continue to operate the equestrian activities apparently fell through. The club ceased operations in the fall of 2018.
A minimum price of $950,000 was set although the property was appraised at $2.3 million a few years ago. A tax sale notice published in August 2018 listed the club's tax debt at more than $98,000.
The 46-acre property includes the Club House with a dining area, large turnkey kitchen, bar, rest rooms, dance floor, storage rooms and enclosed entrance and more.
There are several barns with a total of more than 400 stalls.
There is also a tenant house, three show rings, exercise ring, covered grandstand, auxiliary club house, show office, announcers building, wooden fence paddocks, macadam parking area, stream, camper electric hookups, tree lined driveway entrances and other unlisted amenities and equine related items.
The area is zoned low density residential.
