Country Life Farm and Merryland Farm encompass 113 and 180 acres in Bel Air and Hydes, Maryland, respectively. Country Life has been the home of the Pons family’s Thoroughbred breeding operation since 1933. Country Life and Merryland are equipped to handle every aspect of your Thoroughbred’s career, from foaling to breaking to training to breeding.
Merryland, nine miles from Country Life, features a 5/8-mile training track, complete with a starting gate. Merryland has its own two-stall French-style stallion barn where Rock Talk (sire of Eclipse Champion Heartlight No. One) once stood, and where our own stallions were housed in 2012 and 2013 until the completed renovation of the Country Life stud barn.
