Winds Reach today.



Wind's Reach Farm is the Iowa Corridor's premier dressage and combined training facility, where riders will find the training and tools they need to prepare for competition through the levels.


Established in 1956 by Fritz and Betsy Coester as a training base for their children, Winds Reach has remained a busy show barn since its inception, hosting numerous clinics, shows and events, and served as the home for the Rapid Creek Pony Club from 1959 to 1998.

Today, Winds Reach Farm is operated by Bill Coester. Set among Iowa's famed gently rolling hills, and surrounded by woods, Winds Reach Farm is a quiet refuge for horses and riders. The farm's ideal corridor location makes it an easy drive for riders in Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Mount Vernon and Cedar Rapids. Winds Reach features cross country obstacles, beautiful trails and a competition-sized indoor arena. The farm is a frequent setting for dressage and eventing clinics, schooling shows and jumping derbies, and offers on site professional training.
