Any Day Now Farm, located in the heart of horse country in Georgetown, KY, sits less than an hour outside of iconic Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY and Keenland Park in Lexington, KY. Any Day Now Farm is an oasis for the equestrian enthusiast, trainer, buyer, or sportsperson. Pete Jordan, along with a silent partner, put a plan into action for a place that allows for any traveling competitors to house their competition horse in an environment that is changing the horse-sport community.
This is the evolution of the horse industry. Every square foot has to be ultra-efficient. The galvanizing allows for me to not have to worry about upkeep, I can travel and know that when I return the farm will be in the same state as when I left it. ~Pete Jordan
Pete himself grew up in the world of horse competition, selling his first horse at 14 years old. He now spends his adult life traveling the country, horse in tow, competing, training, selling, and celebrating the passion that stems from any horse lover. Any Day Now Farm is setting the pace for aesthetics, efficiency, and creativity in the horse competition/training culture.
Pete’s plan was to create a place that any traveling competitor can house, train, bath, run, groom, and or purchase their next champion. The goal was to create something that encompassed and exhibited the passion that he had for his sport that was efficient, durable, and memorable. He wanted something that would not only look appealing as you pulled in to the 39 acre lot, but a place that made you want to come back to train or purchase your next champion. The farm sits atop one of the rolling hills just north of Lexington, KY. As you take the gravel horseshoe-shaped drive up to the farm you can see 16 corrals, 2 outdoor arenas, a horse walker, the large barn, as well as the smaller grooming barn. There is a patio out back along with a mezzanine that overlooks the entire farm which will eventually host events and functions, as well as make anyone visiting feel like a VIP. Any Day Now Farm is not just a pit stop for a four legged competitor, but will someday be the home of mini boutique horseshows.
When pulling up to the barn you can see galvanized material throughout the farm. From each horse stall, stair case, fence panel, gate, the matte grey appearance pops with the stone façade. The dark oak enunciates the galvanized coating on the mesh panel fence surrounding the large barn and the exterior stair case. The stall doors allow for a free flow feel for the animal allowing for a hinged door to open in every stall. The durability of the coating will hold up well with the contact of a horse sticking its head through the open hatch. Throughout the barn a unique style of wood workmanship was used, peg and beam, displays the thought and workmanship that went into the farms aesthetic. The galvanized finish was used not only for the aestit of the rural environment to keep the rustic small town feel, but radiates class.
When asking Pete why hot dip galvanized was the route he wanted to take for all the metal work involved he stated, “This is the evolution of the horse industry… Every square foot has to be ultra-efficient. People are getting away from the 600 acre horse farms that take constant upkeep, this is just a small step in the direction that the industry is heading… The galvanizing allows for me to not have to worry about upkeep, I can travel and know that when I return the farm will be in the same state as when I left it...”
The thought that this is only the first of many locations that Pete will build is an understatement. The passion and enthusiasm that he exudes does not only translate to the quality of workmanship that he strives to achieve, the efficiency and sustainability of the material that went in to the first farm makes Any Day Now Farm a template for anyone in the industry to follow.
