About White Winds Farm

White Winds Farm was started as a family operation in New Jersey  as a sales based barn offering horses off the track that had been retrained. When the business had gotten large enough the decision was made to move to North Carolina and start a full fledged training center for horses and riders. Owned and operated by the Dunlap family, our motto is to help develop good horsemanship in riders while keeping the fun in horses. We stand for good horsemanship, good sportsmanship, and a love for horses that can't be beat.
