7480 Badenoch Dr - Dublin, Ohio
Hawthorne Hill is a full service training facility specilizing in hunter/jumpers/Equitation and Veterinary Medicine. Our facility is conveniently located on the Northwest corner of Columbus in Dublin, Ohio. Hawthorne Hill, LLC was established in 2012 by Holly Helbig while attending vet school at The Ohio State University. The business began as a side job for Holly to help pay bills thru school. At the time of graduation in 2013, the business had grown to 10 clients with horses and it moved into the back barn at Far and Away in Marysville, Ohio. After much contiplation, Holly felt she could combine the love of veterinary medicine with training.
In Summer of 2016, Far and Away Farm decided to close its doors and we moved to Badenoch Dr in Dublin, OH. The barn had been torn apart by previous tenants and everyone at Hawthorne Hill came together to make this our new home. After two days of cleaning, fixing stalls, repairing the paddocks, etc... the place looked beautiful and was ready for our horses. In all my life, I've never seen such an act of dedication and help to make this business move forward.
The new barn and home of Hawthorne Hill includes 21 permanent stalls with dutch doors, a large medical stall, 80 X 120 ft indoor arena, a heated wash stall with hot water, 100X200' outdoor arena, 3 all wether paddocks, 5 grass paddocks, fully updated kitchen, outdoor entertainment area with built in grill, pond, trails and washer/ dryer. In the winter of 2016, the footing was stripped from the indoor and replaced with brand new sand footing. In 2017, we have added an outdoor gazebo, indoor viewing room and a new cast iron gate (with many thanks to the HH clients). Future plans include leveling and new footing for the outdoor ring and more landscaping. Our long term goals include building a vet/podiatry clinic and a small home on the property.
After initially joining the Hawthorne Hill family as Assistant Trainer, Alisha Metcalfe officially began her duties as Head Trainer at the beginning of 2020 to allow Holly Helbig to focus on her Veterinary career. The two professionals pair well together, and enjoy watching Hawthorne Hill students develop and grow in their equestrian passion.
