On February 15, 2019, Magnolia Farm is going to luxury auction. Given the amount of foot traffic the farm has been receiving on its multiple open days, I am fairly sure that I will be looking for a new residence for Ilse Schwarz Dressage before the end of the Wellington winter season. I really do want the farm to have a successful sale. Gaye and Joe Scarpa have been the most amazing owners, and deserve it. However, my heart cracks just a little bit every time I think of leaving.
