Equestrian Facility and

Cattle Farm Design

Wynn-Smith Landscape Architecture, Inc. has long recognized the need for Landscape Architects who are not only creative with site planning and design but also understand the behavior and needs of horses and horsemen. See more examples of our equestrian work by visiting the featured project galleries below.

What excites us about these projects are the many opportunities to creatively work out design solutions harmonizing equestrian needs with human and vehicular requirements.

Tim Smith, our principal landscape architect, enjoys sharing his knowledge of horses and design to creatively develop master plans that are not only safe and efficient but also beautiful and reflective of the client’s goals.

He gained practical experience by working at his father's farm, Pegasus Stud in Lexington, Kentucky, working at the Keeneland and Fasig-Tipton Sales, and studying the many farms for which his father, an equine veterinarian, worked. Enhancing Tim's practical experience, he regularly consults with his brother, Jeff Smith, a farm manager in Versailles, Kentucky, and his father, Dr. James D. Smith, a veterinarian of equine medicine at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute.

Wynn-Smith Landscape Architecture, Inc. also offers services for the development of master plans and design for cattle farms and ranches. We understand the issues of pasture management for efficient sustainable grazing, safe methods of moving livestock across the ranch or farm and the importance of keeping livestock relaxed while moving through shoots.
