Lost World Farm in Highland, Michigan

Lost World FarmLost World Farm is owned by Leo and Linda Wanstreet. It is a small private farm with 4 regular stalls, an indoor arena, and several paddocks. Situated in Michigan's first designated "Horse Community" of Highland Township, the farm includes ten acres of rolling hills with an abundance of trees that the horses really appreciate on hot summer days. The name "Lost World Farm" came from Linda's feeling of existing in another time when at home watching the horses graze and romp, as well as all the other wildlife that claim part of the farm as home during various times of the year.

From 2004 thru 2006 Linda learned and competed with the Dutch WB gelding Bim Bambino, a Grand Prix Schoolmaster. Earning her bronze medal in 2005 with scores from Patrick in 1st and 2nd level and Bim Bam in 3rd level, and her silver medal in 2006 with scores in 4th level and Prix St. Georges on Bim Bam. He went on to a new owner and home in Florida in 2006.

Currently Linda is looking for a new Dressage horse and exploring other avenues for herself and her horses.
