Our Story


Legacy Stables & Events is situated on the Weisner family’s 30-acre equestrian estate in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Owner Robert Weisner purchased the property as a place for his granddaughters to pursue their passion of riding and competing with American Saddlebred show horses. It has evolved to become one of the most unique venues in the Triad filled with warmth, elegance, and style.

Currently, Legacy Stables & Events boasts multiple indoor and outdoor event spaces to host 700 guests or small intimate gatherings. The Grace Barn and Legacy House offer a variety of options for any occasion.

In Spring 2021, we will be introducing The Forsyth Barn, which will add 22,000 square feet of event space for your next corporate event, wedding, or other celebration for up to 1,000 guests.


From 2014-2020, the property was home to Legacy Saddlebreds, a state-of-the-art horseback riding academy and training facility. Throughout that time, Legacy Saddlebreds grew to be one of the largest riding complexes in the Southeast, introducing thousands of people to horses, in particular the American Saddlebred. Nationally recognized instructors and trainers shared their passion of riding to students young and old, from recreational riders to competitors, proudly producing multiple National Champions, World Cup Gold Medalists, and World Champions.

The beautiful property with its gorgeous stables and detailed landscaping soon drew the attention of many. Engaged couples, photographers, and event professionals began to inquire about using the property for weddings and other special events. In 2018, Legacy Stables & Events began offering weddings and other special events, beginning the transformation into the exquisite event venue it is today.

In just a few short years, Legacy Stables & Events has been proud to host hundreds of diverse celebrations for families and companies in the Triad and beyond. We look forward to helping you plan your next event, as you start your Legacy here!
