Caron + Esarey

Plan . Design . Construct . Manage



Caron + Esarey

The perfect blend of planning, design, construction, and management.  Two masters at their trade working, brainstorming, questioning every decision from acquisition of the right piece of property, through planning, design, construction, management, until the keys are turned over to the owner.  Brad and Bill have worked together over the years at WinStar and Three Chimneys.  Now they are Caron + Esarey, Plan Design Construct Manage.  These guys love what they do and their work proves it.



Brad Caron has 35 years of practical equine management experience in acquisition, planning, designing, constructing, and managing World Class equine operations.  Brad was instrumental in the complete development of WinStar Farm.  Brad just completed major renovations and updates to Three Chimneys Farm.  When people in the Horse industry have a development, construction, or question about quality they call Brad.  Brad has a comprehensive understanding of what makes a horse farm great for horses: safety, operations, management, maintenance, and the owner’s bottom line. From the time he was 8 years old and his father paid him a nickel a sheet to nail out plywood, building has been his passion.



William E. Esarey, or Bill, has 35 years of experience, 20 years working on horse farms.  His first project was a muck pit.  It must have been a good muck pit because it turned into the complete design, development, and construction of Mt. Brilliant Farm.  Bill has won 12 American Society of Landscape Architects Awards, three of which were horse farms.  Mt. Brilliant Farm, Bluegrass Heights Farm (a part of Three Chimneys with Brad Caron,) and Morgan Farm in Austin, Indiana which was an update to an Olmsted Brothers Project.  Bill’s recognition is due to his soft touch with the land, capitalizing on what the land has to offer.  Bill’s best attribute is he LISTENS to what his clients want.  Then does his best to help them achieve it.  Bill starts with function and safety.  He then weaves the program and desires into a beautiful project that functions great for his clients.
