Giralda Farms was the name given to her New Jersey country estate, stables, and kennels. Her residence was a revival of Medieval Spanish Gothic architecture style with appointments resembling Giralda. The vast estate was known internationally for horse and dog shows. Saint Hubert's at Giralda, founded on her estate, became her refuge for injured and lost animals. Among other patronages, Saint Hubert was the patron saint of hunters and dogs.
