Riding Lessons
Professional instruction for all levels of rider, on your own horse or one of ours.

Hunter Paces
Friendly competitive race held in spring/fall, teams of two-three riders compete over a flagged course for an ideal time. One of the most enjoyable aspects of being located in the heart of Dutchess County is the proximity to an excellent hunter pace circuit. In this friendly competitive series held each spring/fall, teams of two or three riders compete over a flagged course for an ideal time. For many, it’s the most fun you can have on a horse during the most beautiful time of year.

We routinely attend 3-day and combined training events in the region. Our horses and riders are highly competitive at these events. Please check our calendar for this year’s schedule.
