The East Hill Farm riding program offers a variety of riding experiences to appeal to the different abilities and interests of our guests.
Pony Rides will be offered in the summer on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays. Times will vary, please sign up in the barn. This activity is for children ages 5 and under.
Jr. Wrangler Lessons are offered for children ages 5 and up. The lessons take place in our outdoor arena. Some children may need a member of our equestrian staff to lead the horse in order to feel more comfortable.
Western Trail Rides are available for ages 10 and up. Guests ages 8 and 9 can participate in a trail ride under the following conditions: Child must take at least one junior wrangler lesson and demonstrate his/her ability and skill to control a horse or pony in a trail ride situation.
Horsemanship Experience is offered in the summer before 8:30am. During this experience, participants are assigned their own horse to work with and will be instructed in how to properly groom and care for their horse as well as learn horse-to-rider bonding techniques. This experience is for guests ages 5 and above. An adult must sign participants up and accompany children ages 5 & 6. Please inquire in the barn for availability in the fall, winter and spring.
East Hill Farm Equestrian Drill Team Demonstration will occur on Wednesday mornings at 11:30 throughout the summer.
Our picturesque trails pass through wooded areas, across open fields and offer an occasional view of Mount Monadnock. Our stable has horses to match most guest’s size and riding ability. All rides are accompanied by friendly, experienced trail guides. All riders are required to wear a safety helmet and sign a release form.
Trail Rides and Jr Wrangler Lessons are offered year round as the ground and weather conditions permit. Insurance regulations require that each riding participant is present at sign up, so that they can be interviewed/assessed by the equestrian staff. All sign ups occur in the horse barn. Riding availability is on a first come, first served basis. We hope to see you at the stable enjoying our riding program.
Please Note: The horses will not ride on Fridays from June 22 through September 3 to give them a well deserved day off!
