Stony Run Fields is a full service boarding, training and lesson facility. We offer teaching to riders over the age of five years old. We are committed to teaching and training all our riders and horses with quality, patience, consistency and kindness. We take our time to teach horses and riders to work in partnership and harmony, built on a relationship of training with trust. We teach and train disciplines in Western and English. Our professional and certified staff offer a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Finished in 2013, Stony Run Fields encompasses 37 acres of pristine farmland and woodlands with a large 184 x 94 foot indoor arena and sixteen stalls. Each stall is 12 x 12 with automatic heated waterers and access to outside runs. We have 10 separate turnout pastures so we can rest our fields and make sure they aren’t over grazed. We have trails on the property for boarders to enjoy and for training horses.
Lessons are recommended weekly for riders to improve.
We DO NOT OFFER TRAIL RIDES or HORSE RENTAL.
