Horton’s Farm  Clinic Weekends – 2017

Enjoy the summer and fall weather at Horton’s Farm riding in clinics tailored to your needs.  We offer training sessions for longlining, flat work, jumping, gymnastics, lead change work, as well as ground manners.   Also cross country schooling in a calm atmosphere, to educate your derby hunter or your event horse.

If competition is not your goal, enjoy riding with friends in lessons, and a relaxing ride on the beautiful hills of Mount Tom located in Woodstock, VT.

Do you need help loading your horse? Backing up your trailer?

Let us know what you want.
