New Boston Farm

The Very Finest Instruction in the Art of Riding

The Program 

New Boston Farm offers a summer day program in addition to the regular lesson schedule. Two week sessions are offered most seasons. Young riders spend the day at the barn learning about the responsibilities and joys of horse ownership.  

The day is filled with 'hands on' experiences with our horses.  Participants learn to  ride, groom, bathe, clip and braid horses, as well as how to determine a horses vital signs, measure the height of a horse, bandage and wrap the legs and administer horse first aid. Feeding, deworming, and understanding shoeing is also part of the curriculum. In addition, students spend time cleaning tack and stalls -- a necessary part of stable life!
