The training options at Birch Hill Farm are diverse and will satisfy every discipline.

The Indoor Arena provides a 20-by-40 meter riding area that allows for both jumping and flat work. The footing is Pinnacle, a polymer coated sand that is dust free and reduces concussion. The open span construction, and the plentiful light fixtures, give a bright spacious riding space at any time of year and the garage door sized windows can be raised in the summer to provide a pavilion feel. A seven foot kick-wall ensures undisturbed riding sessions even for the larger horse and a safe free-jumping environment. The package is complete with a separately entered viewing area.

The Outdoor Arena sized 200-by-90 feet is a one of a kind riding experience with its breathtaking views overlooking the mountain ranges in the distance. The dust-free polymer coated sand ensures the perfect footing rain or shine, while the surrounding 5 foot hedges allows for a safe ride when training the young horse. Fitted with a complete large dressage ring, its the perfect place to perfect that dressage test.

The Stadium-Jump Field with its grass footing allows the horse and rider an additional dimension of choice. Many movable, colorful jumps are available with a variety of training options.

Our Cross Country Course is ever improving, with jumps placed to allow for both novice and higher level options. We offer natural logs mixed with man made coops and benches. Stone walls and banks are permanent features while we have movable tables, corners, brush fences and roll tops allowing for many jumping combinations.

The Conditioning Trails at Birch Hill Farm have the Vermont advantage of rolling hills. We have embraced nature and created extra wide galloping trails. Whether you are conditioning your horse for top level events, going out for a quiet hack, or wanting to take your horse and carriage for a drive our trails will ensure that it will be memorable.
