Stratford Stables has been a center of equestrian activities for nearly fifty years. The full service equestrian facility is surrounded by two very exclusive golf courses, and is located in the beautiful town of Purchase, NY. We are just thirty minutes from New York City, and minutes from I-684 and Westchester County Airport.
Stratford Stables is a seven acre boarding and training facility, which includes an 80' X 200' indoor arena and a 200' X 300' outdoor arena. The stable includes 30 stalls, heated tack room, office, and wash stall. The property includes wonderful grass fields along with individual grass turnouts.
Stratford offers a full range of equestrian services including instruction, full-care boarding, horse shows, and sales. The commitment of the staff at Stratford to their students is to teach children and adults who are interested in learning horsemanship, horse management and care, and to do so in a positive learning environment. We emphasize safety, commitment, responsibility and sportsmanship!
Stratford offers lessons for children ages six years and older, along with the young at heart. The group lessons are small and riders are placed according to their experience and ability. New riders will start out with a few private lessons and then placed into a small group. We keep the groups small so that each person gets plenty of attention.
Horseback riding should be a fun experience for the horse and rider. Riding is a team effort where the horse and rider learn to work together. Small schooling shows are held so students can show family and friends their progress.
Mini camps are offered during summer and winter breaks, where the rider will learn to groom and tack up their own horse, and help with their daily care. Riders will also learn how to be safe around the barn and the horses.
If you are a rider who enjoys lessons once a week, or a more serious rider who has competitive goals, we do our best to meet each rider's needs. Group and private lessons are taught all year round, rain or shine.
