Comprehensive training program.


Our training program is based on promoting and maintaining soundness through fitness. Our focus is on making both horse and rider well rounded, balanced, healthy, and happy partners. We have a systematic approach to dressage training that will fit both you and your horse’s specific needs. Cross-training is very important to Dressage and we incorporate ground work, hill work, trail riding and even fox hunting into our program.

Our farm lends itself to producing efficient results with two formal arenas (indoor and outdoor) and rolling, hilly terrain for additional conditioning.

Custom to you and your goals.


Becoming the best rider you can be is a lifelong learning experience. Finding a coach to inspire you to greater heights can produce extraordinary results. We at Afton Stables understand the importance of gaining your trust so that you and your horse can form a true partnership and have fun in the process.
