Come Ride With Us!

For riders of all disciplines and levels of ability, mounted on your own horse or on one of ours, Netherwood Acres offers an exceptional range of opportunities to experience the pleasure of horseback riding – a full complement of equestrian opportunities that are unmatched anywhere else in the region.

Riding Lessons

Professional instruction for all levels of rider, on your own horse or one of ours.

Trail Riding Lessons

Our weekly rides typically last 2 hours and are unlike others you may have experienced. We are fortunate to have access to an extensive trail system as well as our own wooded areas and fields. These rides are held throughout the year. Rides are tailored to the weather to ensure your safety and pleasure. As always, you can ride your own horse or hire one of ours for the day.

Hunter Paces

Friendly competitive race held in spring/fall, teams of two-three riders compete over a flagged course for an ideal time.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being located in the heart of Dutchess County is the proximity to an excellent hunter pace circuit. In this friendly competitive series held each spring/fall, teams of two or three riders compete over a flagged course for an ideal time. For many, it’s the most fun you can have on a horse during the most beautiful time of year.

Hunter Trials

We routinely attend 3-day and combined training events in the region. Our horses and riders are highly competitive at these events. Please check our calendar for this year’s schedule.

Clinics (on and off-site)

Conducted by leading riders and industry professionals, clinics consist of stadium, cross-country or dressage instruction. We will transport your horse to the clinic location or if needed, provide one of our horses for you to ride.

We have longstanding relationships with The Millbrook Hunt, Rombout Hunt, and Golden’s Bridge Hounds.  Come fox hunting with us, we can provide you with an experienced horse that suits your riding skills.
