What needs improvement: The horses do not get great care. There is an extreme amount of drama caused by one of the instructors. The quality of the hay is variable, some months its great, others its horrible. Somewhat barbaric ways of "training" horses. One instructor in particular should not be teaching. Stall have holes. Horses are underweight and stand out in the muddy pastures, making their hooves soft. If you can afford to go to a different place. Do it.
What needs improvement: I live in the area and never have I seen a car going in or out of that driveway. Every now and then i'll see a horse or two out in the dirt (I refuse to call it a pasture because there is no grass). I never see any riders and when I do see horses, they look skinny. That place is not a stable, it's a horse prison.
What I like: High quality hay and grain. Fred is really easy to get along with.
What needs improvement: Really needs to work on pasture since there is ZERO grass in the fields due to too many horses in one area. Ring is cluttered and had huge hunters trench- simply working the ring would help. Had strangles and didn't quarantine the barn or tell anyone so they could sanitize properly.
What I like: One of the few boarding barns in the Hampton area with an organized lesson program. Barn owner is very knowledable about horse care and maintenance. Horses are well-cared for with quaility feed/hay and ample hours of turnout. Lots of kids around since it is a very active program. Also good "down-time" for the boarders to ride without kids underfoot.
What needs improvement: Capability of school ponies was adequate for beginning riders and early intermediate. However there were no school ponies available who knew their job beyond w/t/c and hop over little jumps. Lead changes and basic lateral work were demonstrated by sales horses. Students were asked to learn these movements on horses/ponies who were also learning.
