The numbers of riders taking part in our Western lessons, clinics and shows has been steadily growing.
Heritage Farm has been gaining a reputation for offering a high class and fun environment for Stock Horse shows, Cattle events and Cowboy Races, thanks in no small part to David’s efforts and enthusiasm for these events. His trail course in the top field has impressed riders of every caliber from across New England and New York as well as getting unconditional praise from Julie Goodnight during her 4 days of clinics in August 2009.
Cowboy Races are judged AND timed events involving a series of ranch related obstacles, all on our beautiful outside trail course.
Cowboy Race dates for 2013: TBA
