Come Ride with Us!

Schooling in the arena.

Blue Ribbon Farm & Academy is a lesson, boarding and training stable in northern Dutchess County–convenient to Rhinebeck, Red Hook and Bard College. We offer a wealth of programs, including Saddle Club, horse shows, workshops, holiday pageants and Summer Riding Camp. We also partner with Red Hook Continuing Education and Columbia Greene Community College.

We conduct private, semi-private and group lessons for students age 3-75, tailored to their individual needs. Our wonderful academy horses and ponies are suitable for little children up to seasoned riders. We train competitive riders for dressage, jumping and horse shows. Our riding team competes locally and at “A” circuit shows, including HITS-on-the-Hudson.

In addition to boarding, our services include exercising, training and re-schooling horses. Academy horses are available for full or partial lease, horse shows and special events–such as pony parties. We offer attractive rates, with family discounts and working student options.
