About the Farm

The 48 acre farm has a main barn with 17 box stalls, a foaling barn with two oversized stalls and three run-in sheds with attached turn-out for field board. There is a wash area with hot and cold water in the main barn. Numerous grassy pastures and smaller paddocks are safely fenced for ample turnout. Two tack rooms are available to store equipment.

There is a 72'x144' indoor arena with sand, rubber, and felt footing and a 120'x240' outdoor fenced sand and rubber ring. Both have excellent lighting for evening riding. Trails through woods and fields are great for hacking. The owner lives on site.

Many young horses have gotten an excellent start under trainer Sandy Kantor, then gone on to excel as dressage horses, jumpers, hunters, and pleasure horses. Sandy is very willing to work with horse and owner as a team to start, re-school or further both the horse and rider's education. Owners with a busy work schedule can opt for partial training to keep their horse schooled and fit on days they can't make it to the farm.

Schocharie Ridge Farm has been in business since 1984, providing excellent, conscientious care and training for horses of all breeds. The facilities are clean and well-managed by people who truly care about horses. Dressage clinics and schooling shows are periodically hosted at the farm.
