Folly Farm has an active IEA program for both middle school and high school aged riders. Coached by Sue Miller and Erin McNamara, our IEA teams have won numerous Zone and National Awards. Riders are expected to lesson twice per week and to participate in IEA horse shows each session. Please call the farm at 860-658-9943 if you are interested in finding out

    Even if you don’t have your own horse, you can ride at Folly Farm through our Riding School and IEA programs. The Riding School operates year round. We have a large outdoor sand ring, as well as two indoor arenas to accommodate all levels of riders regardless of the weather.

     Riding School private and group lessons are offered Monday through Saturday with lesson groups based on the rider's age and experience level.  New riders can call us at (860) 658-9943 to set up an appointment to visit and to schedule a private evaluation lesson. You can then continue with private lessons and/or be placed in an appropriate group lesson by our instructor.  Returning riders please call us to find out when a group at your level is being offered.
