If you love horses it is the perfect spot to relax and take in the views of the horses enjoying time in their large fields. If you love riding horses, even better. We can arrange horsemanship experiences, including both riding lessons and trail rides. Of course on our wonderful, gaited, Icelandic Horses.
The area is full of recreational activities including hiking and biking, both mountain and road, swimming in our beautiful Mad River, Blueberry Lake or maybe Warren Falls. The Waterbury Reservoir is just a short drive away. Canoeing, kayaking and fishing are also options. Our own Shepard’s Brook borders the back side of the horse farm.
In the winter months you can ski, both downhill and cross country, ice skate or snowshoe, oh and don’t forget sledding… the horse farm driveway is usually perfect for it. The farm is also just a short drive to the VAST trail system for snowmobiling. So bring your snowmobile if you have one! The Sugarbush Mad River Valley has 4 season activities and some of the finest dining establishments and shopping anywhere including Vermont’s Best Farmers Market in Summer and in August The Festival of The Arts all month long!
* Guests may not bring pets on premises inside or outside. No Smoking Allowed. Age 8 & up preferred. We do have Wifi. All wheel drive and snow tires are recommended.

Lodging at Our Inn

When your Icelandic Horse ride has ended, and we’ve returned to the farm and dismounted, our hospitality has only begun. For a complete Vermont vacation experience, we invite you to stay with us at the Mad River Inn.
Our rambling 1860’s-era Victorian country house is a relaxing complement to a day in the saddle. Soak in our hot tub, sleep restfully in our feather beds, and awake to a gourmet country breakfast. In season, we’ll serve it on our back porch overlooking the meadow.
The inn is on a quiet side road, just off Route 100. It’s convenient to our farm and to all the attractions that the Mad River Valley has to offer. We’d be pleased to arrange accommodations to match your riding dates and everything else you choose to do here. Click here for more information about the Mad River Inn, or call us at 1-800-832-8278 for a unique bed, breakfast, and bridle vacation.
