Kimberly Farms of Shaftsbury, Vermont, offers unique horse riding experiences and panoramic views. The 60-acre farm includes Vermont's oldest marble quarry and a mountainside wildlife preserve. The Green Mountain National Forest and farms carpeting the foothills provide scenic beauty in all directions. From some locations on the farm, one can see three states, as well as three mountain ranges: the Berkshires, the Green Mountains, and the Taconics.
We take the personal approach at Kimberly Farms, just taking a few riders at a time, ensuring a more intimate and safer experience. You can even reserve an individual ride, just you and our guide.
Our most popular ride is a one-hour walking tour of rolling farmland on a trail that ascends through a wooded wildlife preserve to a lovely viewpoint on our own Lookout Mountain. Ride by Vermont's oldest marble quarry, and keep your eyes open to catch glimpses of deer, foxes, coyotes, pheasant, wild turkey, grouse and innumerable species of songbirds. Perhaps - even a moose? Ride through wild flowers in the spring, dramatic foliage in the fall or play in the winter snowfall.
