News from the Farm

New indoor arena footing + upgraded lights!

2019 was a very busy year here at the farm.  We finished off an incredible year by replacing the footing of our indoor riding area.  Lawton Adams did a great job finishing the job in a few short days.   The positive feedback from riders has been overwhelming. 

Additionally, all overhead lighting has been replaced. The future is looking very bright!




Security & Safety Updates


At Pine Plains Equestrian,  safety and security are at the forefront of everything we do.  Nothing is more important than the safety of our staff, clients and four legged friends.   We’ve installed new cameras around the barn and in each of our 30+ stalls.   We now have the ability to monitor every horse in real time – 24 hours a day.  Hopefully these updates can bring a little peace of mind to our farm family.  


Larkin Hill HT

It’s a busy week of competing for Pam! Sunday she headed up to Larkin Hill HT with her own horse Mars as well as The MaCormick’s Families horse Domino. Both horses had solid days and brought home a 3rd place each in their respective divisions. Its so fun to see how theses horses have been progressing throughout the season.

Today Pam headed over to Crosswinds for some show jumping on Sara Runser’s horse Clover. He was a total star and brought home a 1st place, a clear round and a 4th! He really shines as he blazes around the course.

2019 Halloween Jumper Show

It was so nice to see each of you out at our first horse show! We look forward to holding more in the future, and hope to see everyone back! A big thank you to Kaci Behn for being our photographer on the day, as well as the staff and volenteers for all their hard work! 

Millbrook Horse Trials ’19

Day 1

Millbrook Horse Trials kicked off for Pine Plains Equestrian today. Pam had a lovely dressage on Domino owned by the McCormick family. Thank you to the team for getting everything organized at home and the show, as well as helping to keep our horses always looking top notch! We’re looking forward to seeing how the rest of the show progresses!

Day 2

It was another beautiful day for riding! Pam ran Cross-Country on Domino, who had a very bold round and only added time to his score. Pam also got to spend the afternoon competing her own horse Mars. After a long period away from eventing, he’s taken back to it, as though he never took a pause! They had a beautiful dressage round, with a 28.5, followed by a fantastic double clear run around the cross country putting them into 5th for the overnight. Were looking forward to seeing how the weekend finishes up tomorrow with Show Jumping.

Day 3

Great finish to Millbrook HT 2019 for Pine Plains Equestrian. Pam and Domino flew around the show jumping for a beautiful double clear. This was his second ever event and he handled the atmosphere like any other day with a solid relaxed attitude. We look forward to seeing where this horse goes in the future! As for Mars, due to unfortunate weather conditions at the end of Saturday, his divisions show jumping was cancelled. They took the scores as they stood after cross country, therefore he brought home a lovely 5th place ribbon and the positive experience to head into another outing soon.
