RiverHorse Farm is a family-owned horse boarding and training facility in North Salem, NY which has been in continuous operation since 1950. It was operated by Fox family as a hunt barn and later purchased by Dr. Alexis Finlay and her father in 1996. A site of the first American circus syndicate and also the 1965 airline crash viewed as the "Miracle on the Hudson" of its day, the farm has historical fame as well as local charm.
RiverHorse offers experienced care by trained equine professionals in a traditional setting. There are 3 barns with stabling for 30 horses in spacious rubber-matted stalls and over 20 turnout paddocks on 50 acres. We take pride in having created a friendly and supportive environment where everyone from casual trail riders to passionate dressage, eventing, or hunter/jumper competitors can enjoy their horses and their sports to the fullest. Beginner through advanced-level training in show jumping, dressage, and cross country is available by certified instructors.
Situated on rolling North Salem hills and fields only one hour from New York City, the facilities include a gorgeous state-of-the-art covered ring and two outdoor jumping and dressage arenas. The property also has direct access to the beautiful North Salem Bridle Trail system and the only Eric Bull-designed cross country course in North Salem. The farm, set in picturesque Westchester horse country, is within hacking distance from the Golden's Bridge Hounds hunt headquarters and a number of renowned show barns including Old Salem Farm, which holds a series of rated and unrated horse shows every year.
RiverHorse Farm regularly hosts nationally- and internationally-known trainers, which have included Sally Cousins, Jayne Marino, Tom Noone, Steve Milne, David Collins, Bridgette Miller, and Mikki Kuchta who are regular instructors at the farm. Your insured trainer is welcome to teach you here.
