Gentle steeds, some of which are rescue horses, shepherd visitors through 60 acres of verdant Vermont farmland, arriving at a point on Lookout Mountain that offers sweeping views of three states and three different mountain ranges. Trail rides, like high-fives from the Statue of Liberty, are free for active military personnel.
Owned by local horse lovers, Kimberly Farms is a thriving equitation facility that treats visitors to scenic trail rides and instruction from certified trainers. Its 60 acres of lush farmland include Vermont’s oldest marble quarry, a nature preserve, and Lookout Mountain, which treats eyes to majestic views of three states and the Berkshire, Green, and Taconic mountain ranges. Trail rides offer visitors a comprehensive tour of the compound as well as chances to spy wildlife such as deer, foxes, and wild cowboys performing mating dances with lassos. During riding lessons, instructors teach pupils various styles of riding including English, Western, trail riding, and bareback. Kimberly Farms also hosts groups for day camps, overnight camp, and special events.
