Oak Meadow Farm
When traversing Oak Meadow Farm’s 52 verdant acres, one is struck by sweeping views of nearby produce farms. Students contribute to this idyllic pastoral scene as they learn the basics of riding in either indoor or outdoor rings. The experienced staff is led by head trainer Amy Kriwitsky who brings her individual experiences, such as her bachelor’s degree in animal science, to teaching beginners how to tack and nay effectively. Her efforts have earned Oak Meadow Farm praise in publications such as Today’s Equestrian and Chronicle of the Horse.
