Ride A Morgan

The 2020 Equine Affaire has transitioned to a virtual event. Join us online on November 12-15, 2020 for a Virtual Equine Affaire experience.

RIDE A MORGAN for the first time … or the first time in a long time! Equine Affaire is partnering with New England Morgan and Lingering Hills Stables to provide opportunities for new and aspiring horse lovers to have their first encounter with a horse—to learn about the basics of horses, horse care, horsemanship, and actually ride a Morgan horse for the first time. Representatives will provide basic instruction and seasoned lesson horses in the warmup arena adjacent to C Barn. Interested first-time or returning riders must sign up in advance at the New England Morgan booth in the Breed Pavilion.

Newcomer rides will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday, November 9th, from 3:15pm-4:45pm. Participation in this program is free with paid admission to Equine Affaire. Children must be at least 5 years old to participate. Ages 5 and over will be able to brush or interact with the horses, while ages 6 and over will be able to ride the horses. For safety, minors do need to be accompanied by an adult.
