About Us

Mead Farm is the oldest horse riding establishment in Stamford with a history dating back to 1928. As a family-run business, we offer boarding, leasing, sales, seasonal programs and year-round lessons for children and adults.  From the first time rider to the more advanced, our instructors provide a comprehensive and challenging riding experience within a casual atmosphere. Mead Farm offers private and group lessons designed for those who want the full hands-on equestrian experience. Mead Farm has expanded its offerings to include programs through local Recreation and Parks Departments, as well as other organizations. 

Children Riding Horse

Mission Statement

Mead Farm believes that riding doesn’t start when you sit in the saddle and end when you dismount. Our instruction is focused on strengthening each rider’s foundation and helping him/her advance in their riding. Riders also have the opportunity to learn everything from grooming and tacking to complete horse care.  Mead Farm provides year-round activities that create memories lasting a lifetime.


Our instructors have the experience, knowledge, and skill to teach you to ride a horse comfortably and with confidence. Mead Farm reserves the right to substitute a comparable instructor without prior notification.

GRTA Trail System

A distinctive feature is our access to over 170 miles of continuous horseback riding trails that make their way through Stamford and Greenwich. The GRTA is dedicated to preserving and maintaining the century-old system of trails, encouraging horseback riding and protecting the ever precious open space in backcountry.
