NEW THIS YEAR!! HORSEMANSHIP CAMP STAYS!
Over the years folks have come to stay and study with me. Sometimes they bring their horse, sometimes I provide one. Horsemanship is a skill comprised of many different skills and is a lifetime of learning. For those who wish to learn I offer several different learning environments. This year I have officially added the horsemanship camp stays.
The package includes 3 nights at the Bunkhouse (Tues.-Thurs.), a stall and turnout for your horse, an evaluation, 4 private lessons, and full use of the facility. Anyone studying horsemanship knows time is the most valuable thing you can use to get a better understanding of your horse and improve on your skills. If you feel you would like to give horsemanship camp a try contact me and I will help you decide if it is for you.
Come visit. You will not be disappointed!

About the owner: I am a third generation horsewoman teaching horsemanship to those who wish to study.. I offer workshops, clinics, and private lessons to people seeking to understand their horses better and improve their horsemanship skills. This year I have added another learning environment to my program. HORSEMANSHIP CAMP STAYS will give you an intense dose of learning the skill of horsemanship. Please contact me if you are interested. We do not offer horseback riding or horseback riding lessons to guests. There are 2 stables within 40 minutes drive of the ranch that do. We keep several flower and vegetable gardens and spend lots of time in our kitchen at harvest time. Our dogs, Pete, a Rat Terrier male, and Bessie, an Aussie Shepard female, are fast becoming great ranch hands.My husband and I reside on the property year round. We try and get away seasonally for short vacations.
Why the Owner Chose Millerton, NY, USA:
The bunkhouse was originally Margaret's father's residence. It was converted into an apartment in 2005 and was rented to full time tenants until the spring of 2010 when we decided to turn it into a guest house for Margaret's students and a vacation rental. We've taken special care to turn it into a relaxing, private, and spacious experience. The bunkhouse is just what we would want when we get away. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, an intense study of horsemanship, a group outing, or a place to bring the family, The Bunkhouse is a welcome vacation experience. Fresh air and fresh local food including free samples of what the ranch's own garden has ready for harvest.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The bunkhouse is located at the heart of the ranch which gives you the unique sense of being at the hub of activities while affording privacy. The views from each window are different ranging from horses grazing in pastures, rolling hills and farmland, distant mountains, and the property's gardens and woodland. A walk around the fence lines offers spectacular views of the area farms and woodlands Hike, bike, or cross country ski on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail located less than a mile from the ranch. The trail can take you right into the heart of Millerton or Amenia. The Bunkhouse is only 3.5 miles from the towns of Amenia and Millerton, NY, and Sharon, CT
