  • Valley Brook Equestrian Center

    Seaton Hackney Stables’ new big “little sister”, Valley Brook Equestrian Center, boasts seventy five spacious 10’ x 11’ box stalls, a small indoor arena (which we plan to enlarge), a 2/3 mile oval stone dust track perfect for exercising, interval training and harness driving, and we are setting up a total of five riding rings: Beginners, Flat Work, a 200’ x 60’ Dressage ring, a Hunt Course ring and the Indoor arena. These will ensure that riders of different levels and interests can enjoy their riding with minimal interference.

    Our volunteer program continues to be a great opportunity for young riders who love horses to deepen their knowledge and understanding, give back, and defray the cost of riding. Certification classes will be held over six weeks, running 1.5 hours long. Required for volunteers, offered as needed.
