More About PWF
Whether you are looking to ride a horse for the first time or go straight into the show ring we would love to have you be a part of our farm.
Our farm is located in Sandown NH on 6 acres equipped with a five stall barn with grooming area, large riding arena and several large paddocks with run-in sheds.
We have a great lesson program with our focus on horsemanship and building a solid foundation with the horses. We teach hunter, jumper, balance seat and polo lessons for students of all ages. We also do trail rides and attend several horse shows each year with our students.
We are also home to the Hooves, Paws & Claws 4-H club and have many other programs for children such as the Horse Care Club, Summer Workshop Series, Work to Ride program and Summer Camp Series.
We strive to have our horses live as naturally as possible and we take a holistic approach to care whenever possible. Our own horses (and healthy rescue horses) live outside 24/7 with shelter and have access to hay at all times. We feed small amounts of grain several times a day and use natural products whenever possible. If you spend enough time here, you will get to know our horse's acupuncturist and chiropractor well too!
We privately save a small number (1-3) of needy horses from less than deseriable conditions. Our horses come from neglectful homes, horse slaughter auctions, or kill pens. Once at our farm we evaluate the horses and depedending on their needs, rehab or train them in hopes of finding them a happy forever homes. We also have several permanent members of the farm that were direct saves from auctions and kill pens. Many of these horses go on to be lesson horses, show horses or polo horses. We welcome our students and friends to help with the care of these horses.
