CHESTER HILL FARM  Fairfield County's best Kept Secret for exceptional Horse training and Care.

 
 

Summer Program 


Every summer Chester Hill Farm offers a half day 6 week summer program for ages 5 - 12. The summer program offers a unique experience for riders of all levels! We provide a safe and encouraging environment leaving students with a great summer memory for years to come! Paint the ponies, bathe the ponies, participate in horseless horseshows, learn horse care, learn to tack up and more. Each Friday at 11 am we have a horse show for all the riders to show their parents their new riding abilities. Riders win their ribbons and we provide pizza for everyone to celebrate the great week!  We operate rain or shine! No riding experience is necessary for the program.
