We are so happy to be able to share our horses and therapy with everyone again. Because we work with many immune suppressed clients, we ask everyone who uses our facilities to please adhere to our face covering, social distancing, and restricted areas guidelines. A video is posted under programs as to what you can expect when you come to lessons. We are grateful for the support we have received in helping us keep a safe environment for all. If you are interested in programs, please email or call, we will respond in as timely a fashion as we can.

On a different, exciting note – we will welcome a new mare to our herd tomorrow. She is an Icelandic, 6 years old, and her name is Hekla. More about her to follow…

July 15th news

Horses, clients, and staff here at Blue Rider continue the balancing act of daily living in this new reality. We have had a good stress-less reopening phase in the last weeks. Our social distancing, face covering, hand sanitizing, and cleaning protocols seem to be working for everyone, and are something we are getting used to. The horses have to learn so much coming here, that it seems we humans can adjust as well. The horses and instructors are so grateful to be doing their jobs again! We have so many meaningful encounters every day, and are thankful for them. Desi and Pesto the barn cats are beyond ecstatic to be seeing friends and getting much needed hugs and pats. Email us if you would like to join in the fun!

News on Lessons

We are happy to announce that we are slowly starting lessons again. This is being done with very strict guidelines to help ensure the health and safety of all concerned. We are doing this by appointment only.

We will, however, not hold our summer camp this year. This has been a hard decision for us, made with very much thought about all aspects.



If you would like to be included in our lesson plan, please email info@bluerider.org  or call (413) 528-5299.

We will put you on the wait list and get you on one of our fantastic equines as soon as we can!

Be well, stay well, and see you soon.

June 4 Update

We are SO close to being able to start lessons again! Sadly, we cannot accommodate new clients yet.  Stay tuned!! Our horses are on stage 4 of pasturing, and boy, are they happy about that!

I must admit that I get pretty excited about my dinner too 😋 🐎
