Ride Overview

Nestled in the rolling hills of hunt country in the Hudson Valley of NY, Rounded Crest Farm offers riders of all ages and abilities the chance to “have it all”. Set in a pastoral area, the farm has large indoor and outdoor arenas as well as a small field of natural obstacles. And for riders that want to get out of the arena, there are miles of wide open groomed trails for hacking. You’ll spend the week with Ericka Rose – the “Galloping Guru”, she is a true gem, and a fabulous resource on all matters related to riding and horsemanship.

Daily instruction is tailored to meet the goals of the rider and offered by both Ericka and her incredible team. A few days at Rounded Crest Farm find most riders happy, tired and with clear breakthroughs in their progress. Her group of 50+ horses are well schooled and fun

Ericka has over 30 years of professional riding, showing, foxhunting and working with clients and is a member of several hunts on the east coast. The program offers lessons in flatwork/dressage, jumping, XC and trail riding. Fox hunting – or learn to fox hunt programs are also available.

This program is offered on a 5 day basis: Monday-Friday; or on a 3 day basis: Friday-Sunday. Accommodations are not included but we are happy to help with recommendations!
