Biscuit Hill Farm LLC is a unique horse farm combining an impressive equestrian facility with the beauty and warmth of the hill towns of rural western Massachusetts. The 28-acre farm is located in Shelburne, Massachusetts, just off the famous Mohawk Trail, a few miles from the historic town of Shelburne Falls. It boasts one of the largest privately owned indoor arenas in the area with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. We offer boarding, training, showing, horse sales and lessons on your own horse or one of our 20 experienced school horses.
The farm opened in 2000 when we determined that there was a need in the area for a high-quality riding program where riders and horses could reach their full potential in an atmosphere that emphasized family and community. We wanted to provide an environment in which horses would be treated as individuals and, in addition to their structured training program, be given plenty of time to play outside. The result was Biscuit Hill Farm. We have a wonderful group of dedicated employees and loyal clients, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years.
Our lesson program is unsurpassed. We have a variety of competent, safe school horses that can accommodate any level of rider. Our experienced training staff, comprised of Beth Manning, Mary Jane Whitcomb, Susan Duncan, Caitlin Manning and Kay Ward, offers lessons in hunters, jumpers, equitation, dressage, eventing and basic horsemanship. We have the means to introduce new riders to the sport in a safe, fun environment as well as the expertise to provide more advanced riders with the skills necessary for higher-level training and competition.
Biscuit Hill students are very successful at horse shows as well as events. Students compete regularly in all levels at hunter/jumper/equitation shows, events from Beginner Novice through Preliminary and Dressage shows. Riders may compete on their own horses or on one of our experienced school horses. We are home to the Amherst College Equestrian Team, which competes regularly at IHSA shows in our area. Competition, however, is only one aspect of our multifaceted business and we have many students that do not show. We welcome all riders regardless of ability and experience.
