Our facility offers outdoor and indoor riding rings as well as our spacious cross country course. Challenge your eventing skills or just take a stress free scenic ride.

We offer a variety of horsemanship programs for both children and adults. Our students develop confidence, commitment, and teamwork while learning the art of horsemanship.

Let us take the worries out of caring for your horse. We provide high quality feeds and outstanding service. Our large well ventilated stabling, all day turnout, 24 hour onsite care taker and convenient stable hours will make you feel right at home. Special needs are always welcome.

Whether you are just looking to pleasure ride or become a show enthusiast, we are committed to providing safe and professional riding experience. My staff and I would like the opportunity to assist you with any questions and provide information that will help you meet your goals.

Palmer River Equestrian Center is a full service facility situated on 28 acres in historic Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Formerly known as Palmer River Riding Club, the site has operated as a riding school since 1962 and before that as a dairy farm.

Just minutes from Providence, Rhode Island this charming facility stables 42 horses, offers 2 large outdoor rings, a well-groomed indoor arena, all-day turnout,and a cross-country course with over fifty jumps.

During the past 21 years,we have dedicated ourselves to establishing a place of riding which will create an environment to teach the philosophy of horsemanship. This includes combined training for the more serious rider as well as a safe and fun experience for the beginner. We believe that hard work and a dedication to goals can bring the joy of riding together with the successful relationship between horse and rider.
