Big River Barn
Big River Barn specializes exclusively on riding on trail. They ride year-’round on the spectacularly beautiful and extensive trail system that spans Old Westbury, Brookville, and Muttontown. Located in central Nassau County, a mere half-hour from Manhattan (without traffic), it feels more like being far away upstate.
They offer trail rides on their own private horses. They aren’t hacks or school horses, they are their own much loved, pampered, well-behaved, and experienced horses, and they love to share them with people. They have an Arabian, several Thoroughbreds, and a Quarter Horse; horses good for beginners, or for riders wanting more of a challenge. Their tack is English. Riders of all levels are welcome, from rank beginners to experienced riders. Children 12 years and older are welcome.
Rides last at least 1 1/4 hours and also schedule longer rides: 2 1/2 hours, and 4+ hours. They ride during the day and in the evening, on weekdays and all weekend. Sunset rides are spectacular — come by after work.
