Facilities

  In the past year we have paved the aisles of the Dream Arena and New Addition. The classroom,tack room, and feed room are now heated by the outdoor wood boiler. Mark retired from Hyde-Stone in Dec. 2016 and has done a million and 1 small upgrades/fixings and improvements since then. We will soon be starting on larger projects. It is so nice to have a handy fix it man here 24/7.


The Dream Arena

  

The Dream Arena is our 72' by 172' indoor with sand footing. It has 5 attached box stalls with drop down doors and Nelson automatic waterers. The Dream Arena has its own heated tackroom and bathroom.



Stabling Area and Small Indoor
                        

Our main barn houses a large heated tackroom, bathroom, two classrooms, and a stabling area.

The stabling area offers six cross-tie stations and five rubber-matted stalls. It is conveniently located between the tackroom and small indoor riding arena, making it a great and safe place for grooming, tacking, lesson prep, and unmounted instructional learning. 

We have a refrigerator for boarder/student use, along with a Keurig and snack machine.

The New Addition houses ten box stalls with rubber mats and drop-down doors. It has it's own heated tackroom and 2 sets of crossties. 

The Mare Barn
The Mare Barn contains 12 spacious rubber-matted box stalls.

Outdoor Rings

Ring #1 has sand footing and is 156' by 312'.










Ring #2 is grass (156’ x 312’) and usually holds a dressage arena and gaming lanes.







Ring #3 is a grass show jumping ring (200' x 260'). We have 2 full sets of show jumps.






Laneway to Outdoor Rings and Paddocks
We have a $16,000 laneway which runs parallel to Post Road and makes getting to the rings and front paddocks very easy and mud-free!

Cross-Country Courses
We have two cross country courses with jumps ranging from 18 inches to 3’ (including a bank complex and ditch). The first course is adjacent to the Sugar Bush, while the other course is located at 136 Post Road. We add and expand the course and jump selection yearly. This year, we will be building training-level obstacles.

                       
                
 
           
Sugar Bush

The Sugar Bush is located adjacent to our parking lot. It has some trail obstacles and jumps along its paths. It proves to be a great first "trail" or cross-country experience for our younger riders and is a nice place for students to cool out their horses/ponies after lessons. Every year, our students enjoy hunting Easter Eggs in the Sugar Bush.











Trails and Fields
We have some nice trails along the creek, and through the woods. There is always plenty of riding to be done around the fields. In the winter, we try to maintain a groomed track for sleighing and riding.
 
                           
                      

The Grey Barns

The Grey Barns are located at 136 Post Road. The barn set furthest back from the road has 5 stalls, tackroom and a large run-in. There are also three large grass paddocks at this location.


Fly control:
 During the summer months, HDA uses all natural “Fly Predators” to virtually eliminate house/stable/face flies on the farm. This drastically reduces the amount of fly spray needed. It also saves wear and tear on the horses feet and legs.
