After two years of driving around the countryside and trying to get a ‘feel’ for the various so-called horse communities around the city, I ended up in Ulster County – I bought a fixer upper on 15 acres about 10 years ago, started riding at a local barn and then 2 years later went to Kentucky and bought Poncho my dream 16.2hh hot headed gorgeous chestnut thoroughbred. Within six months of moving him up here I added a barn to the property and moved him over with a pasture mate. Fast forward 3 years and along came ‘Harlie’ a stunning 17hh Westphalian who is a complete teddy bear despite his size and presence . Even when it’s mad cold like today, snow on the ground and I’m dressed like the Michelin Man I get the greatest pleasure hearing the ‘hurry up’ whinnys at the gate as I make my way over to feed them morning and night. It’s a total luxury looking out the windows to see horses and be able to hang out with them and pop my two and a half year old son on their back (weather permitting) as they saunter around the paddock. Deep joy.

Who would have thought all this was possible, and affordable a little less than two hours from the Upper West Side of Manhattan?
