Whimsy Brook Farm has professionally bred, trained, and shown horses, and instructed riders of all ages for over 40 years. They are both a family-owned and operated working farm, as well as an educational institution. They teach and model the science of equine husbandry, they farm in an environmentally friendly way, and their riding lessons are based on the classical seat, be it dressage, hunt-seat, or western pleasure.
