Our Roots

A great rider, teacher, and horseman, Doris Eddy traveled throughout New England to learn from the exceptional riders of her day and then returned to her Vermont home to establish her riding school. 

Doris Eddy, who was born on the farm in 1918, inherited the farm from her father in 1956 and turned it into one of Vermont's first riding schools.The farmstead consists of a farmhouse and several barns that are listed on the Vermont Historic Register as well as an indoor riding arena that was erected by Doris Eddy in the 1970's. 

Doris trained and schooled horses and taught excellence in horsemanship at the Eddy Farm until her death in 1998.

The Eddy Farm School has built its program on the innovative teaching techniques of the late Doris Eddy.

 Today, The Eddy Farm School continues with this tradition by focusing on fostering relationships that are mutually beneficial for horse and rider.
