RUSTIC MAN FARM

A Vermont family farm on the hills above the Connecticut River Valley

 

We have many happy customers as we work hard to match riders and horses. 
Can we add you?

We offer horses and ponies for sale mid April - November 1. 

The winter months are way too cold, windy, icy and snowy to give our customers a pleasant visit or a safe ride. Winter can be beautiful but unpredictable on our hill: It seems all we do is plow snow, feed round bales, thaw water hydrants, get fire wood  into the house. We so look forward to seeing you in green grass season. Vershire is quite pretty then!

                                   
       Whether you are looking for that first best friend or a show partner we can help. The horses we sell are ones we would have for our own family.
