Bring Your Human Partner Too

For couples where spousal interests may not be horse centric our local Stamford Golf Course is open to the public, and there are a myriad of other opportunities for sports and other adventures nearby including activities on the water, zip lining, mountain biking etc. There is a reason the Catskills has been known for many decades as the 'playground of New Yorkers" and that is never more true than today. Please ask us for suggestions.
