Riding Activities


Seaton Hackney Stables is currently open for lessons. We offer half hour and
one hour private lessons and observe all precautionary Covid 19 measures.
Riders are required to wear a mask to the facility and on the property
(which can be lowered while mounted during the lesson time). Riders and
guests are not permitted on the property other than during the lesson time.
Parents / Guardians are permitted to view lessons observing all social
distancing and COVID 19 measures. We are able to offer trail rides. All
lessons must be scheduled with calling the office at 973-644-3355. SHS
wishes everyone well and to be safe.

Seaton Hackney Stables offers private, semi-private and group lessons for our riders who want more flexibility with scheduling.  Private lessons are an ideal way for students to have one-on-one instruction which provides the rider the opportunity to focus on developing their strengths and correcting their weaknesses.


Instructors work closely with their students, adjusting and advancing the course of study based on each unique rider’s needs.


Our team of instructors specializes in all levels of riding for a multitude of disciplines including English, Hunter Jumper, Equitation, Western, Dressage and Cross Country.


Seaton Hackney Stables houses over 35 horses in order to address a variety of skill levels. As the riders progress through the levels and acquire new skills or explore different disciplines, Seaton Hackney Stables can provide horses that accommodate the riders’ unique needs.


We ask all riders to schedule their lessons in advance and arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time. Riders must wear ASTM approved helmets (we can provide at No Charge) along with the proper footwear.


As our horses are all fitted for their own saddles, we cannot accommodate rider owned saddles, unless approved by management.


For the lesson program, we do offer Riding cards at a discounted rate.


Riders also have the option of Equisharing (leasing) horses in order to continue fine-tuning their riding skills.
