Hi, my name is Monique Saunderson. I own and operate a 130-acre horse farm named Gold Rush Farms LLC. We are proud to be one of the few farms remaining that provide trail rides on horseback along with many other services including both Western and English riding lessons, on and off site pony rides/parties, boarding, leasing, summer camp and special events to name a few.
In the heart of Fairfield County, you will find a relaxed, unique & family oriented horse farm where you can enjoy the pleasures of riding and experience a bit of the Old West too! Not to say that we don't cater to English riders as well! In addition to our Western horseback riding lesson program, we offer an English riding lesson program too! Whether you are looking to go for a relaxing trail ride, experience an instructive lesson, take your children for a pony ride, or are looking for your special horse to own or lease...you will find it here at Gold Rush Farms! We even have a summer camp which gives your children the opportunity to learn about horse care and the responsibilities that come along with owning a horse in a safe & fun atmosphere.
We're not just a barn....we're a community!
We are a unique facility in the sense that we really focus on building a strong relationship between rider and horse. Part of our teaching methods are geared towards learning how to work with the mind of the horse which allows you to develop a bond with the animal. This allows you to become not just a "pretty" looking rider but a true horseman/horsewoman.Other Amenities: Open After COVID, Groups Welcome
