Friendship Equestrian Center
Built in 2003, Friendship Equestrian Center (aka FEC) is a modern riding facility nestled in the historic Hudson Valley. FEC is just minutes from the hamlet of Claverack, NY. Home to Jess Riley Dressage and Horsemanship and Hudson on Horseback Trail Riding, this scenic location is close to Albany, HITS Saugerties, Great Barrington MA, and Rhinebeck NY and is just minutes from the NYS thruway as well as the Taconic State Parkway. Friendship Equestrian Center boasts a large (80'x200') BRIGHT indoor with brand new Lightfoot footing (it's fabulous!), a large sand outdoor arena (150'x220'), miles of trails, ample grass turnout, and many other amenities.
Friendship Equestrian Center is a year round facility. The FEC owners and staff take pride in updating and renewing the facility on a regular basis. Recent upgrades have included the replacement of the indoor arena, the indoor and outdoor arena footing and fencing around the outdoor arena.
FEC is adjacent to the rail trail and offers miles of trails with a variety of terrain. Trails are suitable for a pleasant ride or an athletic adventure.
The owners of Friendship Equestrian Center live on the facility year round and are accomplished equestrians. Care is taken to maintain the safety of the grounds on a regular basis. Updates to the facility have been occurring regularly to help provide a welcome experience for all horses and riders.
