Welcome to our information about life in Newtown, CT!

Horses are a part of life here in Newtown. It’s not uncommon to see people in riding clothes (boots and all) or to see horses around town. There are many horse trails in town – some that cross privately owned land & some follow the old railroad beds. I am not a rider; however, I understand from those who do ride that the trails in Newtown are very extensive and connect into Monroe and Brookfield.

Newtown Bridle Land Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of equestrian and passive recreation trails so unique to rural character of Newtown, CT. They have been helpful when I’ve called seeking information about horse related “things” in town.

The Second Company Governor’s Horse Guard is located in Newtown. They are celebrating 200 years of history this year. Originally formed in 1808 to “attend upon and escort the Governor in times of peace and war, the 2CGHG now is part of the organized militia of the State of Connecticut, under the direction of the Governor and the National Guard. They often ride in ceremonies, but still do train. The public is always welcome to visit during regular drill hours or events.

Some of the horse facilities in town include:

Redgate Farms located at 50 Poverty Hollow Road, Newtown
Astor Place Show Stables located at 50 Poverty Hollow Road, Newtown
Fox Ridge Farm located at 39 Aunt Park Lane, Newtown
Rabbit Hill Farm at The Ridge Equestrian Center, 163 Papoose Hill Road, Newtown
Zoar Ridge Stables located at 5 Morgan Drive, Sandy Hook
There are many private horse properties in Newtown and Sandy Hook where one can board their horse(s). Horse riding lessons are given at different facilities and are even offered through the Parks and Recreation Program.
