Established in 1986, Maplewood Farm is a state of the art equestrian facility set on more than 20 acres in the beautiful horse country of Berlin Massachusetts.
Located only 15 minutes from Worcester, 20 minutes from Acton and 40 minutes from Boston, places Maplewood in a central location.
Maplewood is surrounded by conservation land, fox hunting trails, nearby orchards and offers miles of varied trails.
Educating our students how to care for horses and equipment gives
us great pride. Horsemanship teaches the students a skill in how different external forces affect an animal.
Winning ribbons is great, however blue ribbons awarded at top rated shows are not easy to come by. Learning how to appreciate the wins and learn from losses, develops great sportsmanship.
We offer outstanding instruction year-round, and personal attention to achieve your riding goals.
Our customers come from both near and far, all looking to make a connection with their horse. Setting goals to achieve sucess in both everyday riding and away at horse shows.
All riders interested in progressing beyond weekly lessons should talk to their instructor or Tamara Johnston. We are happy to go over all the costs and etiquette involved in taking your riding career to the next step.
Maplewood's quiet country setting offers a pleasant experience for all. We are a boutique farm with limited stalls and ample turnout. Thus offering highly personalized service.
Tamara Johnston, Head Trainer and Owner of Maplewood Farm, has developed one of the premier training facilities in the area. Tamara has focused on helping her students achieve their personal riding goals and become more knowledgeable equestrians. Her intuitive and highly-individualized approach to teaching allows each student to progress at their own pace.
Our instructors focus on the needs of our riders and tailor each lesson with that in mind. They provide complete instruction from the basics of horse care and ground manners to competitive horse showing. Students learn skills both on and off the horse and develop into safe, confident, and knowledgeable riders.
Maplewood is also home to the Maplewood Farm IEA and Worcester State University IHSA teams.
