Harlequin Stables has some exciting news! We have recently received a grant that has allowed us to expand our farm composting operations. In support of the community during these difficult times, Harlequin Stables is offering free farm-made compost this September (while supplies last). Donations are always welcome and appreciated. A boost for your fall garden, our compost is made from the shavings, hay, and of course manure generated by the farm's day-to-day operations. Please text or call 781-603-5010 to coordinate safe physically distanced pickup as the farm is operating under strict COVID-19 guidelines. Please bring your own shovel and buckets. All visitors are required to wear a mask while on the property. Harlequin Stables thanks you for your help to keep our farm safe! Harlequin Stables offers lessons for children and adults of all levels, boarding, summer horsemanship sessions, and occasionally pony rides. Registration for fall lessons is underway and spots are filling up fast! If you are interested in lessons and would like to be placed on our waitlist, please fill out our online waitlist registration form which can be found on our website (either on our lesson page or our contact us page). We look forward to seeing you for compost pickup, lessons, or more! Stay safe!
Compost in the making!
Compost ready for pick-up!
Below are Harlequin's COVID-19 Protocols for our Summer Horsemanship Sessions. Please read over them carefully before the start of your session. We will also be sending out a more detailed email with more COVID-19 related information for session participants.
We are happy to announce that we are in the midst of preparing to reopen. Please look over the COVID-19 guidelines and safety protocols in the link below. More updates and information to come soon!
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Going for a ride and staying safe - equipped with a mask and gloves :)
Sadly, Harlequin is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 situation. Please note that we are still open to boarders by appointment. All riding lessons are canceled until it is safe for us to meet again. We are still accepting new students for lessons when we open. The horses miss all of your love, attention, and especially the grooming. For now, keep building up your arm muscles for some serious grooming when we reopen for riding lessons.
We are especially warmed by all your generosity and kindness. Thank you to everyone who has supported all the horses during this difficult time! If you would like to make a contribution to help with the expenses of feeding and caring for our horses and ponies, please visit our GoFundMe page or our Custom Ink Apparel Fundraiser by clicking the links below.
