The Commonwealth of Massachusetts licenses rental stables and riding schools to ensure the health and safety of horses and riders. Although We are a private home site stable, any for-profit hire of horses requires licensing. The licensing period extends from April 1 through March 31 of each year. Divinity Farm is a private home stable.  Anyone person knows the expense of horses, especially in this economy. Income generated from Divinity's programs goes directly into  upkeep of horses, vet bills, feed & nutrition always maintaining a negative income ratio. Divinity Farm is working toward a non-profit status.  
The basis of our riding instruction is basic dressage which is the foundation of all our training. Our regular client's & Student's particularly value this fact. Our horses & ponies are specifically trained for their purpose of all programs, lessons and levels.
