The beautifully rehabilitated Seaton Hackney Stables complex is situated on a 38-acre fenced property. It includes an indoor barn and outdoor barn, 50 straight and box stalls of various sizes. All stalls are ventilated and rubber matted. Other amenities include a large shower stall, air conditioned indoor restrooms/locker, two large fenced riding rings, a dressage ring, a driving and galloping half-mile long track complete with a judges stand, and meeting/scoring room for shows, parties and special events, as well as plenty of turn-out space. A cross-country course with banks and water-jumps completes the setup. This facility is contiguous to Loantaka Brook Reservation.
The stables are leased and operated by Equishare USA LLC. Equishare offers pony programs, lessons, trail rides, special events, camps, and various equestrian activities throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
