Hello from Cottonwood Farm.

We are located on 600 acres of pristine horseback riding trails in eastern NC between historic New Bern and Greenville, home of the East Carolina University Pirates. Cottonwood Farm offers may diverse equestrian experiences. We have riding programs for all ages and levels of riders and have a full year round calendar.  Our instructors are experienced, knowledgeable, and motivated equestrians that are always eager to share their lives with their extended horse-loving family.  Hosting the
ECU Equestrian Hunt Seat Riding Club, we can introduce the young rider to the world of horse showing on the college level.  Our teaching focuses mainly on the English/Hunt Seat forward riding system and are in our third year of the Cottonwood farm IEA Hunter Seat Team with hopes of adding a Western Team in the future.
