A great place to learn to ride! I have been riding at Triton for 4 years and have learned so much! So many great horses and amazing trainers! They also go to a lot of away shows, as well as shows at the barn every month during the show season. Has a great atmosphere and all the people are very nice and friendly! Overall a great barn for a rider of any age or level :)

This is the best place to grow up; surrounded by wonderful people and horses. I have been riding with Triton for almost 20 years and have had amazing success with Shep and Megan by my side. This is a great place for a serious competitor and for someone wanting to learn what it is to ride and love horses.

We have been very happy with Triton Stables. The trainers are extremely encouraging with children of all ages, from the early beginners to high school kids honing their jumping skills. I have two children at Triton and continue to spread the word of what a great barn Triton is.

We love Triton Stables! We found this place using a coupon, but have stayed for the last seven year because we can't imagine going anywhere else. Not only did my daughter learn how to ride and show, but she learned how to be good horse person as well. I love that they stress the importance of proper riding techniques, care of horses, and barn responsibilities. The trainers, Shep Welles and Megan Ward-Trump, encourage these young people to have a strong empathy for the horses they ride and foster a life long love of the sport. From pony rides, to just learning to ride, to going all the way to Pony or Medal finals, this place is for you if you love ponies and horses! It is the best place to learn to ride and show, make life long friendships, and enjoy horses 24/7. I am also so excited for their EIRA, IEA, and SIRA teams (young kids, youth/teen, adult) that teaches the kids teamwork and good sportsmanship.

We love Triton! This is a barn that doesn't just teach you how to ride, it teaches you about the horses you're riding... from grooming and tacking to summer camps that teach kids about what the horses eat and how to identify colic. The training program is welcoming for students of all ages and skill levels - including adults who either want to try out riding for the first time, or get back into it. This is also a fantastic barn for getting into showing! Triton regularly hosts shows and has very reasonable prices for transport to/coaching at away shows. There's also an IEA Riding Team for kids in Middle and High School, a great opportunity for kids who don't have a horse of their own to be able to show. Did I mention that Triton also hosts shows, and will allow students to ride school horses in those shows? All in all, the atmosphere is friendly and inviting, the trainers are fantastic, and the barn is like a home away from home.
