I attended Morning Star Farm about fifteen years ago when I first got into riding. It was the first place I rode and also where I learned everything I know today. I looked forward to my weekly time spent there and spending time with all of the horses. Because of Judy and the instructors I worked my way up to showing and jumping, two of my favorite things. I still have every ribbon I won from there. Growing up, moving and life got in the way and I wandered away from horseback riding, but always missed it. More recently I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Being around horses and even the thought of riding made me so uneasy I never thought I'd enjoy it again. One day out of sheer nostalgia I looked up the farm on Facebook. I found their page and website and found myself remembering the old lessons and weekends spent there. I got into contact with Judy and we spoke about everything. She was so incredibly kind and understanding. I began to get excited about horses and riding again. I now work with Judy and Shelly and I couldn't be happier. I am able to once again do something that I love and be around others who are so caring and helpful. They have helped me so much and I look forward to every moment with them. Shelly is incredible to watch in her lessons and how wonderful she is to each and every child under her care. Everyone here absolutely loves what they do and it shows. The horses and ponies are very well behaved and cared for. Judy and Shelly always have everyone's best interest in mind. I am so thankful that I took the chance and can once again do something that I love with people who enjoy it as much as I do. I look forward to many

Morning star farms, has helped my daughter in a way no one will ever understand, they offer therapy riding as well as regular riding, and my daughter had lost a sibling, she was very depressed and I was running out of resources to try and help her, I found morning star farm, and reached out to the owner Judy. She took the time to listen and understand what I was dealing with, she invited Haley to try the therapy riding. Within weeks i saw a dramatic change in my child's overall attitude and behavior, she was turning around!! This farm did more then teach my daughter how to ride and care for horses, they taught her how to overcome a dramatic grief and how to continue on with life and how to have an amazing outlook on the world!! Morning star farms is the amazing and i would recommend them 1,000 times everyday to anyone looking to teach there child not only how to ride, but how to develop everlasting friendships!!

My daughter has been going here for years. The owners are tremendously caring. They ensure not only that the children know how to ride, but also how to take care of the horses, which creates a beautiful bond between them and the horses. Can't say enough about how much my children have enjoyed riding here. Judith Heim

I am giving Morning Star Farm 5 Stars. But please know I would give them a hundred if I could. I met Judy, Shelly and Katelyn one year ago. My daughter was having such a hard time. She suffered severely for 3 years from depression and anxiety and it was one of the toughest years for us. Becoming a part of the farm volunteering and riding really helped my daughter grow a bond that is not very easy for her to do. I too grew a bond with these woman. I have never witnessed such dedication, compassion and loyalty! <3 for the animals on the farm around the farm whether it be a bird or bug , for the horses! for the people. I can not give thanks enough! With so many programs available for children of all ages and all special needs. My hundred stars go out to anyone who is in need for a safe place to watch their children grow! Thanks again Morning Star Farm for all your love <3

I have four girls that ride at Morning Star farm and we love Ms. Shelly and Ms. Judy. My girls take riding lessons and attend their camp. There farm is friendly, horses well cared for, instructions are individualized for our girls, and it is obvious that they care about both the kids and the animals. Our girls are becoming stronger more independent girls due to the lessons at the farm and we are grateful.

Morning Star Farm has become a very happy part of our weeks! Sofia looks forward to her lessons and it is awesome that every second lesson of the week they allow my husband or me to ride with her!! It has become a great opportunity for daddy-daughter bonding!! Shelley, Judy, and the rest of the gang truly make us feel like part of the family.

We just love this farm. The owner, Judy, and her daughter, Shelly, are just wonderful! They are patient, gentle, caring and always willing to take time and answer my children's MANY questions. I ride, along with my 3-year old and 8-year old, and we all look forward to the days when we can ride. It is the highlight of our week! They also offer a wonderful horsemanship program that allows children to get some hands on experience with the care and grooming of the horses. Our family is so grateful that we have found this this farm and these wonderful women. They truly feel like family to us.

The Therapeutic Horseback Riding program at Morning Star has worked wonders for our son Arthur. The love, kindness and support Arthur gets from his weekly classes with Judy, Shelly and of course, Zip the Horse are just the thing to build self-confidence and a sense of balance and peace. We are documenting the program's progress on Arthur's facebook page...please have a look. And by the way...the caring doesn't stop after the lesson is over. The team lets Arthur visit the barn, the stalls, their goats, and great dogs. It is the perfect place for riders of all ages and abilities to really connect with the mystical being called Horse. A well named farm. If you take a class here...you will truly feel "like a morning star”

I'd just like to thank Judy and Shelly for making my daughters horse riding experience a great one. We were at the farm for 4 years, and in that time she learned so much about horses and herself! I don't believe she ever wouldn't gotten on a horse if it wasn't for Shelly and all her patience. She put her heart and soul into my daughter(s) and we will always love her. Ready with a big hug, kind words and lots of encouragement is how every lesson started, no matter what was going on with her that day. Thanks ladies. You really know how to touch peoples lives!!

I have been to many barns since I was a kid and Judy and Shelly are the best. They make you feel like 
family. The atmosphere is relaxed and  they both love what they do. My 
daughter, who is 7 has major anxiety, which they make her feel safe and 
there is no pressure. My other daughter, who is 5, will start lessons in the fall. She has no muscle tone. Their therapeutic program will help 
her a lot. I can't say enough about them. We will be with them for a 
long time. There is no better place for a child to ride.

5 STAR REVIEW

I started bringing my daughter to morning star farms back in June 2011. My daughter was 3 yrs old and wanted to ride a horse. Based on a reccomendation from a friend we tried out the farm. From that first day we were treated like family. Everyone was helpful, positive and loving. Shelly, our instructor went out of her way for my daughter. Later I realized that she does this for everyone. She loves what she does and she really loves working with the younger kids. My daughter has found a real love in riding and this has been such a great experience for all of us. My younger daughter cannot wait to start riding and I admit that now I want to start riding come the spring. It will be such a great family activity and I can thank everyone from morning star farms for making it happen.

If you are looking for riding instructions for a young child or disabled adult, this is the place to go to. Judy and Shelley are very professional and treat everyone like family. The horses are well-kept and the landscape is serene. On a warm day while watching your child riding, it is easy to drift into another world of peace and tranquility. This is the third year we have enrolled our disabled son in riding lessons to improve his balance and stamina. He has improved each year to his delight. I give Morningstar five stars as they earned the highest rating with their excellent handling of all functions of a horse riding farm.

 



 

My daughter and I ride and board a horse at Morningstar farm. Judy and Shelly take very good care of all the horses. When I see other farms with their horses out in the fields in bitter cold, rain, snow, ice I know that my horse is in her clean stall with pently of  feed, hay, warmth and water. Judy and Shelly are very down to earth  people and treat you like family. They put their heart into taking care of the horses and teaching childern and adults how to care of  a horse and how to ride.They have an excellent riding program, Morningstar Farm Sunday horsemanship riding progarm. The fee is very reasonable for amount of time and what they learn at the farm.This is the third riding school I have been to and it is the best. I have never owned a horse before after being at the farm for three years my daughter and I felt that what we learned from Judy and Shelly about horses we were ready to own one and they are always there to help us.They gave my daughter and I the confidence we needed to succeed as riders and owners.

We have been so pleased with our riding experience at Morning Star Farm. When my daughter participated in an out of state horse camp at age 5 and loved it, I knew we had to find a barn in Sussex to continue riding and horsemanship. Judy and Shelly were willing to try her in a few lessons and from there decided she would do well in horsemanship. Erin was so excited to work with the older girls. Now she has been riding for 2.5 years, and Judy, Shelly and the staff at the farm have become family. My 5 year old has also started riding and Shelly has a knack for bringing him out of his shell. The farm is safe and horses mild mannered  and well kept and the overall cost is the lowest in the county. I would highly recommend Morning Star Farm to anyone interested in riding. This farm is wonderful!

I recently graduated from Centenary College with a concentration in riding instruction and training. . I have excellent knowledge of horses, horse care and instruction.  I am now working at Morning Star Farm for two years.  Not only do I work here at Morning Star Farm, but I also grew up here.  I bought my first horse from Judy when I was 8 years old and learned to love and respect people and animals alike.  Morning Star Farm not only gives great instruction but has some of the best teachers one could ask for and excellent horses that walk these grounds. I am honored to teach lessons on some of the kindest, safest, and well behaved horses there are. All of these horses are well cared for and are treated with the most respect because to us they are part of a family not just a pet. Judy, Shelly and myself take a lot of pride in what we do and get much enjoyment in sharing the horse world with our students.  The smile on their faces and watching them advance means everything to us.

I have been a part of Morning Star Farm Riding Academy and Therapeutic Riding Center for over two years and I board my horse and ride at the farm.   Morning Star Farm is more than a Riding Academy and Therapeutic Riding Center, it is a family.  Having been a Preschool and Kindergarten teacher for over 30 years I have watched the children and adults who ride at the farm  learn and grow with love and understanding.  The experience is more than just riding and advancing ones skills, it is also about understanding horses, their care, their health, safety for horse and rider, and all the components of horsemanship.  I have seen all ages in the Therapeutic Riding Center progress beyond the limited expectations set for them by others because of the caring and nurturing of the owners and staff.  I have seen the close relationships and the camaraderie that exists between owners, instructors, and the students and their families that is  evident not just at the beautiful Christmas Party and the fabulous Summer Picnic but throughout the entire year.  Morning Star Farm doesn’t just offer the opportunity to be an accomplished rider, it offers the opportunity to experience and learn all that horsemanship encompasses in a fun and loving way.   Liz B


I believe Morning Star Farm popped up in my life for a reason.  Surviving high-school isn’t easy, and they have served as a salvation for me where I could be around horses, the only thing that keeps me sane.  Unlike most people, I love my job because it makes you more responsible and a better person.  My job consists of assisting lessons, tacking and untacking horses, feeding, haying, watering, grooming, and taking horses in.  I have been volunteering with their amazing Therapy Riding Program; I am witness to the progress being made in each child.  This is evident on every mother and father’s face.  The horses are so experienced and well-mannered.  Not only this, I have the privilege to ride here as well.  The riding program is excellent, in which you learn to perfect the craft of horse-back riding and gain horse experience as well.  It is preparing me for riding in college.  But with this, I could not be around people who love their job as much as the people at MSF do.  To me, it is such a nice atmosphere where there is no presumptuousness or judgment of experience level.  I have been riding at other stables, and this environment is one-of-a-kind that no other stable has.  It doesn’t matter who you are or how much your family makes.  It is about the determination to want to ride, to be a better rider, and for the ones who just have a love for horses.  Throughout my whole riding experience, Morning Star Farm is my first choice.

I passed the farm on a cold morning as I took a sick kiddo to the Dr. The horses were all blanketed, clustered around huge rounds of hay and it made me think of how many life changing hours we've spent at Morning Star. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of working on the farm and taking lessons. This farm does so much more than teach riding lessons, they teach life lessons. By letting the children help feed, water and clean the stalls every day, you've taught them not only how to care for the horses, but perseverance in hard work, pride in a job well done, patience in waiting their turns (and with the horses), responsibility and charity in caring for the rescue horses that need extra love and attention. You've taught them the right ethics of a good life by your example of hard work and care, no matter the conditions. Every day these virtues are seen, too, with the love that the owners share for the horses and the farm. I never quite understood why being a part of a horse farm was considered therapeutic, but now I do. Horse riding lessons are not only about riding horses--and if they were that would be enough, but they encompass so much more, and Judy and her team are the best teachers a student could ask for. Without hesitation I recommend Morning Star Farm to all, and know that they will have the same experience we have had.

Simply the Best !!!! If you are looking for a caring, nurturing fully rounded experience for your child, Morningstar is the place. Those who have been fortunate enough to have found Judy and Shelly will undoubtedly feel blessed know them. After raising two girls around horses and farms, we know there are times as part of growing they tend to get ahead of themselves.. Judy has displayed on many occasions a compromise, always for the greater good of the children which is an artform. I would describe the experience at Morningstar Farm as much more than horsemanship, it will evolve into a child that will understand horsemanship, responsiblilty, dedication that all are terrific life character traits, even more important as they grow and are surrounded by other influences. I am proud of the people that my daughters have become and I believe wholeheartedly that Morningstar played an important part in help building their character.Thank You Judy & Shelly!!!

WONDERFUL!! There is nothing more important or precious to us than our four children and when we started them riding at Morning Star we realized that we had found a place and people who felt the same way about them. They are receiving exemplary training in all areas of horsemanship and were quickly comfortable riding and caring for horses. They LOVE going for their lessons and even ride throughout the winter months because they simply can't imagine not being at the farm! Shelly and Judy are not only wonderful instructors and people they are an invaluable member of the Fredon community and have created the most open and caring environment on their farm! It is truly a unique and wonderful place and anyone would be lucky to ride and spend time there.....even our Pop-Pop has fallen in love with the farm and at age 71 has begun taking his own lessons!

"When my 4 year old daughter told me she wanted to ride a horse, we were blessed to find Morning Star Farm." It was my first phone call and only call I made. She has been riding there more than 1 year now and we can't imagine being anywhere else."

"The Farm is a beautiful, serene place that welcomes you from the moment you arrive. It is not only the lovliness of the farm that draws you in; it is the compassion of the people as well."

"From the moment my daughter started her lessons, it was as if her instructor, Shelly had know her forever. Shelly is patient and kind and understood what my daughter needed to succeed. The skills she has learned over the pasto year and a half are overwhelming. I thank Shelly for giving her the confience she needed to come out of her shell" "You can bring your children to Morning Star Farm to learn to ride and the experience they have ill give them so much more".

My Favorite Place To Be!
By Lila - Sep 26, 2010

I started riding here four years ago with a friend, and we love it as much now as we did then. I have learned not only to ride to cross rails but also horse care, preventative care and respect for all the animals and the riders. Shelly and Judy are really amazing, they spend so much time with me, I can just hang out when I want to at the farm, its like a big family, pick my horse to ride each week, swim during the summer and basically just have the best time ever. I can't wait to be there especially to ride Apache! I love Apache!! I would love to work there when I am old enough and help teach the classes and care for the horses. I just love Morning Star and tell everybody they should spend time there. Its a wonderful place to be!!



Our Second Home
By c_lummer - Oct 9, 2010

My sister & I have been riding & working at Morning Star for 11 years now—what an incredible place. There are no words to describe how thankful we are to Judy & Shelly for their kindness, generosity, & instruction over the years. They don't just open up their farm to you but also their home. There are many days we have spent from 8 in the morning to 9 at night with the horses and I can honestly say finding another farm as giving as this one would be near impossible. We have met so many wonderful friends & horses growing up there. The horses are bomb-proof; they are the perfect horses to start out riding on & they are safe enough that many do therapeutic. That combined with incredible instructors has allowed us to learn how to ride & handle horses in a safe & fun environment. We have so many memories from lessons, shows, riding in the fields & trails around the farm, Paulinskill, & just relaxing with the horses. I cant think of another farm that would have prepared us for college equestrian teams better than msf. Since we have gone to college, we both have ridden at different farms in NY and DE and none of them even compare to morning star in safety & family atmosphere. It will always be the place with the the safest, sweetest horses, the kindest people, & the place that taught us how to ride. The experience we have had there is not only one we will remember forever but one that has changed the course of our lives & given us plans of owning our own horses someday. Chrissy & Cindy

The place to find your song...
By LovelyBonesMusic<3 - Jul 5, 2010

Riding a horse is like learning a piece of music. You practice, and listen see where you are wrong. Practice some more. Riding is the same way learning a bounce or 3' 6" or some sorta of triple/double, or the forte part in your song, is like learning to make a bound with your horse. And once you learn your piece, inside and out, can play with your eyes closed, listening to just yourself play your piece, no mistakes, you have also found your bound. Each stride, a beat, each time you go over a jump, an accent. Here you can finish your piece. At this barn you will learn to play your music. It is a riding barn isn't it? It isn't about whether you are with your friends, or whether the barns are spotless, or whether the horses are all worth 100000 dollars. It's about learning your song. I am learning my piece at MSF and I'm almost finished learning it But I will finish it here. And then I will play, with my eyes closed, no mistakes, just myself and my horse .

Proud to be a part of Morning Star Farm."

"my family was referred to morning star farm by a family friend over three years ago when we moved from a large city to this tiny little hamlet. since then, both my daughter and son have learned to love and respect all the beautiful animals they have met at the farm. while the horsemanship and private lessons have taught my children to be exceptional riders, the instructors have taught them to be confident and strong. the assertiveness, gentleness and kindness they have learned has helped them excel as riders as well as young individuals. as a parent, i couldn't ask for more. i couldn't be happier!!!!!"

"I have known Judy and Shelly for the past 9 years and trust them with my daughters safety. My oldest daughter is now working on the farm which is giving her great learning opportunities. My youngest daughter is enjoying every second of being there and learning something new every time she rides. Horses usually make me very nervous. Judy and Shelly have calmed my nerves and it has been a pleasure to watch my children learn how to handle, love and be safe around horses. Morning star farm will always have a special place in our hearts. We are looking forward to many more happy years at the farm."

COMMENDATION FOR MORNINGSTAR FARMS

 

As a parent of an eleven year-old autistic boy, I have been sending my son for weekly riding lessons in the therapeutic riding program for ten months.  Not only can I attest to the quality of the teaching, quality of horses, and constant safety protocol, but also praise the true sense of caring and commitment given to each and every student.  My son has progressed so well that he just transitioned from a private half hour therapeutic lesson to a group hour long lesson.  He has attained confidence, esteem, and a sense of self due in great part to the program at Morningstar Farms.   Above and beyond that, he has made great friends with the horses!

 

I commend Morningstar Farms for operating an excellent facility and highly recommend their programs.  Feel free to contact me directly.
