With the generous contributions made by so many of our friends, the Stony Hill Stables Foundation awarded five scholarships to local riders in 2019! All five recipients were awarded lesson packages to begin or continue to ride and learn. Aurora, Gizel, Penelope, Peyton, and Skyler are making wonderful progress, and we're proud of all of them! Thank you!
Our goal is to advance horsemanship education, good sportsmanship, knowledge of horse care and social connections with others in competition and clinics. Scholarships are tailored to each applicant based on their level of experience and ability. Each year, we create a program for our scholarship students that will help them realize their dreams!
Details of our 2020 Scholarship Program will be announced in the Spring.

2018 SHS Foundation benefit Recap
This year, the Stony Hill Stables Foundation hosted a spectacular benefit cocktail party. Guests included donors, past scholarship recipients, future scholarship candidates and members of the public curious about the programs offered by the foundation. This years benefit was meticulously put together by a board of members who excellently orchestrated two dressage demonstrations from farm owner, Wick Hotchkiss and her friend Stephanie Brown-Beamer also of Long Island. Students and previous scholarship winners also gathered to perform a drill team demonstration with ten horses. Lastly, Stella Bilman and her pony Otter gave an engaging jumping demonstration for viewers to enjoy. All in all the evening was a great success for all involved and help to raise an exceptional amount to donate towards future scholarships. Thank you to all involved for your hard work and dedication to produce such a lovely event!
