With the generous contributions made by so many of our friends, Stony Hill Stables Foundation is happy to announce that we will be awarding five equestrian scholarships to local youth for the upcoming season.
We are looking for children who love horses and are motivated and driven to learn equestrian skills. Academic achievements, leadership positions, athletic and community activities as well as financial need are taken into account during the selection process. Hamptons residency is required.
If you think your child qualifies, or you know a child who does, please contact Stony Hill Stables Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 631-377-8587.
Scholarships will be awarded for the Summer 2023 season and will include 10 half hour private lessons and 10 one hour group lessons.
Scholarship recipients come from a large pool of candidates and unfortunately, not every applicant will win a scholarship this year. We welcome applicants to apply again next year if they are not awarded a scholarship at this time.
Our goal is to advance horsemanship education, good sportsmanship, knowledge of horse care and social connections with others through lessons, 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!
Best of luck and we hope to see you at the barn!

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!
