About Us

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS!

  

Located just minutes off of Route 95 in Westbrook Connecticut, Westbrook Hunt Club is situated on 30 beautiful acres, and home to state-of-the-art riding lesson and training facilities. We also offer for sale quality show jumpers and hunters, show services, and boarding. Offering riders one of Connecticut's largest indoor rings, several outdoor rings with quality show jumps on our 30 acres. We also host year-round horse shows  for schooling, local, and nationally rated competitions, riding clinics, and a full-service tack shop.

Westbrook Hunt Club is owned by respected horsewoman, and USEF 'R' judge Jane Dow-Burt.

After an amazing 50 years of operation, Jane continues to strive to keep her equine facility one of the best in Connecticut. Because her judging as a 40 year "R" judge takes her across the country and to Bermuda, she's turned the reins over to well-respected jumper rider, Shelbi Heady. Shelbi, who has an amazing history of accomplishments herself, is continuing the tradition of excellence. 


Westbrook is home to numerous horse shows, ranging from Introductory Schooling shows to USEF "A" rated competitions, her multiple riding rings, and professional jumps, are inviting for competitors of all levels.  The farm is also host to Blue Ribbon Venture shows, the Connecticut Horse Show Association Finals, and Combined Training competitions.
