    Default Low Key Barns and Trainers in Western Mass

    I have a friend in Amherst who has been bitten by the horse bug.
    He's asked for help on where to get started. He's an advanced beginner and is looking to do some Western trail riding and perhaps learn to jump. He would like to buy a horse but I think he should start out with lessons and finding a nice barn first.
    Can anyone recommend a low key barn with a great, trustworthy trainer?

    Biscuit Hill Farm would be a great place to start. They do English, of course, but have a nice facility, lesson program, access to trails, and lots of horses for sale at reasonable prices. They're in Shelburne Falls.
