Welcome to MVHC!


Mystic Valley is a family owned and operated facility. We have been in business since May of 1983. We pride ourselves on having a stable where beginners through polished show riders are comfortable and happy. Our students, whether human or equine, are very important to us. Please come by for a tour. We look forward to showing you around our 172 acre farm, the largest equestrian facility in Southeastern Connecticut.


Featuring two indoors, a heated two-story viewing area, seven outdoor rings, and a two-level cross country course we are proud to offer an environment that fosters the education of both horse and rider from Walk/Trot to Grand Prix. With an extensive horse show calendar including hunt seat, dressage, and combined training events, student riding teams, and seven instructors on site we are sure you'll find something for you!
