Iron Horse Dressage, LLC., is a state of the art Equestrian Facility located in Framingham, MA on 84 beautiful acres adjacent to Callahan State Park with access to miles of horse-friendly trails.
No expense has been spared in the design and construction of this facility. It has been designed specifically to cater to both the dressage enthusiast and their equestrian partner. The 34 stall barn has been specifically designed for the health of the horse. It includes aerodynamic ventilation and natural light which helps create optimal conditions for the horse. Radiant heat throughout will be used to keep both horses and clients comfortable during the coldest days of winter. The barn includes client and trainer tack rooms with full-size lockers, laundry, blanket drying room, 3 grooming stalls, 2 wash stalls, bathrooms, dedicated vet and farrier stalls, break room and viewing room.
Stalls by Lucas Equine are a roomy 12’x12’ with automatic waterers with consumption meters, dutch doors or windows with yolk screens, stall door with french yolks, and fans. Stalls with walk-outs are available.
All stalls have the StableComfort stall mat system, which provides a supportive, even surface. It has the benefit of decreasing the timeline of injury rehabilitation and aids in loosening stiff joints. StableComfort is a patented, innovative, and shock-absorbing stall mat system that offers the characteristics of natural pasture, allowing your horses to walk, rise, and lay down without the fear of slipping. StableComfort has proven results in horses with joint problems by enabling safer and easier movement. This stall mat system allows your horse to be at their most comfortable while being stalled.
The large steel built arena is 80’ x 230‘ and is connected to the barn. It has multiple garage door windows that can open in the summer for ventilation. In addition, there are two large Big Ass fans for ventilation, and mirrors are fixed on the short and long sides of the arena. Radiant heaters will keep the chill off during the winter.
