A few years ago when a friend purchased the property, this was 29 unkempt acres with little more than a barn. The plan, he announced, was to create a horse farm. Thoughtful, yes, because his wife’s favorite pastime is riding, but it occurred to me the fantasy was a little crazy because these two people have their hands full. Besides, I hadn’t noticed that many people rode horses around here.
Well, call me wrong. Today, Pepper Hill is another attraction on Maine’s midcoast.
Land has been cleared to create wooded riding trails, and new pens give horses a place to frolic and enjoy being outside.
The barn is updated and every stall is occupied by beautiful animals that are well groomed and spoiled with attention.
There is an indoor arena which makes riding in any weather possible.
One of the unique features at Pepper Hill is its stable of Icelandic horses.
Their smaller frame makes them the perfect horse for children learning to ride.
The Icelandic also has become a popular choice for adults as it has a pleasing diversity of gaits.
What is wonderful about Pepper Hill is that it gives positive proof that fantasy can become reality though making it happen requires considerable effort.
Here, much of that effort can be attributed to the hubby who spent hours clearing, building and sweating. Sometimes I wonder when he sleeps!
