“I’ve been in­volved with horses my en­tire life,” says Lisa Rose, who owns Rose­moor Eques­trian in the North Fork with her hus­band John. “It’s a farm on 15 acres in Jame­s­port. It used to be a polo farm and now we’re in the process of turning it into a hunter and jumper farm.” As a Hamptons sta­ble, Rose­moor is get­ting back to ba­sics, play­ing down the tech and sci­ence and cre­at­ing an at­mos­phere for eques­tri­ans to ride out in the open air, just as she did grow­ing up. While the cou­ple is still work­ing on an in­door area for year-round use, they have fin­ished an all­weather foot­ing area, ready for any rider.

The sta­ble is also set­ting it­self apart from oth­ers in the area by get­ting own­ers in­volved. Ac­cord­ing to Rose, Rose­moor pro­vides the feed, turnouts, and clean­ing, but en­cour­ages the own­ers to par­tic­i­pate in bond­ing with the an­i­mal. “We are try­ing to keep it as an un­com­pli­cated, rid­ing equine ex­pe­ri­ence,” says Rose. “We have a trainer at the farm who is avail­able to teach and to ride clients’ horses. Our first con­cern is safety and the care of the horses. It’s more low-key. We want a re­laxed and en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence.” 298 Manor Lane, Jame­s­port, 631-779-3388; rose­moore­ques­trian.com

Rose­moor Eques­trian seeks to nur­ture the nat­u­ral bond be­tween horses and their own­ers.
