After a lifetime of riding and caring for horses, the Rose family is taking on the equestrian business with their new stable, Rosemoor.
“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
