Since its opening in 2003, Longfellow Farm has been a premier boarding facility to those in the area, but it has also been home to many successful schooling shows, rated dressage shows, and numerous clinics. While we specialize in dressage, all are welcome to visit and take part in events hosted at the farm. The farm is a mix of competitive show horses and riders, those who want to learn and further their personal growth with their horse, and others who simply want to enjoy their equestrian partner at our facilities. We are happy to take horses in for training and sale and welcome owners who would like to further their dressage knowledge. All of the horses at Longfellow are privately owned and boarded so there are unfortunately no lesson horses available for those who do not have a horse at the time.

Owner and facility creator, Vicki Kolenda, is a force of energy that has traveled many paths to success! Not only is she the owner of Atlantic Bridge and Engineering that specializes in structural steel for bridges and buildings, but she has successfully shown through third level. After falling in love with Danish Warmbloods starting with her horse Monte, Vicki has frequently traveled to Denmark and Germany to add to the farm’s showing and sales prospects. Most recently she purchased a new horse for herself, Midt-West Prime Time, and is excited to get back in the saddle! Along with new horses comes new improvements to the facility which recently included residing the barn and indoor arena, replacing all the barn doors, and new fencing around the entire farm.

You will know Vicki when you see her on the farm, full of energy and support; often off for a walk with her three dogs never far from her side!

I want Longfellow to provide a full service facility for riders to come and feel at home. After a long day of working, I want Longfellow Dressage to be the place where people can come and unwind, – have fun and do what they love.

Longfellow Farm is named in honor of the restoration work that Atlantic Bridge and Engineering completed on the 1906 Longfellow Bridge in Boston, MA. Victoria Kolenda, together with Eric Paquette, purchased the 1752 historical Glass Family Farm property and built the equestrian facility in 2002. The property encompasses 149 pristine acres, including 10 acres of carefully tended hay fields, pasture turnout, and miles of trails. Vicki is quick to credit Eric’s support- without him, the dream of this farm would never have materialized.
