Getner Barn is one of Fairfield County's best-kept secrets. It is a small private barn that has been teaching Darien, Norwalk and Greenwich children to ride for over twenty-five years. Kathi Meenan, DVM and her staff, specialize in introducing children to horses, teaching basic English riding and horsemanship. The lessons are personalized to meet the needs of each child, and are designed around his/her individual needs and skills. The emphasis is on establishing both a bond between child and horse and a fundamental understanding of the art and science of riding.
Getner offers a highly professional, yet very relaxed
(blue jeans are very much the norm) family operation.
In addition to children’s lessons and summer camp, Getner Barn offers much more – horsemanship, trail rides and other equine activities.
