Private Horse Grooming Lessons

Located in Cold Spring, New York just off the Taconic Parkway, Topfield Center offers an environment where children, teens, and adults are growing, loving and laughing through equine-assisted interactions.​  Our special program pairs an instructor, a horse and a client on a journey of connection and growth.  Whether your're looking to find calm in the storm, build self confidence or overcome a fear; spending time with a horse can help you on that path.  We encourage you to sign up for a private grooming session today with one of our special horses.

As Winston Churchhill once said: "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”​

Boasting breathtaking views of the majestic Hudson Valley, you are guided through an individualized program by our compassionate team of  professionals with the goal of fostering the truly unique relationship between humans and horses.

Topfield  Center is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Beginning Watercolor with Alan Lewis
Wallkill River School of Art

This beginning watercolor class will be focused on producing finished work.  I have noticed that I have learned best when following along painting with an artist, so that is the approach this class will follow.  The first week will be devoted to materials, helping negotiate between all the different options, and what the importance of each element is.  First time students are encouraged to attend, and to bring whatever you have.  We will then produce a finished painting each week with a different subject, and returning students are welcomed.  The approach will be to paint fast and loose, to cover the basics of watercolor by doing them, and hopefully to have some fun. Sunday Mornings 10am – 12pm at Wallkill River School
