Since 1979 If Only Farm has offered quality boarding, professional training for horse and rider, and has hosted hundreds of shows and clinics for riders of all ages. We are located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of central New York State, just minutes northeast of Ithaca, NY and the Cornell University Veterinary School and Equine Hospital. If Only Farm is the proud home of the Ithaca College Equestrian Team and the Cornell University Dressage Club. We have a number of wonderful, well-trained horses and ponies available for beginner to advanced lessons, as well as horses available for sale and lease. Our facility includes indoor and outdoor riding rings, a cross-country course, two boarding barns with box stalls, and numerous turn-out paddocks and pastures.
Explore our website to learn more about boarding your horse at the farm, our riding programs, instructors, camps and clinics, and horses we have available for sale or lease.
Bill Lowe offers scheduled and emergency horse transport as well as a range of farm and building services.
We are sad to share that If Only Farm and Joan, one our longest boarders, lost a very dear old friend last week. Nugget (Brass to Gold) passed away peacefully on Wednesday January 30, 2019 at the age of 25. Nugget was a wonderful equine partner to Joan for 18 years and she feels blessed to have had so many great years with her, and is very grateful to Sue for introducing her to Nugget back in 2001.
Nugget was a favorite around the farm and, under Joan's superb tutelage, she taught many of our smallest students and campers how to ride.
Truly one of the kindest mares to live at the farm - Nugget will be deeply missed.
Rest in Peace, sweet Nugget
