Great Vista Farm, located in Fort Plain, NY, began in 2005 under the direction of Sarah Dalton-Morris. The farm is located about 6 miles outside the historic village of Fort Plain and overlooks the very scenic Mohawk Valley, hence the name Great Vista Farm, and is surrounded by the old-world style of many Amish farms and families.
The main focus of Great Vista Farm is to promote the equestrian sports of eventing and jumping. Throughout the year, the farm hosts numerous clinics, camps and schooling competitions as well as an autumn hunter pace to assist riders with developing their skills and getting important feedback on their progress.
Each year Great Vista Farm hosts a US Eventing Association (USEA) recognized competition in mid-June, running Intro through Training/Novice levels. Due to its unique location (centrally located within NY), the event hosts competitors from all over NY, PA, and New England.
Overseeing all events at Great Vista is owner/operator Sarah Dalton-Morris. Sarah's previous experiences include developing and operating the very successful Frazier Farm in Woodbury, CT for 29 years; teaching riders and training horses for eventing, show jumping and dressage. Although the business at Frazier Farm was passed on to Corinne and Andrew Gagnon in 2009, Sarah continues to teach at Frazier Farm and surrounding areas as well as teaching in the Great Vista Farm area of NY.
