The Friends of Morton Farm was formed by a group of alumni who enjoyed riding at Dartmouth. Non-alumni users and supporters of Dartmouth Riding Center are involved as well. The aims of the Friends are to help Dartmouth Riding Center in these ways:

It is our pleasure to announce the generous gift presented by Helen Naylor to the Dartmouth Equestrian program. Helen’s late husband, George Martin Naylor, Jr. graduated from Dartmouth in the Class of ’29. Helen is a former member of the Norfolk Hunt and a current member of the North Country Hounds in Hartland, VT. Helen leased her beloved horse, Maestro, to the Dartmouth program in early summer ’04 and decided to create the fund after she saw the attention Maestro was receiving by the students in the program. Helen’s gift has been set up specifically for Dartmouth students who cannot afford the costs of riding.
The Maestro Scholarship Fund will serve the program into the future by funding students who otherwise may not be able to ride!
Through the years, Dartmouth Riding Program alums and other friends have asked if there are any specific projects that they can fund for Dartmouth Riding Center. The following is a wish/dream list which is followed by a "practical equipment" list of actual items that we need. Items on both lists are tax-deductible (but may not receive Alumni Fund credit). In past years, the Friends of Dartmouth Riding Center have helped fund a number of projects: The George and Nora Graham dressage arena, hot water and horse vacuum in the washstall, and, of course, the office/tack room addition including "Oscar's Room," funded by Gordon and Virginia Williamson.
