Dar Maur Manor opened in 1989 specializing in American Saddlebreds and Morgans.
Over the past 24 years, we have expanded our specialty to also include Hackney
ponies. We are located at 2858 Old State Route 12 in Sauquoit, New York,
approximately 10 minutes from the New York State Thruway, less than 10 minutes
from Utica, 5 miles south of New Hartford, and just 5 miles east of Clinton. At Dar
Maur Manor, we offer riding lessons, driving lessons, boarding, showing, sales, limited
horse training, and equine transport. Contact us here or stop in for pricing or more
information. We are open 7 days a week with our primary residence on the property,
and are available and happy to meet with you at any time.
Our riding lesson instructor, Laura DeStefanis, has more than 23 years of rated and
open show experience. An accomplished equestrian in the show ring, she has
instructed both aspiring and experienced riders of all ages in saddle seat equitation for
the last 12 years. Her students have competed in leadline, walk-trot, academy, saddle
seat equitation, and performance classes with great show ring success.
Our lesson instructor and assistant, Danielle Patak, is currently attending Morrisville
College where she majors in Equestrian Studies. Danielle is experienced in saddle
seat, hunt seat and western riding and provides instruction in the saddle seat and hunt
seat disciplines. Danielle graduates from Morrisville in May, 2013 and we look
forward to having her join our team full time.
Our owners, Tom and Maureen Quackenbush have over 25 years experience working
with and caring for horses and offer only the finest care for you and your equine.
