What is The Vermont Horse Country Store?

Well, we're not a catalog store! We are your local tack shop. Where ever you may be! Like a catalog we're as close as your telephone. But we're never limited by a catalog. When you call us, you will get a real horse person who will help you find exactly what you want in the best quality available for the price you feel comfortable with. If we can't find what you want, we'll try to tell you who can! And if we're not right handy, we'll call you back!

What does The Vermont Horse Country Store carry?

Since 1985 High Brook Horse & Harness, and now The Vermont Horse Country Store, has been Vermont's horse country store offering a full line of tack and equestrian goods and services as well as a great selection of equestrian specialties. We also have a short term rental house for horsepeople coming to visit the area, repair services, a great bulletin board and many other ways to network with other horsepeople. Located next door to Green Mountain Horse Association on Route 106 in South Woodstock, Vermont, we don't cater to any one discipline because we see a different group of horses and horse people every week all summer long. In our store you will find equipment for Huntseat, Saddleseat, Western, Show, Pleasure, Competitive & Endurance Trail, Combined Training, Combined Driving, Competitive Driving and just about any other equestrian interest you can think of.

Do you go to horse shows?

We have a mobile unit that can bring an appropriate selection of our inventory to your event or show. The Roadshow is specifically designed to go to smaller and mid-sized events in and around New England. Call us if you're interested. We'd be happy to talk with you about your needs.

Do you sell horses?

High Brook Morgan Horse Farm is located just 2 miles south of The Vermont Horse Country Store. At the farm we breed and raise High Brook Morgan Horses. We always have horses on our sales list and we are happy to offer tours of the farm, visits to "The Boys"(our stallions) or a look at broodmares and young stock. Please allow us a little notice to be sure that there is someone available to show you around.

Is this Maple Syrup yours?

The best maple syrup in the world is made from natural maple sap tapped from trailside trees throughout Vermont Horse Country. It is a very important crop on family farms and we think it is pretty special. Evaporated by the traditional method it is the best the Kedron Valley has to offer.

Are you part of GMHA?

No! We are simply very good neighbors!

When you call us you are calling Laura & Matthew Spittle and Beth Dawley who has been in the store for 20 years. Laura's mother, Charlotte Sterling, ran The Roadshow during the summer for many years but has now retired to the farm. We continue her tradition of providing wonderul food for High Brook and GMHA events. She is High Brook Hospitality and you'll just have to ask us about that!
