Welcome to Our Farm
Bob and I welcome you to our farm, we love it here, and we'd love
to have you stop by and sit a spell. (Please call first to make an appointment)
Our paddocks all have attached run in's the horse gets to choose to go in or stay out.
This is what Pete's owner (The palomino above) had to say about his stay here.
"I was lucky to find Bobcat Farm. I've boarded my Quarter Horse at Bobcat Farm for several years and we've been very happy there! The environment is very laid back, my horse has enjoyed 24/7 turnout, excellent care and plentiful hay (and an occasional treat or two). Horse get individual attention and are treated like part of the family. It's also reassuring to have both Cathie and Bob on site. We have enjoyed our time at Bobcat Farm". Jennifer Guy
With a long commute Jen said goodbye bringing Pete closer to home. We miss them both but still enjoy Jen's visits to Bobcat Farm.
Update November 2019 Pete and Jen are back! So happy they chose Bobcat Farm even though we are over an hour from there new home.
Bobcat Farm is an excellent place to board a horse!! The grounds are lovely and well maintained, and the care that Cathie and Bob take of the horses is exceptional. Since our horse arrived there, he has become so much more confident, relaxed, and sociable with other horses. (He was a rescue with some fearful issues in his past, but Cathie’s expertise on horse psychology and behavior helps us to help him become so calm!) The great thing about Bobcat Farms is that they are constantly aware of each horse’s physical and emotional health, and they treat each horse as they treat their own. Bob and Cathie are the first to tell us how our horse has been eating, interacting with other horses, and and behaving. It’s great to be able to come by anytime and ride him, groom him, or work with him. It’s also the kind of environment we prefer for all animals- which they are allowed to behave in the way that they are naturally comfortable, like training without shoes or bits in the mouth. A great value for the personal care that you get, I would recommend Bobcat Farms to anyone with a love of animals. Michelle Fox
Note: If you prefer to use shoes or bits with your horse, you are still welcome here. We all do what we think is best for our horses, Our boarder chose to transition to bitless, and some have chosen shoes.
Former boarders remarks..
Bobcat Farm is a great place to board. Bob and Cathie treat me as family. Most importantly they treat my horse as their family too. The farm is a relaxed atmosphere where you can always expect to be greeted with a smile. It is great to have Cathie onsite to do lessons. Cathie has a true gift with teaching horses and thier owners. My girl and I are very grateful to have found a barn that we both love! Thank you Bob and Cathie for all your hard work to make your barn feel like our home. - Tara and Ry
My horse is very well cared for by both Bob and Cathie. The farm is a small friendly barn with access to endless trails. Bob works tirelessly to keep all the paddocks clean and the riding surface smooth. Bob and Cathie make a really great team! Bobcat Farm has become my second home. Sarah K.
Bobcat farm is my sanctuary. Peaceful,quiet, and friendly. My 2 horses and I love it there. They both are well taken care of and looked after. Cathie is a great instructor. I came with a very green horse that only had a few rides under her belt. Today she is doing so well, she amazes me everyday. And to add a little spice to the mix,I decided to take on another horse,that was really only halter broke. She was brought to Bobcat Farm on June 1, 2015. Because of Cathie and her great instruction, and teaching skills, we put the first ride on this little mare in October 2015. She has come such a long way in a short amount of time, I owe her success to the kind, confident, and knowledgeable handling from Cathie. I feel very lucky to have myself and my horses under her care and her instruction. I also want to thank Cathie's other half Bob for all that he does. The list is way too long to write out of the many projects, chores, tasks that is done on a daily basis, all done for the amazing care provided to the horses boarded at their farm. I can't thank you both enough for everything that you do. Cyndi Dionne (After boarding here for 4 or 5 yearsCyndi moved to a farm and was able to keep her horses at her own place).
After a long search for the perfect horse barn, I found Bobcat Farm. I immediately loved the peaceful and laidback atmosphere. I had not been riding for about 20 years and needed the one on one attention of a knowledgeable instructor that made me feel save on a horse again. Cathie taught me a lot to where I felt comfortable to lease her horse for the year. An opportunity presented itself where the perfect horse became for sale. With the expert support and help from Cathie, we then picked up my girl. She has been living at Bobcat Farm for the past 2 plus years. Cathie and Bob are very attentive to the horses there and treat them as their own. She loves the 24/7 turnout with ample hay fed every couple of hours. Even when I am unable to get to the barn, I don't have to worry about her. Reg E. (Reg's life circumstances changed and she moved on after 3 years)

Click HERE to take a trail ride with us!
Your horse will enjoy 24/7 turn-out. Rubber matted 12x12 stalls attached to barn, as well as run in sheds with 24/7 turn out. We have trails right out the back yard, almost rock free! No need to cross a road. Ride out to the TN Pipeline, well marked trails. Or blaze your own! Trailer parking available, bring your own farrier, or barefoot trimmer and vet, or use ours. Lighted ring is maintained and good for riding all winter long. (except for extreme circumtances like a record deep freeze) We do not offer blanketing here, as horses are fed plenty of hay, are not locked in stalls ever, lack of movement would make them get cold. Horses are allowed to moved about, if they feel cold, they move around and warm up on thier own.
You can bring a blanket to have on hand in and emergency situation. I have some myself just in case, but if I ever throw a blanket on it's after a bath to keep them clean for the next morning of an event.

Ruger- Aka Doctor Driftwood
This was Ruger's first time at the Marshfield Fair,
just a few months under saddle. Now in 2022 he's a teemeager.

Introducing my new horse AQHA Dr. Driftwood aka Ruger. I bought him sight unseen as a 16 month old semi feral gelding. Vanessa Wright came to Bobcat Farm to photograph Cachina for her traveling art show "The Literary Horse" Since I had her captive she took some amazing photos of Ruger as well. Please do not take these particular photos without Vanessa permission.
This is NOT photo shopped, that's Scooter riding on the back. Scooter had ridden Ruger before, but this was our first time that Ruger had both of us on board. He took it all in stride.
Thanks and enjoy.
This was Rugers first parade, Cachina's second time. I rode Cachina, and ponied Ruger as he had less than a month under saddle, he was so good, and I was even able to fire a few shots off Cachina while ponying Ruger at the judges stand. (I was riding with the MA Six Shooters) At the end of the parade, he was calm and Cachina was a little fried (she did NOT like the Chinese dragons in front of us), I swapped horses, and rode Ruger through downtown Wellesley MA through traffic and over a bridge, and it was like I was riding a veteran parade horse, and with just a rope halter. Ruger and Cachina were in Upton MA Parade, and Ruger and I rode in Grafton MA parade as well.
Cachina, Cathie, and Hunter, in a one horse open sleigh!
Very first time at the ocean and Cachina was willing to go in deep.
