Mystic Valley Hunt Club – A Treasure in Southeastern Connecticut

by Toni Leland



Imagine riding your horse in a beautiful setting on 172 acres in Southeastern Connecticut. Better still, imagine taking lessons from Connecticut Hunter/Jumper Association’s 2014 High Point Hunter Trainer, Sally Hinkle Russell. These dreams can come true at Mystic Valley Hunt Club in Gales Ferry, a premier training facility owned and cherished by Sally.

My very first assignment for Connecticut Horse magazine! Wow, a chance to meet this charming and caring horsewoman, and see the dream she made come true.

Join me as we talk with Sally, and walk her beautiful property. Happy horses and happy riders are everywhere, and that makes Sally happy!
