About Us

Welcome to R Folly Farm LLC, our home away from home. We, Mady and Thorn Rosenthal, have been riding for over twenty years and currently own four horses that we ride in dressage, do a little jumping, and trail ride. (Thorn still dreams of finding that perfect cross country horse!) We have trained with Lendon Gray, Francois LeMaire and Javier Gaona. While our focus is traditional dressage, we have attended clinics with Sally Swift, Ann Guptil, Louise Meryman, and others to gain as much insight as possible to improve our riding. We do not have a drive to compete, but we show annually to get independent appraisal of our progress. We have competed in CDA schooling and recognized shows throughout the years at Millbrook, Ox Ridge and local barns.

Our desire to have our horses under the safest and most attentive care has brought us to building this facility. Having boarded at many facilities and having seen numerous others, R Folly Farm was designed to be an efficient facility to allow us to enjoy as much time as possible with our horses. We both love to groom and spend time with the horses almost as much as riding. We believe a horse is happiest when attended to on a daily basis. Since we cannot be there each day, it is important to us to have an experienced manager living on-site to be sure their needs are addressed. Equally important, we believe a horse should be worked regularly to ensure soundness and mental acuity.

Lindsay Collette
Barn Manager

Lindsay Collette Lindsay fell in love with horses as young girl. She began taking riding lessons at age eight, at what was then known as Hill Top Stables, and has been in the barn ever since. Growing up in the horse show community, she gained knowledge and experience not only from trainers, but also fellow exhibitors which has helped shape her into the horse women she is today. After graduation from Wamogo Regional High School, where she focused her studies in Animal Science, she then went on to attended college. Shortly thereafter, Lindsay began working at Pinnacle Farms in Cornwall, CT, where she stayed for ten years. Then, after a short time of running the horse department at Blue Seal Feeds, she started her job at R Folly Farm where she is currently the Barn Manager.

When Lindsay is not at the barn, she loves spending time with her husband and three dogs. Lindsay is also an avid runner and enjoys taking the dogs along with her.
