What IS NEECA??  And why is it so special?

NEECA (The New England Equestrian Center of Athol) is a non- profit organization, and its Board of Directors is responsible for managing and maintaining the over 200-acre municipal equestrian park located on New Sherborn Road in Athol, MA.

The park has been in existence since 2001 and has been run solely by volunteers. The financing for maintaining and adding amenities/services to the park has come from entry fees for events, renting out the park to other organizations, fund-raising, our annual Fall Social and auction, membership fees, donations, and through state grants that we have applied for in the past.

It has been a massive undertaking by a very dedicated group of people over the years, and through their diligence, the park has grown to the point where we now have water, electricity, over 3 miles of well marked trails, a 240’ x 100’ main arena with announcer booth/PA system and speakers in the trailer parking area as well. We also have a warm-up ring, a round pen, a Confidence Course with new obstacles added regularly, a Food Booth, and a new Driving Arena that was added two years ago.

It's important to know that when you pay an entry fee for a NEECA event, join as a member or make a donation, you are directly helping us to maintain the park and to save money for new projects. We deeply appreciate your part in helping us to continue to grow by participating in our events.


Come see what we have to offer for your own riding or driving pleasure, and consider leasing the New England Equestrian Center of Athol's park for your club or organization's event.
