Glen Farm started in the 1880s as the country estate of Henry A. Taylor. The estate included a manor house, a stables complex, and over 1500 acres of land.

The property was eventually purchased by the Town of Portsmouth. The manor house became a museum. The vast acreage has become a park. The stables underwent several changes of management, and in April of 2017 settled as Glen Farm Stables under Ann Clemens.


Ann Clemens, Business Owner

Ann grew up riding Pony Club and eventing in her hometown of Concord, MA.

From 2000 to 2010 she managed the A-circuit hunter-jumper facility Arrowhead Farms.

In 2010 she moved to Newport, RI with her family.

In 2017 she bid upon, and was awarded by the Town of Portsmouth, the Glen Farm Stables at which to start a new multi-disciplinary riding business.

Since then she has started the long process of capital improvements and renovations of the Stables. It has been a labor of blood, sweat, tears and love. If you stop by the Stables and believe they are looking better than ever please let her know.

Ann is a graduate of St John’s College and has a masters from the Sotheby Institute of Art.
