Indian Rock Stables has been a Mass Thoroughbred Mare and Foal Management Farm since 2000. We offer a complete nutritional feeding program for pregnant mares to assist in proper foal growth. We also offer state-of-the-art foaling monitor and camera observation 24 hours a day, as well as an EquiPage foaling alarm system.

Since 2000, many Mass bred foals have been born, raised, and trained here to go on to race at Suffolk Downs. We also provide care for thoroughbreds that require layups from the track for rest of minor injuries- most times from the end of the racing meet. We are a full board facility for these layups, with 24 hour onsite supervision. We offer veterinary, farrier, and dentistry services for horses while on layup at owners expense.

If you have any questions or are looking to reserve a stall, please contact Karen Benson via e-mail at indianrock28@aol.com or by phone (781)502-8800.

Meet Karen Benson

Karen has had a love for horses her whole life, riding as a youngster while spending summer vacations with her cousins in the country. Karen married Michael Benson in 1982; they embarked together on the Thoroughbred racing industry as a hobby. They had very successful horses and expanded their stable- which led them to breed Mass bred Thoroughbreds.

Michael and Karen have a daughter named Paige; who, since birth, had come to the race track to see and pet the horses. Eventually Paige and Karen's love for horses would bring them to where they would show and compete at yearly open pleasure horse shows. Through the years Paige would show with her ponies and horses and Karen with her miniature horses. Karen won many year-end titles with her mini Tiz Budwiser. They then started showing on the Pinto Horse Association. Karen, Michael and Paige were very involved with the New England Pinto Horse Association (NEPtHA).

In 2007 Karen became President of NEPtHA and was President through 2011. Still very active with the organization, Karen is Chairman of the Board and volunteers when needed. Karen has also served on other association Boards doing volunteer work to make a difference.
