Bear Spot is famous in New England for having been designed and built around the needs and desires of it's horses. The horses live in large, open stalls with fronts that let them look out, every horse is turned out for at least half the day and many of the horses use the walker both to improve conditioning and move on days with heavy snow or rain. The farm has two outdoor rings and one one indoor with mirrors running the full length of the short side. By the beginning of 2015, the indoor will additionally have radiant heat for use on the coldest New England winter days. The aisles are wide and paved with rubber tiles to provide a firm grip day to day and also in case of emergency. There is a viewing and tack store upstairs and tack room with windows looking into the indoor, lockers for each client and integrated equipment boxes on the ground floor. Laundry is done on-site for all horses in training and bagels, cookies and an espresso machine are provided  to keep the human population happy.
