    My DD received her appt and is looking to schedule an overnight visit and would like to travel on her own. What have been some good options to travel from Newburgh Stewart Airport to WP for others? She is also interested in the equestrian team, and if possible would like to visit the riding facilities. Is there a WP shuttle that transports the cadets to/from Morgan Farm?

    Probably Uber for Newburgh to WP. There is no shuttle to Morgan Farm. Has she expressed her interest to the coach of the equestrian team? That might be her ticket out to the farm!

    If you want to spring for a car service, I have used Golden Knight from Newark to WP. I assume they also service Stewart. www.goldenknightlimo.com 914.245.8718

    Also, there is a taxi/shuttle service that you have to call ahead of time to arrange transport. It is listed on the airport's website:

    Taxi/Limousine Service

    Taxi, van and limousine service is available at Stewart with Visconti Ground Transport. Located in the terminal, Visconti offers a variety of options to get you to your destination. Contact Visconti directly for more information.

    She should be paired w/ a cadet on the Equestrian team...she can request this. Then, she'll go to practice w/ the cadet during her overnight. Taxi or Uber from Newburgh...it's only 20 min.

    If you have an American Express card, use their concierge service and have them recommend a car service. I have used it numerous times around the country. I trust them with my clients but more importantly with my family (wife and children). An example, we brought our DD to WP for SLE (2016). When it was over, we sent a car for her and I met her in Newark and flew home with her.

    Our son has used AMEX concierge as well. We don't leave home without it. ;)

    Thank you all for the great advice and suggestions. Also, I'll mention to her to request being paired with a cadet on the equestrian team--that would give her some insight into the team and hopefully get her to the stables.
