We offer Western and English lessons in either a Private lesson or a Group lesson.
Ground work is just as important as learning to sit the saddle properly!
Whether you're 5 or 95, follow your dreams and join us for lessons!
We are constantly monitoring the COVID19 guidelines and will be making any necessary changes to events if and when needed. Please keep an eye open to those events you were planning on attending to see if there are any updates.

Every barn needs a steady pony to teach kids the ropes, and Apache is our guy! As with most ponies, Apache can have a mind of his own, but deep down he is a sweet guy with a heart of gold. He's up for anything and has taken many kids for their first ride

Chuck is a gentle soul with a heart of gold. His goofy personality combined with his eager attitude makes him a fun ride for advanced riders and beginners alike. A former state barrel racing champion in Maine, he now is content to pony around his students.
Cici ("C C" stands for Cookies and Cream!) is a tough little mare with tons of talent. She is a great western mount and neck reins like a champ, but throw an English saddle on and she'll happily bomb around a jump course or a dressage test. Out in the field she is the indisputable "boss mare," and takes care of her rider just as well as she does her herd.
Just as her name implies, Cora is an honest, sweet girl. She has impeccable ground manners and patience for days. She loves children and trail rides most of all. Cora can go Western or English and will happily take payment in carrots, apples or peppermints.
Dixie has been there and done that. She knows her job and does it well. She may be slowing down in her old age, but she's still ready to truck around beginners and help them develop their confidence at the walk and trot. Every once in a while she likes to compete in our Buckle/Cup series.
Doc is a 17H Off Track Thoroughbred who was famous in Pony Clubs around the Md area. He is perfect for intermediate and advanced riders who have goals for jumping. Honest and kind enough to babysit our younger riders, too!
Gemma is a feisty little red-headed pony and one of the barn favorites! Once she trusts you she is a great partner for trails or small jump courses. She loves to be brushed and is very gentle with new riders, but for more experienced kids she can be a very fun ride!
Kyla is our newest Schoolmaster perfect for adults and ambitious youth. She does 2nd level Dressage and is very good at teaching all the basics. Her instructors love calling her a moose because of her big, beautiful ears.
Steady? Check. Sturdy? Check. Unbelievably adorable? Check!
Molly is a favorite among beginner students, with her fluffy forelock and comfy trot. On cool autumn days she'll truck you around all day, if you ask nicely! She is patient and kind, and just the right size!

Meet Oscar! Our best supporting actor. He is an in your pocket kind of guy. Great at playing the role of OTTB and calm, cool, collected lesson horse. At 16.2 hands he will make you feel like you’re on top of the world and if you ask nicely he will pull out his best red carpet moves. He’s winning hearts around here!
Stella is our beloved matriarch. She may be old, but someone clearly forgot to tell her! She can still walk, trot, and canter, and is a great teacher! She's spunky, but has left her young and crazy days behind her and is as reliable as the day is long; just don't get between her and food. She loves to be brushed, espec
