This lovely new facility boasts 10 acres of grass, with hills galore! The horses will have new
muscles by the time they walk down the hills! There is a huge field with several log jumps and coops, our future cross country course. Aside from riding the farm for fun hacking and great conditioning, the W & OD trail system is about a 10-15 minute downhill walk. Great for endurance training, and just having fun!
We also have a large outdoor arena with bluestone footing, along with a large grass arena that will become a jumping ring. A 50’ round pen should be set up before the end of August.
This wonderful location is less than 5 minutes to almost anywhere in Leesburg. Loudoun County HS is right down the street, along with at least two other public schools.
We offer a whole horse approach to learning how to horseback ride. All students are taught herd behavior and body language. They also learn how to use their body language to engage with the horse. The benefits of working with the horse, in hand, on the ground, are immense. Ground work sets you up as leader in your horses eye, it creates a bond that simply horseback riding cannot create, and it keeps you safe while determining if your horse is mentally ready for the days task.
Of course, our equestrians also learn to properly ‘catch’ their horse, in a field or in a stall, lead correctly, groom and all aspects of tacking up.
We teach riding lessons from age 6 and up. All levels are welcome. We also love teaching adult equestrians and specialize in those adults returning to riding lessons after a number of years away from the sport.
“Good Horsemanship and a less talented rider will excel compared to a talented rider with poor Horsemanship.”
If you are interested in lessons, please
contact us so we can schedule a time to show you the facility and discuss your needs. Our barn is a private riding center, therefore appointments are needed. If you would like to watch a lesson, that can be arranged. At this time we do not have any stalls available for boarding.
we will soon be adding hack rides and trail riding lessons to the program, These will be for students only with prior approval from trainer.
The barn is directly on the corner of Blessed Lane and Thomas Mill. Please park in front of barn and as much to the right as possible. The occupants of the house on the left need to be able to exit the driveway at the same point.
Please remember, this is private property. If you’d like to walk down the street, that is fine, but please refrain from walking around the grounds. Please obey neighborhood speed limits! This is a quiet street, our occupancy should not disrupt the normal goings on.
