Meadowbrook Stables: what do users think?

Alison Hoover: We have ridden at Meadowbrook for several years now. Weekly lessons during the school year, summer riding camp, and now private lessons and competitions. Facility is beautiful, horses are clearly well cared for and friendly, the professional and well trained staff is the perfect combination of disciplined but warm and fun. My daughters loves it, she has become a great rider (if we ever ride out of town, she is always complimented on her equitation and they note how well trained she must be) and always has a blast in the summer camp program. Who would have thought such a beautiful and full service barn and stable right on the edge of the city!

Kimberly Knackstedt: Meadowbrook is the ideal riding facility in DC. The location cannot be beat for those living or working around the DC metro. The trainers and barn managers are supportive and knowledgable, knowing exactly how to meet the needs of riders and horses. Meadowbrook supports beginner riders (children or adult) through advanced riders looking to compete in rated shows. Lessons are at convenient times for children and adults, and groups are organized to ensure each rider is progressing in his/her knowledge of riding and horsemanship. The horses are exceptionally well cared for, and the barn is clean and well maintained. I highly recommend Meadowbrook to any riders looking to learn the basics, advance their skills, or take their riding to the next level.

Morgan Hart: Meadowbrook is an excellent place for any level of hunter/jumper rider - the horses and ponies and well cared for and of very high quality for school horses, and very safe. The smallest, most beginner riders are taught with careful instruction and given ample learning time AND riding time in their lessons, and there is a program for everyone from these riders to the most advanced showing riders and everyone in between. I have ridden for over 20 years and am very lucky to have found Meadowbrook! The instructors are wonderful and the staff is top notch.

Susan four: We have been part of the Meadowbrook family for 10 years. It is an amazing place to learn to ride and to continue to grow as a rider. The instructors are top notch and the horses are wonderful.

Mary Kennedy: I have been riding at Meadowbrook for twenty years. I appreciate the wonderful staff and the excellent ponies and horses. The instructors are knowledgeable and patient and the barn staff take wonderful care of the hardworking critters.

Little Burgundy Farm: what do users think?

virginie gimenez: My kids tried a summer camp and they loved it. It was focused on dressage. They were in the beginner鈥檚 class, which was perfect for their first time. They learned a lot and one of the main important thing about horse riding was to take care of the horse: feed him, clean him, groom him... I highly recommend it for first timer. I can鈥檛 judge for the older section but I bet it is as good.

P Soriano: One of the last lesson barns in Fairfax County not far from Alexandria. The riding program is focused on dressage and provides good opportunities for shows. The stable is small with an outdoor round pen and outdoor riding arena that can accommodate up to 4 riders comfortably. Most lessons are private with a few group lessons offered. The horses and instructors are very good overall.

Chloe Morton: My sister has been riding at LBF for about 1 year now. She enjoys spending time with the horses and helping out as a counselor during summer camp. The instructors are reliable, kind, and competent and many lesson times are always available. The summer camp director is very friendly and always happy to help the campers. LBF is very accessible from DC, MD, and VA. Our family would definitely recommend Little Burgundy Farm to riders of all different skill levels.

Rani Hammond: My daughter (9) and I (45+) both ride at this barn! We have had a good experience with the trainers and the support staff. We have a regular time slot each week and can pick up extras as available. The horses are great and their is good variety in the selection. I would highly recommend this barn

Mara Winn: My daughter, 11, has been riding here for about 2 1/2 years now. We love her instructor Barbara as well as the horses. Little Burgundy Farm has been a great place for her to learn to ride.

James Andors: A wonderful stable with happy horses and knowledgeable staff.

Elsie Fisher: Love the barn and the staff

Gacha__ Dreams: Horse

Mohsen Almihdhar: Very organized

Merkel Farm Equestrian Center: what do users think?

Luis Rueda: This is a real horse ranch, not a set of fancy stables. My daughter attends weekly riding classes and she lives it. She has steadily progressed and become better and more confident at riding. The staff is great. They are excellent teachers and work hard to ensure students learn and develop with each lesson. They have a large selection of horses with myriads of personalities to challenge students. It is a really great place and the operate a popular summer camp as well. Highly recommended.

Anika Clark: I took lessons at Merkel for almost a year and had a wonderful experience there. I sadly had to discontinue lessons due to having to move to NC, but I absolutely adored Merkel. Miss Kelly and Miss Stephanie are fantastic instructors and the horses are absolutely wonderful!! Large arenas and amazing trails to ride in and overall an amazing facility to ride at. Would definitely recommend for riders of any experience level!!

Christa Wark: This is a beautiful farm with plenty of room to ride. They have indoor & outdoor rings for riding. The owner is frequently on site and great to chat with! 馃槉

Todd Thompson: Great lessons, great people, reasonable prices, nice quiet place.

Yanping Zhang: Potomac Horse center is a wonderful place for young riders (or maybe adult riders too)! My daughter has been riding for 4 years, we started at Potomac Horse Center about two years ago, and she loves the experience, so we switched to PHC officially last year. The instructors are great, staffs are very friendly, the horses are awesome! She already had a few favorite horses... and considering doing shows and competitions... For the people who really loves horses, this is a great place to ride and connect to them...

Tamarack Stables: what do users think?

David Dudley: We love Tamarack Stables! And, we have had nothing but positive experiences there. My daughter came with some experience, but since she began taking lessons here, her riding and confidence has grown. Madeleine鈥檚 ability to control the horse is now intentional, and her general knowledge of the ring and understanding of why she is being asked to do certain things has reached new levels. Some horses are better than others, but that鈥檚 everywhere you go. And, Ms. Courtney, her instructor, teaches my daughter and the other girls the way I would teach them if I could. I highly recommend this place if you want to learn how to ride and care for a horse. It is also a great place for children to learn personal responsibility.

Meagan Gregory: We had an awesome trail ride experience today. The introduction to the horses was safe an efficient, and the wranglers took care to make sure we knew how to handle the animals. The actual ride was a beautiful walk through the woods and across a large creek behind the stables. Our guide, Grant (I think?), did an *amazing* job coaching my seven-year-old, inexperienced rider through the ride. This was my daughter鈥檚 first solo ride so she was a little nervous at first, but our guide talked to her the entire time and made her feel comfortable and safe. She spent the rest of the day talking about how much fun she had. My parents and I are more experienced with horses and we also had a wonderful time. The trek across the creek was a highlight, for sure, especially when the horses started playing in the water! We will definitely be back!

Warren Graves: Tamarack Stables gave our family a wonderful riding experience. Our teenage girls were asked to brush the horses first, and we watched all their apprehensions turn to smiles and admiration for the beautiful horses. We were quickly instructed on the necessary techniques, and enjoyed a marvelous ride along their natural, scenic trails with exciting and varying terrain and landscapes, including a wide creek crossing. Our guide was friendly, personable and professional. We even got to enjoy the company of Brandy, the Australian cattle dog, who frolicked along our trek and entertained us with her frequent dips in creeks along the way. I would recommend Tamarack Stables to everyone! W. Graves

Kane Able: My wife and I had a amazing anniversary ride. The trail is gorgeous and the trail guides are very helpful, understanding and professional.I plan to return and ride with them again.

Gisele Hawkins: It鈥檚 always fun and an adventure there! There鈥檚 lots of things to do, nice horses and people everywhere you turn. There鈥檚 events, party鈥檚 and always a chance to meet or learn something new.
