Eventing lesson barns in Maryland?

I am looking for a lesson barn near the BWI area that will allow you to show their lesson horses. I do not have time or $$ for a lease or to buy a horse of my own. I am dedicated to taking weekly lessons but would like to, on occasion, go to a show as well.

Columbia and Reddemeade only offer what I'm looking for to their Lease students.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the Forum! I would recommend that you go to Dover Saddlery in Crofton/Gambrills area, pick up an Equiery (which is a monthly publication for MD horsey folks, it is free and a great resource). Look at that and see if there isn't something there. They also, as I recall, have a bulletin board that may have some local places on it. You could also ask the folks who work there....they are usually pretty helpful.

THe Equiery is also available online, in case you really ARE in California......

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Summersinshine!!! Omg I'm so happy you're from maryland lol. Are you near linthicum? Try the Mane Event at Andover equestrian center, it's like 5 mins from BWI, actually the BWI trail goes through the farm and behind it is the airport. It's so beautiful and I have pictures of it :)

It's an english barn that has good lessons, and they have a cross country field where you can jump logs and such. They also have dressage lessons! So overall I think this would be a good barn for you.

Mane Event is more focused on hunters & jumpers, which would be a problem when you started showing - unless you have a trailer, then you most likely won't get to many events with them. Hunter paces, maybe. Events, doubt it.

I'd look into other farms that aren't too far of a drive from BWI. Waredaca was mentioned, that would be a great place to start. It's abot 30 minutes away in Laytonsville. Columbia Horse Center, which is only 20 minutes away, has an event team and TONS of horses to learn on.

Tons of other event barns out in Howard County and in Anne Arundel, south of BWI, in the Davidsonville/Crofton area.

Let me know if you want more suggestions!

Shoot, I missed the section about Columbia in your post. Forget I said that.

Maybe try Equilibrium, instead?
