No, you're not. You're right outside of Waldorf, and Woodbridge is closer to Falls Church than Waldorf.

It's less than 20 miles from Falls Church to Woodbridge, and it's over 30 miles from Falls Church to Waldorf.

Instead of posting randomly all over, why not take an ad out in the Maryland Equiery for a working student?

solution for both of us

I am Kathleen Avillion, owner of Cheshire Horse Hills, a dressage facility that is designed for Northern Virginia clients. We need someone to help with barn chores,and you fit the bill. Check out website Cheshire Horse Hills, we have everything you and your horse could want and need plus instruction. Give me a call 301-372-6302 or email thealphamare@aol, maybe this will be win win for both.

Actually Accokeek is only 9 miles from the WW bridge, driving wise we are in Accokeek, freak that we have Waldorf PO, all of my boarders are Arlington and Alexandria, and 2 come here as far away as McLean- others have transerred here from Woodbridge as the 95 South drive is too much for them.

I've actually found the perfect place. He'll be field board but it's very affordable and at a top notch facility that I have complete access to. Also it's only 19 minutes away! So I am one happy girl :)

But thanks everyone for the help!

Okay back to the drawing board.. we move in 20 days and I'm still scrambling for a facility. I thought I found a good place but the requirements were so outrageous.. over 40 different little things like "if your horse is hard to handle, need to wear a halter 24/7" that's just disgusting IMOP and "you need to have this horse floated by one of these certified dentists BEFORE your horse arrives" yeah again.. how? He just had his teeth done and I'm not in VA yet.. I can't just magically have him stay a day in the middle of nowhere to get his teeth done.
I found another place that seems perfect but it's 40 mins away.
My parents have suddenly gotten involved (they didn't even care before) and they apparently have the last say on where he's boarding. Sigh....

But twenty days... please wish us luck. This is turning into such a stressful thing.

I really don't know anything about the falls church area but this one might not be too bad?

Virginia Equestrian.com - Grace Manor Stables

Looks like maybe MD might be a good place to look...

Horse Boarding in Fort Belvoir

Again, I don't know these places...

This is in Alexandria:

Horseback riding, Woodlawn Stables Northern, VA Home

These are stables "near the Pentagon".... hope that helps you some...

Near Andrews AFB
