Smile Can anyone help a horseless rider in D.C.?

Hi! I live in Washington, D.C. And have had to give up riding for a few years due to a crazy work schedule. I am desperately wanting to get back into owning and showing again, but until I can find a new horse, I'd like to get myself back into condition again. Does anyone know of a hunter/jumper within an hour of DC who needs some exercise? I am also happy to help with barn chores in exchange for riding privileges! :)

Hi! If you don't mind driving for an hour, I am currently boarding at Cherokee Winds in Manassas and she offers Hunter lessons. A VERY laid back farm. I love it there.

If Manassas is too far for you (which can be quite a drive during afternoon rush hour), Frying Fan Park in Herndon offers lessons and I bet you can work out a deal with them. They have a stellar cross country course.

Hideaway Horse Center in Brandywine, MD is only about 30 mins from DC and they have lots of hunter jumper horses for lease and offer good lessons.

Steph, check They have a section ("Selling and buying" -> General) where barns are looking for help. I'd also suggest to contact hunter / jumper barns in area directly and ask if it's something possible. I'm not into jumping much (so can't suggest any barn), but I know dressage barns look for the help in exchange for lessons all the time. Good luck!

Thank you everyone for the tips! I will definitely look into all of the leads :)
