The Castle is a horse farm “in progress" where horseback riding lessons and boarding in a quality horse care facility will be offered soon.  The Castle horse farm encompasses 41 acres of beautiful Maryland countryside. Boarding facilities include:  Two 5+-acre pastures both with attached paddocks and one with a run-in shed.  All brand new fencing; 3 board fence and American (horse safe) 2" x 4" box wire.  We separate mares and geldings in the two fields.


In the barn shown above there are nine box stalls (12' x 12'), a large tack room features custom Cherrywood interior, a separate feed room and a (12' x 12') wash stall.  All stalls have mats, nice windows and a natural light panel that runs the length of the exterior wall. 


There is a 260’ x 150’ outdoor arena with all weather footing, and a 70’ round pen.  Lots of trails already established without going through gates or pastures. 


We are looking for people who want to learn horseback riding from the beginning, people who used to ride horses and want to ride again, and those needing a quality establishment to board their horse or pony. As more facilities are completed, the web site will show the changes.  Visitors are welcome by appointment.  We encourage enquiries about lessons and boarding at any time! This facility will be ready for boarders in the summer of 2013.

 You need not board a horse with us to take lessons, as we  offer lessons on our horses or you can bring in your own equine.

Riding lessons on your horse or mine will also be available evenings and weekends.
