Oldfields Riding has been a vibrant part of the community for over 150 years.The Oldfields Riding Program is dedicated to inspiring our riders to pursue a path of continued growth. Our goals are to develop and enhance a yearning for knowledge, to value the character of the horse and the integrity of the sport, to honor the path of the individual, and to savor the process of learning and the lessons discovered from our relationships with horses.
Our program is dedicated to each girl’s success, whether in the horse show ring, on a cross country course, or in the hunt field. From riders who are just beginning through very experienced riders, we create an environment that helps each student reach her riding goals.
Students have the chance to compete in numerous horse shows, events, and Interscholastic Equitation competitions. Additionally, Oldfields is located in the heart of Maryland Hunt country. This gives students the opportunity to foxhunt on the weekends with three local packs. We also host several clinics throughout the year. Past clinicians include Bernie Traurig, Greg Best, and Joe Fargis.
Our motto, “Where learning moves outside of the classroom and into the barn,” is part of our daily life. The girls have the opportunity to learn about horse care and management through working side by side with our hands-on staff, veterinarian, and farrier.
come for a visit!
The magic of Oldfields is how you feel when you are here—excited and challenged, and at the same time, comfortable and at home. The very best way to experience it is in person.
