concentrate on developing basic
equitation skills -- the same as
we teach professionally 363 days per

EARLY DROP-OFF & LATE PICKUPS
- No Problem, we've got you
Program operates from 9am to 4pm,
know that in the real world it's not
always possible to drop-off and
pick-up in this timeframe - so we
offer early drop-off starting 2
hours earlier at 7am and late
pick-up 2 hours later to 6pm at no additional
charge. During these times
one of our daily Camp
Counselors will be on hand to
welcome and provide for your

The Closest Location with the Most
While there are
a few other options in Horse Camp
programs - none match our rich
history of horsemanship, convenient
location, and extensive facilities.
We're a time honored tradition,
The place where literally thousands
upon thousands of Washington DC
region residents have learned to
ride and enjoy the equestrian life.
We're just a few miles from I-270 &
I-370 in the center of North
Potomac. Easily accessible from
Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Potomac
- you'll not have to drive deep into
the countryside to reach our farm.
A PUBLIC FACILITY -
Leased from the Maryland-National
Capital Park & Planning Commission
under one basic premise... to
make horseback riding accessible to
the public. At Potomac Horse
Center - you may enjoy everything
equestrian without owning a horse or
committing to any more than one
of many carefully designed,
academically inspired programs.
We're not just someone's private
barnyard, we're an institution - a
precious gem belonging to everyone
in Montgomery County - and we're
proud of it!
