Who We Are

Woodland Horse Center is Maryland's premier horse center for children's summer camps. Our instructors teach with a gentle sense of humor and our horses teach with kindness. Our camp is loaded with horse fun all day long. The campers not only learn to ride but learn all about the daily care of the horse. Campers also enjoy arts and crafts, water games, western day and lots more horse-related fun!!

Under our riding program children are evaluated and placed in groups according to their skill levels. You can be assured of the correct class level.

Our summer camp, located on a beautiful 25 acre estate of horse riding rings, stables and trails, is the perfect spot to learn to ride. If you have a horse-crazy kid...this is the place to be!

What Others Say

As always, Jordan loved summer camp at Woodland, and as always, we parents did, too! It was great fun, great physical activity, great learning about responsibility. And the staff are completely low key and flexible to our family's needs. It's such a pleasure to be there! ~ Joey R.

My daughter calls Woodland her "happy place". The animals always look clean and healthy, surrounded by people who truly love, understand and appreciate them. Woodland offers so many exciting opportunities for all levels and ages that the only challenge is finding the time to participate in all the activities. My favorite part as a parent, though, is the supportive and caring staff: I have the peace of mind knowing that my child is always taken care of in the most warm and nurturing way. ~ Masha L.
