MERRYMOUNT EQUESTRIAN CENTER
By the time Natalie was four, I knew I had to find an equestrian center that would allow her to explore her love for horses. She took her very first lessons at Merrymount Equestrian Center, and we've been with them ever since. (At the time of writing this post, Natalie is almost 13). Merrymount has the same principle values that I want to instill in Natalie (and myself). Work hard, stay focused, don't worry about getting dirty, be confident and positive, and stay genuine and kind to yourself, animals, and land.
If you, your child, or whoever is thinking about taking riding lessons and are hoping to show up to a barn, get on a horse and ride, Merrymount might not be the barn for you. I've always liked and appreciated that Natalie has to learn and care for all aspects of equestrian care and I think she does too.
Merrymount Equestrian Center has been in operation since 1960. It is located in the historic "Rosaryville" area of Upper Marlboro, the heart of Southern Maryland horse country just a short distance from the nation's capital.
The Merrymount equestrian center maintains a family-friendly atmosphere, offering diverse activities for all ages. At the core of the operation is the Equestrian School, which is an English (Hunt Seat) riding academy. For the past fifty-three years, we have taught young and not-so-young riders from all over the Greater Washington area the joys of riding. The school operates year round with an indoor arena for winter and inclement weather use.
