"Great Place":  Woodland Horse Center, Silver Spring, Montgomery
County, is a great place to learn how to ride, improve your skills or have
just plain fun.  The horses are well cared for.  Some may not look it your
first time out, but that's because you didn't see the horse when it came to
the facility from auction or other sources.  They truly care about the
horses.  There has been amazing transformations of horse and people
that go to Woodland.

The instructors are top notch and are great with children.  This place is
definitely for the whole family.  They offer lessons for adults, teen-agers,
and even the little ones in Pony Pals".  I've been riding there for 17 years
and my daughter has grown up at the barn.  They provide more than just
the experience of riding.  They also teach respect and responsibility of the
horses.  Kids develop great character and confidence in themselves.  I
can not begin to list all the benefits and programs Woodland has to offer.

If you are thinking about taking riding lessons, Woodland Horse Center is
the place to go!    -Patty B.
