I’m going to preface this post by stating up front that I know nothing about horseback riding. Sure, I’ve been on a horseback before, I managed to survive without falling off, but that doesn’t make me qualified to speak with any authority about the subject.
What I do know is that there’s a great spot in Huntingtown, MD that offers lessons, and will even supply the horse if you don’t own one yourself. That place is Lucky Cricket Farm, a 30 acre equestrian center in beautiful Calvert County.
I know better than to pretend I understand what horseback riding lessons entail, so I would highly recommend you go straight to the experts on this one and check out Lucky Cricket Farm’s website for additional information, but here is the basic information about classes, prices, times, and so forth.
Riders and Drivers accepted at age 6, no upper age limit.
