General Info:
January 23, 2015 I know everyone is tired of me begging for donations and believe me, I am tired of it myself! Unfortunately, seven months later, the circumstances have not changed and I feel I must once again ask for your support. I am still paying rent at Woodlawn Stables and the moving company has yet to complete installing the riding arena lights at Claddagh Farm. The lack of lighting hinders my ability to teach lessons after school/work, when most people are available to enjoy them, therefore I am still unable to generate the necessary income at our new location. It was suggested to me that I might include a small breakdown of what donations are able to provide for the horses and with 24 horses in my care, I will do whatever is necessary to keep them healthy and happy until we are up and running, so here goes:

Great stable!

It's true Woodlawn isn't a ""show team"" stable, but if you are looking for a great riding environment with excellent instructors and healthy, happy horses, this is the place for you. They offer lessons for kids and adults at various levels from beginner to more advanced and they have three shows each year in the spring. I've been riding at Woodlawn for many years now and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The horses are all sweet and the owners and trainers are knowledgeable and...view more caring. It's a great place to learn or re-learn to ride!view less

Don't recommend it.

I came to the barn expecting to find a show team & well-trained horses.

But no, I found old lesson hags & people who barely know how to ride.

I do NOT recommend it to people who want to show or like a fast moving pace. I've been riding for 4 + years there (currently looking to move!) and the highest I've jumped is MAYBE 2ft.

You do no dressage, no eventing, nothing.

So all in all, don't recommend it.

I dont reccomend it

I used to ride at Woodlawn Stables, I wasn't very happy with it. When I first came to Woodlawn, I had been riding for 8 years, I was in a intermidiate class. Most of the girls in my class didn't really know what they were doing, and we weren't jumping very high. I came knowing my lead changes and jumping 2.6ft in shows, and they put me in a class with girls who barely knew their leads. Many of the horse bite, I got bit at least once each lesson. I didn't find the staff very helpful.I d...view moreid NOT enjoy my time at woodlawn. And I know many others who feel the same way. My instructor was lazy and didnt even bother helping with my position. They were not very welcoming either. They do not teach even the basics of horsemanship. If you are a beginner at woodlawn you will spend the whole fist lesson learning about the bridle, when you should be learning much much more. I am VERY glad I left woodlawn. If your a serious rider looking for a good place to ride and show, I dont reccomend Woodlawn.view less

Great stable in the northern VA/DC area!

I've always wanted riding lessons, but my parents could never find a stable close by. Until my friend recommended Woodlawn stables, they are great! The staff is nice, professional and know what there doing , and the horses are well kept for and seem very happy. They have both an indoor and outdoor area, which are in great condition. This is such a great place for kids and adults to learn how to ride horses.

Enjoyable lessons and close by!

I grew up riding and showing. As I got older things got very hectic and it is difficult to fit it all in. Now I take lessons twice a week to keep my legs and seat. I am having a great time. The horses are really good and I have my favorites. I have two different instructors and they both are genuinely interested in helping me become a better rider. They have summer camp and even one for adults! I feel like a kid again.
