Below are some answers to questions we most often are asked:  

What discipline does Rolling Acres Farm do?

Rolling Acres is an "A" Circuit Hunter-Jumper barn. 

 

What shows do you go to?

We go to the Florida  Circuit from January to April, starting in Pensacola, then Ocala, and ending in Atlanta.  We also go to the Vermont Summer Festival.  We show locally at Swan Lake, Culpeper, McDonogh, and other sites in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.  Please check our Upcoming Show page for our current schedule.

 

My child is new to riding, is Rolling Acres a good place to start?

Our program is more for riders ready to lease or who already own their own horse or pony and compete at shows.  We recommend beginning riders go to a facility with a lesson package program.  You can check www.Equiery.com for locations in Maryland.

 

My child has been taking lessons and is ready to move up.  How do we see if we'd fit with Rolling Acres?

We request all prospective new clients come take an "Evaluation Lesson" to see if we would make a good team.  You can call Melanie Wright at 301-395-0854 to schedule the evaluation.

 

I'm an adult who has ridden in the past or currently shows in the A/O Divisions.  Would Rolling Acres fit me?

We have a great adult program.  We ask everyone to call for an "Evaluation Lesson" so that we can see if our program would fit your needs.  At that time, we can assess together if our program is what you are looking for.

 

Do you have horses to lease or sale?

Yes, we have horses available to lease or purchase.  Please call Patty Foster at 301-461-7159 to find out what we have available at the time.

Do you rent horses?

We do not rent horses for trail rides or for hourly rental.

 

How much is board?

Board is $725 or $800 per month depending on which barn the stall is located in.

 

Do you have field board?

We only provide stall board at this time.

 

Do you allow outside trainers at Rolling Acres?

Rolling Acres has 3 trainers currently on staff and we do not allow outside trainers onsite unless it's for a sponsored event, such as a clinic.

 

Can I barter stall fees or lessons for work?

Due to insurance constraints, we do not allow working students at this time.
