Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ



Absolutely! Please come during daylight hours and take care to read our posted rules before entering the barn. Some of the rules include: no touching or feeding, and large groups must break into small groups of four or five people at a time. All children must be supervised by an adult. Strollers, bikes, umbrellas, and non-service dogs are not permitted in the barn.
Generally speaking, our weight limit is 230 lbs, but we can not guarantee that we can accommodate that weight at all times. Horses, just like people, come in all shapes and sizes. Our weight limit is sometimes determined by which horses are available for certain activities. To give an example, we may have two horses available who can carry 200 lbs, but we may not have more than that. On some days, we may not have any horses who can carry that weight. If we are unable to accommodate your weight, we reserve the right to cancel any scheduled ride.
Yes, but you need a reservation. Reservations are made online and rides may have restrictions, including age minimums. Please carefully read the pony, trail, or lesson section before making your reservation.
Our rides are very popular and often book out many weeks (sometimes months) into the future. When rides are reserved, the calendar will list the date as ‘unavailable’. The calendar displays in real-time, so your view is accurate. Any newly-released spaces will immediately become visible, so checking back later may yield new results.
Yes! We have an active volunteer community for youth and adults that engages in a variety of activities ranging from cleaning and supporting the barn staff to assisting with our riding program. All prospective volunteers must first attend a New Volunteer Orientation. See Volunteer Programs
Trail Rides, Pony Rides, & One-Time Private Lessons

Your appointment is very important to our staff and volunteer team; it is reserved especially for you. We understand that schedule adjustments are sometimes necessary; therefore, we respectfully request advance notice if you cannot make your appointment so we can make the slot available to others who are waiting for one of these coveted rides.

You can cancel/reschedule the reservation online up to 48 hours in advance. For more last minute cancellations/reschedules, please call us at 202-362-0117 by 11:00 a.m. on the day prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of your cancellation. (You may also email [email protected] if this is more convenient.) Note that the $5  nonrefundable fee per each registration participant will not be refunded.

If notification is not given by 11 am the day before your appointment, you will be charged full-price for the missed appointment.
