Linden Farm Riding Academy

Established in September 2000, the Riding Academy has grown to over 100 students.  Our students range in age from 3 years old to 63.  Designed to introduce young people and adults to the wonderful world of horsemanship, Linden offers riding programs for students of all levels.  Programs include:

  • Hunt-seat
  • Sidesaddle
  • Over Fences
  • Driving
  • Lease program

Classes are held every day of the week--some are for adults only.  Whether you prefer to ride in the morning and evening, our schedule of classes is designed to accomodate your busy schedule.  All classes are semi-private with no more than four students per instructor per class.

Our facilities are among the finest in Charles County.  

Our horses and riders earned 14 grand championships and 12 reserve championships overall at the local Mounted Wanderers 4-H show in Hughesville in 2017 and English Hi-Point Conformation Horse.  We are looking forward to another successful season in 2018! Come join our Equestrian Team
