The Potomac Horse Center

Creating Stable Beginnings Then and Now

The Potomac Horse Center is about beginnings. It is a place where visitors experience their first connection with a horse; a place where you feel the exhilaration of learning to ride, and it puts a smile on your face for days. It is a place where you relish in the thrill of the moment your instructor says, "you’re ready to canter!" It is a place where you spend your first summer camp and meet your new best friend. Potomac Horse Center is a place where people and horses thrive together.


The Center helps create renowned equestrians like Sally O’Connor and her sons, David – Olympic Champion, and Brian – well-known announcer in International equestrian events. We build confidence through therapeutic riding and joyful interactions and provide the foundation for riders, camp participants, trainers, instructors, and barn staff to develop essential skills – equine, athletic, team-building and more. 


Potomac Horse Center delivers a unique experience and a beginning that empowers us to journey successfully through life’s adventures. We provide new beginnings for our horses too – offering them a healthy environment, stability and a career with just the right fit.


Since we opened our barn doors in the late 1950s to who we are today, Potomac Horse Center is about beginnings. Even better, we’re about stable beginnings.

Please join us as we revitalize the Center and help us ensure that we continue to bring stable beginnings to our customers today and to generations to come.
