The trails are unique to this area... More

Anne & Margo are caring and commited to safety. The horses are gentle and the trails and arena are well cared for. Have been riding here and taking lessons with grand daughter from both women for five years. This is the best barn we have found within 75 miles of Ocean City Maryland

Our instructor was friendly and gave us a pre-riding lesson with a horse mannequin. The ride was on a shaded, wooded trail. However, it was quite difficult to hear our instructor talk about the trail while riding. It was a nice touch that the instructor offered to take our picture on the horses after the ride.

My daughter and I were going to Ocean city for a few days and thought it would be fun to take a trail ride. I emailed Holly Ridge Farm about a week before we left for the trip. They replied and said they needed at least a 24 hr. notice and to call them. I called on a Friday morning... More

I first met Anne Luke in 2002. I was looking for a riding instructor for a friend's daughter's first equine experience. Holly Ridge Farm Equestrian Center's name was given to me by three different sources, as I queried local Equine related organizations. What struck me about Ms. Luke and Holly Ridge was that "safety" was their first, second and third... More

The horseback trail ride was one of the highlights of my family's OC vacation this year. The owners (in particular Anne and Margo) were extremely kind, patient, knowledgeable, and funny. We had such a good time, laughing, talking, riding. They are very serious about safety and caring for the horses and they made us feel so comfortable and welcome. We... More

I enjoyed my time at Holly Ridge Farm and I can't wait to visit them again. I think every family should visit here at least once in their lifetime.
