Hunting Ground Farm is a 68-acre family-run horse farm located in the rolling hills of Harford County, MD. Our picturesque pastures and grazing horses lead to a lasting impression that can only be found here in the heart of horse country. Now entering our 27th year, our focus is on training and showing hunters.
We are proud to host and attend horse shows year round. Our lesson students, boarders, and leasors all enjoy considerable sucesses on our local and rated show circuits.
Here at HGF, we stress solid basics on riders and good horse skills on the ground. Riding is meant to be enjoyable, and that is a goal we strive to meet with every lesson. We have wonderful lesson horses for virtually every level of rider. Our boarding is known throughout the county as simply top-notch.
