Trail Report: Woodstock Equestrian Park, Beallsville, MD

July 29, 2018

Saturday Val hosted a birthday bash competition in celebration of my 40th, and Sunday she met me back at the facility for a morning hack out.

We both rocked our Birthday Bash commemorative t-shirts she had made for everyone (FYI these are so comfortable).

This park has a ton of trails, and we hardly touched them.  we mostly rode around the edges of fields.  Lots of soybeans growing.  We saw a ton of other riders out in small groups too.  This is a very popular park.  If I lived near a park like this I would certainly frequent it too.

The Woodstock Equestrian Park is in Beallsville, Maryland on Darnestown Road in Montgomery County making it a county park.  It has a beginner-novice cross country course set up on six acres, a large 230×350 all weather arena, a gravel parking lot (actually two different ones) and 16 miles of trails through fields and woods and over bridges.  This is all set up on 872 acres.  People can use the park free of charge, and can also opt to rent out parts of it for exclusive use, like Val rented the ring for our use on Saturday.

The photo below cracks me up.  We tried to get both of us and both ponies in the same shot.  Our three faces make me laugh.

Val and I had a nice leisurely ride.  We discussed the need for more one day games events with a competition setting.  Lots of deep games talk.

It was a nice ride.
