You do not have to show to ride with Quiet Meadow Farm, but if you do...we take your goals seriously.
We are a barn-family of mostly adult amateur riders and teens. Many of our riders rode as a kid and are getting back into it now as an adult, or enjoying owning a horse in training/showing ridden by our professional rider, Stefanie Portman. Our younger riders have come to us from different farms and greatly improved their riding and abilities with our teaching methods, focus on horsemanship and a proper foundation, and education along the way.
For our rider's that do show, we've had horses and riders with numerous year-end State, National and World Championships. Many OPHA, Zone, Horse of the Year, and NAL/WIHS championships and top 10's, championships at Devon, AQHA Congress, AQHA 3x World Champion, and making it to Harrisburg/D.C. Indoor Finals year after year.
