Lessons & Training

Leslie Deering has been training and teaching for over 30 years. She herself trained with an Olympic gold medalist. Leslie specializes in teaching classical principles while building security and confidence, especially while jumping. Leslie's students have become A pony clubbers and Advanced level three day event riders. In addition to events, the stable attends hunter/jumper and dressage shows. Training horses and riders for foxhunting is another of Leslie's strengths. She's hunted in MD, VA and Ky for over 20 years. Since having her own children she has also found a real joy in developing young riders and ponies and introducing beginners to the pleasure of safe riding across country. Quality horses are often available for lease.

Boarding on Our Farm

Clients come to Glendevon for our expertise and experience and stay for our results, personal support and commitment to quality. They often say that their horses have never been so happy. Please, read their words. All of our clients (2 and 4 legged) become family here. Boarders are only accepted with a lesson or training program with Leslie Deering. We choose to emphasize our knowledge and TLC over our facilities but assure you that our farm is very well equipped to produce and care for advanced level competitors or entry level pleasure riders. Our historic bank barn includes large foaling to pony size stalls, grooming areas with rubber mats and a hot water wash stall with vacuum and washer. We ride and teach in our large outdoor ring with bluestone virtually every day of the year. It’s many lights are bright enough to safely jump a full course at night. We also have a grass dressage ring and assorted cross country jumps. Space is provided for clients to park their trailers. The client tack house has heat and air conditioning, along with frig, microwave and hot beverages. In addition to competitions and hunting, friendly social gatherings and road trips occur frequently in our diverse, but close knit group!

Below is a testimonial from one family ~

  "Our three grand daughters ages 5,9,& 11 attended a week long riding camp. Leslie gave each child individual attention and instruction based on their abilities and level of confidence. They loved it and we loved visiting.

The ponies and horses are gentle and well disciplined.Safety is word one.

The best thing about Glendevon is the family friendly atmosphere. Young Sarah and Jack along with their cats, dogs, goats and chickens all greet you and make you feel at home.

It was refreshing to see a group of kids (there were other campers) supporting each others accomplishments and not just in competition with each other.

This is the place for your young person to not only learn about riding but also get a side order of character building and life experience.

Thank you Leslie,Sarah & Jack for an experience the girls will never forget."
