"It’s not just the amenities at Holiday that make this barn so special. It’s the people, and the horses."
Established in 2006, Holiday Stables is a full care equine facility located approximately 10 miles south of Annapolis in Harwood, Maryland. Situated on almost 60 acres of rolling countryside, we have access to hundreds of acres of open and groomed wooded trails. Conveniently close to Baltimore and Washington, the surrounding countryside has been used as foxhunting territory for decades.
Although we are primarily an eventing facility, we also provide boarding, training and lessons. Our certified instructors are available to teach riders of all ages and abilities in all English disciplines as well as Western pleasure. Students can either trailer in with their own horses, or learn on one of our privately owned horses and ponies.
Check out our events page to find out about up-coming shows. We offer hunter/jumper shows, dressage shows, horse trials, and clinics.
Bring your own horses to the B&B! We can field board them for the night. You can school our Cross Country Course or take a relaxing guided trail ride. Cross Country schooling is $35 per horse (riders must wear safety vests and have a grounds person).

"Rita and John, the hosts, are such great people. The place is so beautiful, clean and cozy. The bed was so comfortable, the dogs are so sweet and Rita and John cook a mean breakfast! Highly recommend."
Sam, Arlington, VA - September 2017
"We really enjoyed our stay here. Rita was a great host. We especially loved being able to visit the horses! The location is also quite convenient to Downtown Annapolis and the many wineries in the area."

"Rita and John were fantastic hosts. They are very welcoming and kind. The house and property are absolutely beautiful. Just a short drive from DC, it was wonderful for us to get out of the city. We were in the area for a wedding, and Rita and John shared lots of local advice and made it just so comfortable and easy to stay. We hope to come back when we need a little break from the city!"
