Woodstock Equestrian Special Park sits in the heart of the scenic Agricultural Reserve, just north of the historic town of Beallsville. The park features 872 acres of rolling farmland and forest, 16 miles of equestrian and hiking trails, three horse-friendly bridges, and two parking lots, with entrances marked by monuments on each side of Route 28.
The Woodstock arena, cross country course, and trails are open to the public from dawn to dusk every day. Unless otherwise noted, feel free to use any or all of the park’s features. To check the availability of the arena or cross country course, call the Park Permit Office between 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at 301-495-2525.
Outdoor Riding Ring & Cross Country Course
The William Rickman Equestrian Center Entrance (on the east side of the park) includes a 230-by-350-foot outdoor riding ring and a 6-acre beginner-novice cross country course which includes bank jumps and a water jump.
Historic buildings pepper the grounds of Woodstock Equestrian Park. Seneca Stone Barn, which was stabilized by the department in 2009, sits on the west side of Route 28 near Wasche Road. The historic structures that make up Brewer Farm, located on the east side of Route 28, were renovated and secured for equipment storage.
