The Potomac Horse Center Foundation, Inc.

The recently established 501(c)(3) Potomac Horse Center Foundation, Inc.* is operating in partnership with Potomac Horse Center.

(*pending tax-exempt notification)


We are working to find a path forward and continue the remarkable legacy set in motion by F.G. "Stretch" Harting over 60 years ago. Founded in the late 1950s, PHC quickly became a world-renowned premiere international equestrian center.


Currently operated through the direction of the Novograd family of New York City's Claremont Riding Academy, the Potomac Horse Center Foundation, Inc. continues the tradition of excellence.


As a certified Maryland Horse Industry Board Horse Discovery Center, we welcome riders of all ages and invite the community at large to visit us and experience these magnificent animals. We firmly believe that horses and horseback riding should be available to all; you do not need to own a horse to enjoy this lifelong sport.

While we are operating with a modified facility, our lesson program remains uninterrupted and our horses continue to receive the outstanding care they deserve.

Our Programs


60 Years Of Equestrian Heritage

The heart of Potomac Horse Center is an extensive teaching program featuring riding classes for "Mini Mites" - 5 to 8 year old children - through adults of all levels. In addition, a strong classical dressage program, combined training, and a hunter/jumper program are available with riders competing under different trainers on both the "A" and local hunter/jumper circuits.


We offer a variety of activities with approximately 12 horse shows a year and a busy calendar of clinics featuring internationally recognized clinicians in many disciplines. PHC also offers other recreational activities such as birthday parties, individual pony rides, open houses, a summer horse camp program, therapeutic horseback riding, and more. Stop in and visit us any time!
