Cross Country Course

Blue Clover Eventing is incredibly lucky to operate out of Sudley Farm. Put simply, it is unrivaled in our area. Working together, we have created a world class eventing training facility and are looking forward to the development of the partnership for years to come! Sudley Farm is located on 130 horse friendly acres in West River, MD and very convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. Staff lives on site at Sudley Farm, and we operate as a private farm, so please make arrangements with Valerie to come for a visit!

For our full training clients, the 12 stall stable includes everything for human and creature comfort. The accommodations include but are not limited to: large equipment areas, wash stalls, grooming areas, even outside patios for your pony! Designed and built by King Constrcution, not a detail was overlooked and we can accommodate any and every equine personality and preference. Our paddocks are complete with run in sheds and overhangs so your horse can stay outside worry-free.

The arenas provide a lot of options, and give each horse and rider the opportunity to make the most out of each training session. The well lit indoor is the size of a regulation standard dressage arena. It boasts state of the art footing, mirrors lining nearly the entire riding area, and a large viewing area. The 125 x 240 outdoor is big enough to set up multiple jump courses let alone individual jumping exercises. The all weather footing makes for an incredible surface to train on year round. Both arenas easily accommodate ship in horses and lessons as well.

There are numerous opportunities for trotting and hacking, either around the vast hay fields or through paths cutting throughout the property. Sudley Farm also boasts the best conditioning hill in the area – whether you trot or gallop your horse is guaranteed to get an incredible work out!

Cross Country Course

The cross country course construction began in the fall of 2013, with the construction of many portable fences replicating what you will negotiate at recognized competitions from Beginner Novice through Training level. There is a highly versatile water jump, as well as ditches and banks to conquer the technical aspects of the sport as well. Additions to the course will be happening over the next few years so that it can accommodate even more levels and add more variety to your schooling experience.

As lovely as Sudley Farm is, Blue Clover Eventing does move south for the winter months of February and March. The climate and footing for these months allow us to train outside and start the competition season much earlier than if we were to stay at Sudley Farm for the entire winter.

For boarding and training, please see my Rates page. For a full list of my credentials, please visit my Highlights page.

I also travel for instruction, coaching, clinics, and to ride client horses at their own facility.
