Welcome to Olney Farm

an eventing facility for families and competitors

Olney Farm and the Shriver-Howard family joined together in 1855. Since then, the farm has remained in the same family. In 1920, a pony breeding business was started by the youngest, a daughter, in the family. Boarding, lessons, breeding and training has gone on continuously since then. The fourth, fifth and sixth generations of the family live on the farm. The farm has always been managed by a member of the family.

The farm is basically a family farm, sharing the love of kids, ponies, dogs, cats and farm animals, welcoming adult and junior riders and their families to share the pleasure of our almost 200 acres of fields and woods. Our instructors have grown up on the farm, taking their first lessons on an Olney pony, leaving only temporarily to raise their own families or to gain experience in the "outside" horse world.

We are an eventing-oriented facility; running a recognized and an unrecognized event on the farm and clinics during the year with top event and dressage riders and coaches. We have an indoor lighted ring, an outdoor lighted dressage ring and a large jumping ring. There are four complete cross country courses, elementary, beginner novice, novice and training; with many preliminary level jumps for schooling. There are trails through the woods and on an adjoining farm whose owner kindly lets us ride on his property – places for conditioning as well as pleasure rides. We offer riding and driving lessons, training, boarding, breeding and coaching at events and shows. We would love to show you our farm!
