“I recently participated in a clinic with Stephen Bradley at Playland Farm and was impressed with the friendly, professional atmosphere at the farm. The grounds were nicely manicured, horses well cared for, and the people were all nice and accommodating. Glenda ensured my horse’s comfort overnight, confirming with me as to whether I would prefer her in a stall or paddock. I very much enjoyed my time there and will certainly go back!” – Laura D., Fairfax, VA
