Meet Glenda Player
Resident Trainer and Manager
Raised at Playland Equestrian Center, Glenda has been riding since childhood. As a young rider, she was an active member of the Frederick Pony Club and graduated with her ‘B’ rating. Since then, she has focused much of her riding in the dressage and eventing disciplines while breaking and bringing along many Playland homebreds. She has trained with some of the best-of-the-best in the equestrian world, and considers herself to be one of the lucky people in the world that gets to make her passion her profession.
What Clients Are Saying
"I rode at Playland when I was in college, and when I was ready to return to riding later in life, Glenda was the first person I called. The environment here is so welcoming, and she has the expertise to offer every student in her program a challenging and thoughtful lesson."
