“I used to board at By Chance 10 years ago, or so. Then I moved out of state. I just moved back to Md and I am happy to have my horse back at By Chance Farm.”

“My horse has been living at By Chance Farm since 2014 and is completely happy there – he enjoys long days in his big turnout with his best pony friend, high quality/plentiful feed adjusted to his preferences and needs, and a pretty view from his stall. The staff pays attention to his feet, his turnout wear, his eating habits and general mood and communicates any issues to me promptly. My horse & I take advantage of the scenic hacking trails through the woods and fields, along with using the plentiful jumps and poles in the rings.”

“By Chance Farm has been so instrumental in my riding career, horsemanship, my personal confidence, and executing my future goals in the sport. The care my horse receives is of the highest quality and the staff is always sending updates and are so proactive in ensuring all of the horses are feeling their best. I am a full time student as well and working each day and it is so nice to have the security of the attentive and involved barn staff, wonderful and knowledgeable vets, and the best farrier. Michele and Charlene are always looking for ways to improve the farm and the facilities are maintained so well that they look brand new.”

“My husband and I have had the pleasure of boarding three horses at By Chance Farm over the course of the past four years. We have had experience with both stall and field boarding, and, in both, we have been delighted with our horses’ care. Individualized and compassionate care of our horses, with great attention to detail (picking up the earliest signs of injury or illness, adverse reactions to immunizations etc.) combined with excellent and impeccably maintained physical facilities have enabled us to feel privileged to call BCF our horses’ home. I recommend By Chance Farm as a boarding facility most highly, and without reservation.”
