About Courtney Deneault, owner of Maryland Riding Academy
Thank you for visiting! My name is Courtney Deneault. I started competing in the hunter ring and then branched out to show in hunters, side saddle. I was named Champion Maiden Rider at my first International Side Saddle Organization's Ride Aside at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. Among this prestigious award, I also was named High Point Rider of the Year, Bon Bon II Award, Benjamin Memorial Trophy, Fancy Thoughts TB Trophy, and I took 6 year old Express Jet to win Thoroughbred of the Year, just to name a few.
Not only do students learn to ride in a correct and effective way but all are also taught techniques of overall horsemanship - grooming, tacking up and the types of equipment and accessories we use, feeding, cleaning, braiding, safety, overall care of a horse...and have a blast learning all about horses!
Frequent 'field trips' are offered to go to shows, events, expos, clinics, demonstrations, etc. throughout the year. All students, leasees, and workers are always welcome to attend!
