About Keep Stables and Holly Linz

Keep Stables LLC has been in operation at Chapel View Farm, 2610 Jennings Chapel Road, Woodbine MD 21797 since early 2015. We offer boutique field and stall boarding set back on over 70 rolling acres, as well as training opportunities for horses and riders. 

Horse Boarding Facility in Woodbine MD, convenient to Gaithersburg, Frederick, and Baltimore : 

Amenities include a large, lit and well maintained bluestone/rubber footed outdoor arena, hot water washrack, individual tack space, a custom tailored feed program including high quality forage and feeds, indoor restrooms and lounge facilities for boarders, and a very supportive atmosphere of people committed to the well being of all the horses and riders on the farm. Our barns are well lit, with great ventilation, making them as natural for horses as possible. We manage small herds, focusing on finding the right living situation for each horse so they can thrive in their environments and are able to be happy, willing partners. Healthy, happy horses and riders are our primary goal! 

The property also enjoys direct access to miles of trails ranging from open fields to wooded areas and streams, via the Patuxent River State Park trail network and adjacent farms for unlimited cross training opportunities right off the farm! 

Is Keep Stables for you?

We welcome all disciplines, from trail/pleasure riders to competitive riders. Anyone dedicated to the well being of their horse and committed to improving their horsemanship is welcome. Our number one requirement is for our boarders to be respectful and supportive of fellow riders and committed to the well being of all horses and riders on the farm!

We can help you find your next equine partner or the perfect home for your current horse. We have active groups of riders preparing for competition at recognized Dressage and Working Equitation shows, trekking out into the parkway on nearly a daily basis, and some folks committed to keeping their basics sharp in the arena just in hand. We offer a dynamic environment that supports all forms of goals. Training opportunities are regularly available for horses and riders. If developing a happy, healthy, and productive horse is your number one priority, no matter what the goal may be, then KeepStables may be for you!
