It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Dakota.

Dakota, 30, had been living at Madison Fields for the past 5+ years. He was one of a kind & took a lot of riders for their โ€œfirstโ€ official therapeutic riding lesson. He was a barn favorite & was very good at getting anyone to give up their best snacks.

Dakota touched many lives at Madison Fields. It is extremely difficult to imagine our barn without him. If you have any stories, or pictures, you would like to share with us, please feel free. We are going to be creating a shadow box in his honor to be added to our volunteer room.

Please send your stories, condolences, and pictures to [email protected].

Sincerely,
The Madison Fields Equestrian Team

Dear Madison Fields Family,

We are writing to you today to inform you that we said goodbye to two of our very prominent herd members last week.

Shay & Stinky were two of our most popular horses. As their trusted humans, our staff had to make the impossible decision to say goodbye to these two amazing animals, so they may rest peacefully without worry and pain.

Shay & Stinky had been living at Madison Fields for the past 5+ years. Although they have not been seen in lessons for the past couple of years, they were some of our hardest working, and most adored herd members for a reason.

Stinky, the 15 time Virginia Western Pleasure State Champion, loved working with young riders and teaching them how to be independent. Once retired from โ€œhard workโ€ one of his favorite lesson times was during his Hippotherapy classes, when he got to slowly walk around the ring with new riders. He also thoroughly enjoyed his โ€œpaint-the-ponyโ€ classes. Being a short white pony sure did get him a lot of extra love & bath times.

Shay, the been-there-done-that, pony club eventing queen. Our large black Belgian, Thoroughbred cross. Shay came to Madison Fields from a vaulting barn, and took our riders to the next level. Before she retired from riding and became our โ€œparts of the horseโ€ horse, she could be found cantering around the ring at full-speed, showing everyone how graceful a big horse really can be, or rolling in the fresh snow (or indoor footing).

Both of these incredible animals touched many, many lives here, and it is extremely difficult to imagine our barn without them.

If you have any stories, or pictures, you would like to share of these special animals, please feel free. We are going to be creating a shadow box in their honor to be added to our volunteer room.ย 

Sincerely,
Jessica Oyarzo

Over the past few months, our Job Readiness Program worked with this amazing group of young engineers, from Poolesville High School. These young men developed a tool to help our participants label soap in the Soapery. ๐Ÿงผ
They are submitting their project to the Source America competition, a national competition that encourages high schoolers to create functional tools for the workplace, that individuals with disabilities can utilize to help them complete work tasks. Help us wish them luck! ๐Ÿ€

Hi everybody itโ€™s Polly here! Christmas in July has been so exciting! ๐ŸŽ„ One thing about me is I sure do love attention and being around people, itโ€™s pretty apparent, just look at this picture. However, Iโ€™m not too fond of all this attention from all these flies and bugs during this hot summer. For Christmas in July, I requested fly spray to be on the list to help keep the flies away! ๐ŸฆŸโŒ

Happy Monday everybody! ๐Ÿ˜„ It's River & Schatzie here. As Therapeutic Riding horses, we get to enjoy walking and trotting any and everyone who wants a ride. We enjoy being able to use our natural abilities for the delight of others! However, our bodies do take a toll and it's necessary that we have the right equipment and nutrition so we can still enjoy our jobs! Luckily enough Christmas has come early! We would both greatly appreciate bell boots and Cosequin that we put on our Wishlist! ๐ŸŽ„

Our Story

Madison Fields is a local project of Madison House Autism Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the quality of life led by adults with autism across the country. This beautiful 400-acre farm in the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve in Maryland serves as a place of healing, inclusion and growth for those members of our community who donโ€™t often receive the support needed in order to fully participate and contribute. We work with community partners, businesses, and the general public to include, learn from, and work alongside individuals with various levels of ability, including adults with autism, physical disabilities, and wounded veterans. We believe our communitiy is stronger when we are all growing together. We currently offer Equine-Assisted Therapy and Activities, Agricultural Education for students from nearby schools, Job Readiness training for adults with developmental and intellectual challenges, and lots of opportunities for volunteers. We also host community events and gatherings in our historic farm buildings.
