Maryland Saddlery opened its doors over 25 years ago in the heart of horse country in Maryland when Hope Birsh, a lifelong horsewoman and riding instructor of many years, identified a need in the horse community: a valuable resource that provides quality riding equipment to riders of all levels and disciplines. Over time horse lovers have come to rely on Hope and the true ‘concierge’ shopping experience she has created, based on cultivating kindness and building genuine human connections. Hope and her staff strive to be ethical, professional, knowledgeable, and informative – they embrace what is at the core of your reason for shopping with them: a love and passion for horses. Whether you are a professional, a ‘pleasure’ rider, or a ‘horse mom’ outfitting your child for their very first show, Maryland Saddlery is your one-stop-shop!

Over the years, Maryland Saddlery has expanded to include consignment locations in both Crofton, Maryland and Hockessin, Delaware. Hope is a clever and nimble businesswoman, naturally tuned in to her customers' wants and needs. Maryland Saddlery is not simply a store – it is a representation of how you shop today: an experiential adventure that delivers valuable items for every price range. Our flagship Butler location also features a clothing boutique that embraces an après-ride (after you ride) concept – we know that there is life beyond riding, so we offer a wonderful variety of clothing and accessories hand-picked to reflect the bold, sassy, and passionate women of Maryland Saddlery. Our furniture and home goods consignment further adds to the location's charm, offering a range of unique treasures representing the culture and style of rural Maryland.
