Meet Our Instructors


Renee Wilson is the owner of The Farmyard. She began riding at age 9 and convinced her father that a black and white pony would “blend in with the cows.” Growing up, she and her sister enjoyed trail riding and competing at local fun shows. She also rode for the University of Florida’s Western Equestrian team in college.

Linda Snyder has been been involved with the equine industry for over 25 years. She offered a riding, breeding and training program in Baltimore County with POAs (Pony of Americas). She also has two sons who enjoyed showing horses and continue to show dairy goats and dairy cattle.
