Harwood Farm Featured in Equine Journal

We’ve been featured in the Equine Journal’s story “Your Chariot Awaits,” (see page 66)  a guide to planning a fairy tale wedding with a horse-drawn carriage.

Excerpt: “They are just so romantic,” emphasizes Maxine Walker, owner of Harwood Farm, an equestrian facility and wedding venue located in Woodbine, Maryland.  “There’s an ambiance of magic and romance, between seeing the beautiful carriage, and hearing the clip-clop of the horse’ hooves.”

Harwood Farm was the perfect setting for my son’s wedding reception.  Maxine was so easy to work with, from planning, to set up the day before, throughout the event itself and even clean up the following day.  We had so many compliments from our guests on the beauty of the property as a backdrop for the couple’s special day. Thanks so much Maxine!!!…..Diane Gaspard
