Tim and Tracey have been residents of Maryland for the past 20 years. Tim was an officer in the Army, stationed at Aberdeen. When his duty was completed, they liked Harford County so much that they decided to stay and make it their home and raise their family. He is still connected to the military, but as a civilian government contractor. Tracey’s roots are from New Jersey, where she grew up on a small farm raising a few cows and her true love, Pawnee a Paint Mare, who she would spend her spare time riding through the fields of the flower farm adjacent to her parent’s farm. She is also excited to call Maryland home for the past 20 years. Tracey is a teacher in Harford County, but her true passion is on the farm. Tim and Tracey love Harford County and are excited to offer Molly Hill to the community as a full-care equestrian center.
Molly Hill is the name of the farm in Beaufort, South Carolina, where Tim’s roots began. To honor his family and tradition they named their farm after his homestead. Molly Hill (North) is a 50-acre equestrian center, located in Whiteford, Maryland. Molly Hill offers a full care board with 2 barns with 12 X 12 stalls, wash stalls with hot and cold water, a heated and air-conditioned tack room, two outdoor riding rings with lights and an indoor riding ring. Molly Hill offers lessons and training with our certified trainer, Karen Zinkhan.
“When your horse follows you without being asked, when he rubs his head on yours,
and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine . . . you know you are loved.”
