About Us

How it Began

My name is Elizabeth Lipovsky and I am the owner Hogback Mountain Pony Rides, LLC. I grew up Hogback Mountain in Leesburg, Virginia and started riding at a very young age. Later on, I realized  that many children in this area have little, or no experience around equines. So, I decided to give young children and beginning equine enthusiasts a way to interact and learn the basics. My hope is that your experience here is a fun and memorable one! We now have two locations! One location is in Leesburg Virginia and the other is in Pine City, New York!


Ms. Lipovsky has an undergraduate and graduate degree in Education. She is a 4th grade teacher. She is a philanthropist who supports local businesses and non-profits.

We are Licensed and Insured!
