October is Maryland Horse Month

With Preakness in October this year, the Maryland Million, legendary point-to-point and steeplechase racing, and amazing trail riding at Maryland Horse Discovery Centers, there’s no better time to connect to Maryland’s historic horse scene than now. OTD has joined with multiple partners around the state, including the Maryland Horse Industry Board and the Maryland Department of Agriculture, to promote horse-related and horse racing events all month. The kick-off of Maryland Horse Month was celebrated at Fair Hill in Elkton with a presentation of the Governor’s Proclamation. For more information on Maryland Horse Month, click on the link below.
