The Horse Industry Reception returned to Annapolis in February of 2023. The date was February 14th to be exact, and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s day then to share Maryland’s love of horses with our leaders.  Our event was hosted at the Governor Calvert House at Historic Inns of Annapolis. Equine professionals and enthusiasts from every aspect and division of the Horse Industry joined together to educate and engage elected officials about the benefits the industry brings to the state of Maryland. Industry members mingled with legislators at the evening events, and Industry Partners hosted informatic and fun booths, all in the celebration of the horse in Maryland. Maryland truly is a horse state . Please view our full report from the event below.
