World of Pets Expo
Maryland State Fair Ground
2200 York Rd, Lutherville-Timonium, MD 21093
We have an exciting opportunity for Licensed Stables and Horse Industry Partners, to be a part of World of Pets Expo! The MHIB has a corner booth space near the 4H Pony Rides and will host a mini Horseland with our Horse Discovery Centers in the World of Pets Expo!
Horseland is designed to introduce new people to horses and the horse industry. MHIB’s three primary functions are Regulatory: to license and inspect the state’s commercial lesson, boarding, rental and rescue facilities that solicit business from the public. Advisory: to brief the Maryland Department of Agriculture and other state officials on issues regarding the Maryland horse industry and Promotional: to market, bring awareness to and help grow the state’s equine industry.
Surrounding the 4-H pony rides we will have tables where children of all ages can make stick horses and jump a miniature course, dress in jockey silks, ride a simulated racehorse and learn where they can get involved with our Horse Discovery Centers (HDC’s). In addition, people will be made aware of Maryland’s almost 800 licensed farms, stables and organizations in their neighborhoods where they could learn to ride, work with and learn more about horses. Other Horse Industry groups and organizations will have booths near the Horseland corner and have information about getting involved.
MHIB’s Horse Discovery Center’s will be there and you can find out how YOU can have horses in your life. HDC’s centers are carefully selected, licensed stables that are welcoming people of all ages and experience levels into their barns to learn about horses in a friendly and knowledgeable environment. The breadth and diversity of the stables in the Discovery Center network is wide and deep. They range from trail riding centers to Western riding operations to horse rescues and stables offering summer camps, English equitation, even Civil War re-enactments. Geographically they are located in all regions of the state.
