The Maryland Combined Training Association (MCTA) organizes a nationally recognized Horse Trials in May at Shawan Downs in Hunt Valley, Maryland. This competition offers all levels, Novice through Advanced. The club also manages two “unrecognized” horse trials — the Starter Horse Trials in June in Southern Maryland and one in November held at Tranquility Manor Farm in Jacksonville Maryland. “Jenny Camp” as the fall horse trials is known, is one of the oldest competitions of its kind in the area.
MCTA also holds numerous clinics and webinar series such as Equine First Aid and Safely Returning to Competition.
