MHC/METS Booth at the MD State Fair:  August 23 – September 3
We are planning to have a booth at Horseland 2018!  This is a great way to support the MHIB’s efforts to introduce the general public to our amazing industry, to share the benefits of MHC membership, and to introduce METS to horse enthusiasts. Of course, being at the Maryland State Fair makes it even more fun. Times are available from 9am to 9pm. We need volunteers to hand out coloring books, explain the Equiery scavenger hunt, and represent the horse council to the general public.  SIGN UP HERE

College Day at the Races:  Saturday, August 25th
The MHC/Equiery is proud to sponsor a $1000 scholarship to be awarded at this inaugural event. Fashioned after Keeneland’s College Day, the program is designed to engage youth in racing and will include food, free admission to the fair, activities, tours, betting tips, and scholarship drawings before each race. Volunteers are needed for check-in, tours, and activities.  SIGN UP HERE
