Attention: Owners of Lesson Stables, Guided Trail Rides, Carriage Companies

Time to Ride Challenge Doubles in Size, Offers Cash Opportunities for Business Owners If you offer gateway programs (programs that introduce non-horse people to horses, such as guided trail rides, lessons for beginners, summer riding programs or camps, carriage rides, or spectator events), then the national Time To Ride Challenge program is for you, and can help provide you with some funding. The Challenge will award $100,000 in cash and prizes to horse professionals who can generate the most “newcomer” interactions with horses, and bring them back for a follow-up experience to encourage further participation. A plethora of breed, discipline, and professional organizations have partnered with Time to Ride to substantially grow awards available to Challenge Hosts. Marketing Alliance Members participating in the CAP are American Quarter Horse Association and US Equestrian, as well as Marketing Alliance Program Partners American Paint Horse Association, Mustang Heritage Foundation, and National Reining Horse Association. Thirteen other organizations have joined forces to provide their members with additional cash and prizes: American Saddlebred Horse Association, Appaloosa Horse Club, Arabian Horse Association, Paso Fino Horse Association, Certified Horsemanship Association, Carriage Operators of North America, Interscholastic Equestrian Association, Michigan State Horse Council, North Carolina State Horse Council, Pinto Horse Association of America, United States Dressage Federation, United States Pony Club, and Wisconsin State Horse Council. Each group will award prizes...

BALTIMORE COUNTY RESIDENTS!! OF INTEREST!!
RURAL ROADS MEETING!!
Tonight, Baltimore County will hold its annual Rural Roads Meeting at the Ag Center from 5:30-7:30.
It is important for residents to show up and express appreciation for the information exchange and to reiterate the need to adhere to rural road design standards that preserve the character of our rural, historic area. Without such adherence, our roads are subject to improvements, that over time, result in substantial widening, straightening, flattening, and increased volumes and speeds of traffic. The county has been responsive to the Valleys Planning Council in their push for improvements that match the settings and limit roadway expansions.
It is also important for residents to express support for the roundabout planned for the Tufton/Greenspring/Worthington intersection. This intersection has long been a concern due to rush hour congestion and the need for daring left turns. A light was a potential solution, but at this location at the entrance to the Worthington Valley, along the Horses and Hounds Scenic Byway, and surrounded by a most spectacular landscape and hundreds of acres under conservation easement, a more fitting option was needed. The VPC hired consultants to design an appropriate roundabout, which will be a modified single-lane with a planted center island. It promises to be an improvement in both safety and flow, and, unlike a light, will not require vehicles to sit and wait in non-rush-hour times, when there is often no need to come to a full stop. The roundabout will serve as a traffic calming device and is considered a context-sensitive solution within the Worthington Valley National Register Historic District.
The Rural Roads Meeting is run like an Open House. There’s no presentation, so you can pop in, stop by a few stations to see what roads are in line for resurfacing and which bridges are scheduled for repair. So please drop in, make a point to speak to the Public Works staff at the stations, and express gratitude for the county’s willingness to help retain the feel of our rural roads.

Racing Rocked Annapolis

By Tom LaMarra (originally published on tharacing.com, the official website for the national Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association). The Maryland racing industry’s efforts to educate lawmakers and present a unified front paid off during the 2017 General Assembly session that ended April 10. The Budget Reconciliation and Financing Act contained several provisions that, had they passed, would have shifted money from the Purse Dedication Account, which is funded by a percentage of video lottery terminal revenue at the state’s six casinos. On the table was a recommendation for the industry, not the state, to pay about $2.5 million for Maryland Racing Commission operations, and another to strike a 2016 legislature-approved measure for the Maryland Lottery to pay $500,000 for a Preakness Stakes bonus for Maryland-bred or -sired runners that compete in the race, and $500,000 to revive an international turf stakes at Laurel Park. As a result of negotiations, the state will continue to fund the racing commission and the combined $1 million for the bonus and what is being called the Maryland International will still come from the Maryland Lottery. Representatives of the Thoroughbred and Standardbred industries spent quite a bit of time in Annapolis during the winter and early spring to make the case that racing and breeding is making a comeback, and denting the purse account would be detrimental to the industry...
