Not my first ride, but me on Cupcake at Wheaton Park Stable in 1990. (I was 11 😱)

Felix Geddes, almost four years old, Irvine Nature Center, October 2018

Me (Merrilyn Ratliff) on Squire with my friend Megan Walshe- Plowman at Clover Ridge Stables circa 1991 ❤️

I’m sure Kristy Gapen-Hoke has some good ones!

I remember that pony at Wheaton park!!

Good morning Equiery friends! We are working on a Maryland Horse History feature for our May issue and need your help! Over the next week, we will be posting on Facebook requests for your "throw back" photos from Maryland equine activities such as the Maryland Hunt Cup, Capital Challenge and Fair Hill International .... Maryland trails and jousts and fox hunts ... Maryland Western shows, games rallies, polo meets and more!

So here is how it works: Today we are looking for the OLDEST photos you have of you, your family, and/or friends riding at any COMPETITION in Maryland. At this time, please post only riding competition photos (we will be doing a call for in-hand type classes later).

So dig out those photo albums, take pictures off the walls and upload your photo as a comment here! Be sure to include the date, name of the show and the names of all the people and horses in the photo.

Wonderful idea and contest! We would use the ad to promote our program and the next Mounted Police & Military Veteran Horse Show.

Wow, thank y’all! We’d use the space to encourage readers to stay forward focused and #livelifeunplugged post virus by visiting our gorgeous 115 acre historic farm for lessons, camps and events!🎉🏞🐎🐏🌱🐓🌻

As the owner of Horse Hippie, I have always been focused on my brick and mortar as well as my mobile boutiques, not paying much attention to my online presence. Now, with my physical shop closed, and all of my Spring and Summer mobile venues cancelled, I wish I had done more for my website! I would use the $800 to promote my online business hoping to drive more customers to my webshop.

What a wonderful opportunity, thank you Equiery! Paid ads have always been out of my reach, financially. I would use the ad space to advertise my lesson, training and events focusing on rider biomechanics and positive reinforcement training for all ages and disciplines. #SmallBusinessRelief #MarylandHorses #Backinthesaddle for the win 🥰

Thank you for giving back to the Maryland horse community! Trevi Manor (Lothian, MD) would use the add space to advertise the reinstatement of our monthly dressage clinics with Susan Graham White as well as eventing/jumping clinics typically held several times a year with world class instructors and riders such as Jim Wofford, Phillip Dutton, and Jennie Brannigan. Our clinics are always free to auditors! Thank you!

What a generous offer! This is definitely a tough time for horse businesses of all kinds. I would advertise our boarding services, training, and lessons and the continuing new amenities coming to our already wonderful farm! We will also be hosting a freestyle clinic with Christine Betz and Michael Matson once all restrictions have been lifted. 😊
