In a move that surprises no one who survived the Cecil County Horse Park debates almost decade ago, the Cecil County Council (according to the Cecil Whig) barely passed (3 to 2) a vote in favor of supporting Fair Hill’s formal inclusion in the “Maryland Horse Park System.”

What is ironic is that Fair Hill already is part of Maryland’s system of horse parks. There is nothing substantial about this label that would alter Fair Hill as we know it. The label merely codifies what is already a reality: that Maryland has a robust system of horse parks throughout the state. Giving this network a formal name (The Maryland Horse Park System) simply enables a cohesive marketing approach, so that the Maryland Horse Industry Board can market the entire state as an alternative venue to Kentucky or Florida.
