Things to know!

Lisbon Horse Parade Saturday December 7!

Right now, the parade will go on, rain or shine. However, organizers will reconsider this evening and if it is to be canceled, a notice will be posted on and on

If you are coming to watch the parade, please stop by The Equiery for some holiday hospitality and to visit with our Holiday vendors (select December advertisers). We are located at 16008 Frederick Rd, Lisbon, MD 21765, and will have front row seats for the parade!

Off-The-Track Thoroughbred Survey

This is the most comprehensive survey ever done on the post-race life of Thoroughbreds bred for the track. The Thoroughbred is the most prolific breed in Maryland and it is our state horse. If you have such a Thoroughbred (and it is hard not to in Maryland), please take a few moments to fill out this survey. So far, over 3,600 horses have been included in the study. Please encourage everyone you know to participate.  The survey is being conducted by the Retired Racehorse Training Project, and the results will be published in The Equiery.
