On Saturday, October 5, equestrian enthusiasts will gather at The Graham Equestrian Center for Day of the Horse, a festival featuring horse demonstrations, a silent auction, food vendors, hay rides, a petting zoo, and plenty of kid-friendly activities. Children younger than 12 are admitted for free.
The Graham Equestrian Center
As a part of the Maryland state-park system, The Graham Equestrian Center allows riders to navigate the several miles of trails winding throughout Gunpowder Falls State Park. The center draws its name from Dr. Albert Graham, who deeded his farm and 22-stall barn to the park system in order to help fortify the bond between Maryland citizens and their natural surroundings.
Through horseback-riding lessons, the center's trainer, Jim McDonald, educates children and adults on all aspects of horsemanship and horse management, from basic riding techniques to advanced grooming methods. His lessons and events also help riders understand herd dynamics as they strengthen relationships with both horses and their landscape.
