Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail

The Maryland Historic Horse Trails are a network of self-guided trails being developed around the state with the support of the Maryland Horse Industry Board to illustrate the historic role of horses in the state’s economy and culture. The Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail encompasses Calvert, Charles, Prince George's and St. Mary's counties.* A printed guide book and website highlight documented equine-related sites and educational opportunities in the region and are part of a state-wide historical archive of the role of horses in Maryland's history.

The first issue of the printed guide book for the Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail will be combined with SMADC’s Southern Maryland Equine Directory, a listing of local stables, horse farms and other equine resources in the five southern counties.

Program highlights include:

  • a Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trails website that coordinates with similar regional trails websites across Maryland
  • a printed brochure/guidebook showcasing the Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail sites and additional tidbits, features, stories, photos and more (Printed in conjunction with the SMSG Equine Directory)

*SMADC’s mission and programs generally encompass all five Southern Maryland counties, however, for this initiative, Anne Arundel County will produce a separate trail and so is not included in the Southern Maryland trail. Please contact Ross Peddicord at The Maryland Horse Industry Board ( or 410-841-5798) for more information on the Anne Arundel Horse History Trail.
