In Maryland, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for, but nothing more than our beautiful horses, our four-legged furry companions, and this land of pleasant living we call home. And for more than 150 years, Marylanders have come together on Thanksgiving to bless our beloved horses and hounds. With riders resplendent in their traditional garb and pups eager to hit the trail, it’s a stirring authentic Maryland tradition.
