Racing through History in Baltimore County's Horse Country

Horses approach a timber fence during a race at Shawan Downs.

As the home to over nine thousand horses, it's no surprise that Baltimore County exemplifies the Maryland equestrian tradition. The beauty of the countryside, the excitement, and the festive atmosphere make steeplechase and timber racing in Baltimore County must-attend events during the region's beautiful spring season. Don't miss out on this unique tradition, dating back to the first running of the Maryland Hunt Cup in 1894.
