Statement to Horse Industry in Response to Executive Order on Non-Essential Businesses

Governor Larry Hogan ordered all non-essential businesses to close by 5 p.m. March 23, 2020. While farms and the agriculture and food supply chains are considered essential, commercial and recreational riding centers and stables should prepare to suspend their operations to the public. Horse care, boarding facilities and other operations that provide self-care boarding for privately-owned horses are considered essential and should continue operations while implementing safety measures that promote social distancing and other best practices.

See the Maryland Department of Health and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information. Any questions related to specific businesses can be sent to
