2016 Forrest Hall Farm Crazy Corn Maze
WALK, TROT, CANTER OR GALLOP
This year’s maze design and theme is in celebration of Southern Maryland’s newest heritage trail, The Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail; highlighting Southern Maryland destinations in which horses played a vital role in our culture and history.
The “Hoofbeats Through History” heritage trail is not just for horse lovers or history lovers, it’s for anyone who wants to learn and discover our unique horse history. The horse heritage trail offers stops that were part of the Pony Express and stage coach routes, military and war time events, long ago race tracks, the birth of our official state sport “Jousting”, and even the place where the first horses brought from England set foot in the new land. You will even visit a church the British used to stable their horses! Lord Calvert brought over these “first horses” and have served us well in agriculture, transportation and recreation for nearly 400 years.
The importance of horses is evidenced even today in our Amish and Mennonite communities. The horse industry in Maryland provides great opportunities for racing and show for one of the world’s most beautiful and best loved animals.
Exploring the trail will also lead to destinations that offer long standing therapeutic riding programs and fox hunts or “riding to the hounds”. The Southern Maryland Historic Horse Trail is the newest regional horse trail in the statewide Maryland Historic Horse Trails, a collection of regional trails featuring historically significant horse-related destinations.
In concert with the heritage trail, The Southern Maryland Equine Guide provides a listing of trails, opportunities and events where HORSES REIGN! This guide lists active working stables and farms, camps and riding lessons. The guide also provides a listing of horse themed events and activities and officially designated horse discovery centers where visitors can interact with horses in a safe, knowledgeable, friendly environment. The guide even provides for local riding clubs, trainers and judges, horse rescues, hay and straw producers, TAC shops and veterinary services.
So come join us and WALK, TROT, CANTER OR GALLOP through our maze, celebrating all that horses have contributed to our history and offer to our future!
