New for 2022! Christmas Parade Costume class for horses and riders held at noon on Saturday and Sunday! Bring your horse's best costume and parade around the ring for a chance to win some great prizes! Helmets are required for all mounted riders.
On Saturday and Sunday, after the Christmas Parade, we will host the first ever dog costume class! Bring your best dressed dog(s) for a change to win prizes for humans and dogs alike! All dogs must be leashed.
Description of MDHT Cross Derby courses: All rings will have cross country obstacles you would find on a typical competition course. The objective is to establish a rhythm over solid jumps in reliable consistent footing. Optimum times will be posted.
All proceeds benefit the Maryland International Equestrian Foundation. We will parade around the arena and maybe through the parking lot if we’re feeling adventurous! Prizes for best costumes and holiday spirit, best truck decorations, and whatever else catches our eye.

This year's beneficiary is the Maryland International Equestrian Foundation.

2021 Loch Moy Farm Greatest Holiday Spirit Award
Pixel (High Resolution) is a 2008 OTTB. He's Jockey Club registered as Formidable Image and raced 7 times with a grand total earnings of $2,120. He placed 3rd once but had no real desire or talent for racing, and usually finished at the back of the pack. A friend of a friend got him right off the track so he wouldn't go to auction or questionable places and mostly trail rode him until I purchased him in 2015. Since then we have played in local hunter & jumper shows and have been eventing at Beginner Novice. He is part leased to an adult amateur at our farm and last winter we used him to tow us around on a sled when we had enough snow, among all his other adventures.
Pixel will do almost anything for treats and most of all is willing to put up with my habit of dressing him up for the holidays- he was a very good sport about being the Peppermint Pony for the Donation Derby! I think he genuinely enjoys the attention & was paid well in carrots for all his efforts.
Intro and Starter jumps will be on the competition course as well!
To sign up, please TEXT only (no email requests).
Text 301-514-0111 with your preferred date and time, and the names of all riders. Then wait for your confirmation to come from us with instructions. Thank you!
The clinic is open to horses that are 3 and 4 years of age and are currently competing in the USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) series.
This Clinic is intended to be an introduction for young horses to practice free-jumping in a jump chute. The setup will be similar to the chute that will be used in USEAEast Coast Future Event Horse Championship being held at Loch Moy Farm September 16 - 17, 2022.
Something new this year. We will have 2 different options for the jump chute.
Option 1 - Jump Chute Familiarization - 15 minute slot ($40). Includes 2 in-hand through the jump chute as well as 2 jump rounds through the chute. For the horse that has done some jump chute clinics but just needs to be familiar with the jump chute that will be used for the FEH East Coast Championship.
Option 2 - Full Training - 30 minute slot ($80). Horse will practice trot, canter and free jumping through the chute. For the horse that has not done a jump chute clinic or it has been a while.
Free-jumping is a wonderful way to evaluate the potential of a young horse over fences. It is also an effective and positive way to introduce a young horse to jumping without the guidance or distraction of a rider. Not only is free-jumping good for young horses, it is also beneficial for mature horses to keep them quick on their feet and to remind them how to take care of themselves when needed.
Please upload a VALID coggins and LMF waiver on the UPLOAD COGGINS/SIGN WAIVER links on the home page of www.themarylandhorsetrials.com. This waiver will be valid for all of the competition year and coggins will be good until it expires.
