MANE EVENT - Purpose, Programs and People


Mane Event is a Maryland-based, not-for-profit, equestrian-oriented education, care, and recreation program that serves individuals, community-based agricultural clubs such as 4-H, local horse and pony clubs, and riders of all ages, abilities, and skill levels.  As a program with a unique focus on special needs and physical therapy,  Mane Event assures that people who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience equestrian recreation are able to do so.

  • Offer a broad range of equestrian-based recreational and educational programs from beginner to competition level to serve the community.
  • Increase the visibility of and accessibility to equine-based activities in Anne Arundel County.

  • Build a program accessible and complimentary to, other existing Anne Arundel-based programs and facilities in the immediate area especially Lindale Middle School, Andover Park and Andover Recreation Center and the BWI Trail.
