The Maryland Horse Breeders Association (MHBA) is pleased to announce that it will be moving to a permanent home at 321 Main Street in historic Reisterstown. The MHBA has had offices in Baltimore County since its founding in 1929. This area is home to many horse-related activities, including the Maryland Hunt Cup, Maryland Grand National, the Green Spring Hunt Club and Shawan Downs.
The MHBA has been searching for a location to house the offices of the association, Maryland Million Ltd., Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred magazine and the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation. The stately building is 15 minutes from the famed Sagamore Farm and just over 20 minutes from Pimlico Race Course. It comprises approximately 7,000 square feet that will eventually feature a library and memorabilia area, in addition to meeting rooms.
“The acquisition of this historic building ends our organization’s search for a suitable home which has extended over the last decade. It will allow the MHBA to better serve our members and the general equine community, in line with our mission and in the best long-term fiscal interest of our organization,” says Michael Harrison, MHBA president. “I’d like to thank all those who’ve worked so diligently to achieve this momentous goal.”
The building is just minutes from Baltimore's beltway (I-695) and the Northwest Expressway (I-795), and has plenty of convenient, free parking for visitors and staff. The plan is for the staff to move in by July 1.
