Talbot Run Equestrian Center

Hi Everyone – It’s that time again – another lesson session has flown by and we are into the beautiful fall weather! With the holidays falling in the next session – I have had to do some “creative” planning in order to keep everyone on more or less the same calendar – which meant adding an extra week for some and having some have a slightly shorter session – The early bird payment is due paid in full by November 7th. If you are not continuing in your slot – need a new time and taking a break – please email or text me to let me know as we rearrange and accommodate everyone’s needs – you know us – we do our best to figure it out so all can ride!

Keep your eyes open for our Winter Mini Camp – Information will be out soon – Dates are – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday – December 28-30☺

If you have been on break or are interested in starting up – please contact Ann asap to schedule a lesson time that works for you! 301-648-7602

The total payment is different depending on what day you ride – a couple of people have paid already – no worries – you can take care of the difference when convenient or we can refund/credit your account if you paid too much. Amounts to pay are with the 10% discount.

Washington County, MD: Worst case of hoof neglect DEFHR has ever seen

On August 21, 2015, officials of the Humane Society of Washington County, Maryland, called DEFHR to assist with three horses suffering from emaciation and extreme hoof neglect. They had been locked in a stall for at least 15 years.

Piper – The chestnut mare’s hooves were over 3 1/2 feet long, and her legs were so badly damaged by years of neglect that she had to be humanely euthanized at the site. Her name was “Piper.”

The other two stallions had their excess hooves removed before being safely transported to Days End Farm Horse Rescue. Within a couple days of arrival, the vet took x-rays of “Quest’s” feet to help plan for his rehabilitation. Quest is often heard eagerly calling to future herd mates.

“Rio”had his first dental evaluation and trim.

Both horses are in critical condition and will require months–if not years–of rehabilitative care.

Your dollars will go a long way to helping Rio and Quest. PLEASE DONATE NOW!!‬

The Humane Society of Washington County officially filed 15 charges of animal cruelty against the owners on August 27th, 2015. The charges for the three severely neglected horses consisted of four misdemeanor charges and one felony count of intentionally causing torture for each of the equines. Probable Cause was found on all charges by the District Court Commissioner, and a Criminal Summons was issued. A court date has been set for October 28.

For regular updates on Quest and Rio’s rehab, go to our Facebook page.
