The Maryland Equine Market
Based on the statistics compiled in the most recent studies performed by the American Horse Council and the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension Service, the Maryland horse industry has a significant economic impact:
- The Maryland horse industry produces goods and services valued over $600 million per year, and the national industry has a $1.5 billion impact on the Maryland economy over the course of a year.
- The number of horses in Maryland is approximately 82,000.
- The number of horse enthusiasts is estimated at around 114,000.
- The average maintenance cost per horse is around $3,000 at private stables and $3,250 at public stables, with an overall expenditure of approximately $235 million for the State of Maryland.
- Over 60% of the horses owned in Maryland are involved in showing or recreation (despite the dominance of horse racing in the media and the general public’s view of this state’s role with horses).
- Almost 50% of the public stables intend to expand their stables and services, and expect an increase in the demand for those services.
- This is a firmly established market - most survey respondents had been involved with horses for, on average, 22 years, with an average beginning age of 16.
