Dorie Trapp started riding horses when she was 5 years old. Her father used to let her ride from the Andover/Linthicum area all the way to Patapsco Valley State Park, on the other side of the Baltimore Washington Parkway.Today, that ride can only be done on weekends; all the cars on the roads makes it too dangerous for horses. And that has created a problem for the Andover Equestrian Center, which is running out of space and trails for people to use."Our land keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller and now it's just ridiculous," said Trapp, who manages the horse riding park for Anne Arundel County.
