Patricia Artimovich survived a life-threatening disease, thanks, she says, to the Johns Hopkins Avon Breast Cancer Center and to the healing power of horses. Next weekend, horses and their riders will help her raise funds for the hospital and its mission. "Why not take something as beautiful as a horse and organize a show dedicated to Hopkins?" she said. Artimovich is putting together the eighth annual PVDA Ride for Life, an event that has grown from modest beginnings at small arenas into two days of family entertainment at the Prince George's Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro.

Six-year-old Justice Phillips mounted a horse three times his height and calmly rode away to warm up for competition. He soon arrived at the show ring and raced the animal around three barrels as fast as he could. "The horses he rides are baby sitters," said his father, Woodrow Allen, who took up barrel racing three years ago. Justice's horses "take care of him. They are kid-proof." Allen, a tractor-trailer owner from Upper Marlboro, said he was drawn to the recreation "so we can have some fun together."

For the next several months this column will be almost exclusively devoted to covering equestrian competitions.There are many such types of events, and they all welcome spectators -- usually at little or no charge. Here is a brief guide to horse competitions for those ofyou thinking of attending some of these events.Besides racing on the flat -- such as horses do at Laurel or Pimlico -- horses also race over fences at point-to-point or steeplechasemeets.

Root Boy underwent successful surgery late Saturday night after breaking both sesamoids in his right foreleg during the running of the Maryland Million Classic. The horse is expected to survive the catastrophic injury."He is in critical but stable condition. The doctors said we will know more in the next five to 10 days," the horse's owner, Richie Blue of Brooklandville, said yesterday. "The surgery went really well, but the big fear is infection. There is no infection now, but if something sets in, that could complicate his recovery."

Grace Hartigan's "Another Hunt," one of the best works in her new show at C. Grimaldis Gallery, takes us on a little trip through the history of modern art while remaining thoroughly Hartigan and thoroughly contemporary.Its horses and riders remind us of Degas, but there's something about the principal rider's black hat and formal air that speaks of Manet. The spattering of yellow paint that seems to hover over the surface can, of course, recall Seurat's pointillism, but the yellow and the brilliant red riders' coats combine to suggest the dazzle of impressionist dabs of brightness.

Mother Nature is constantly encroaching in the world of trail riders.She provides scenery, shade and the trails but at the same time gives thorns, brackens and overgrowth that must be dealt with.On a recent glorious Saturday afternoon, Carolyn Garber of Taylorsville set off on foot armed with an anvil pruner to do battle with branches that had overgrown the bridle paths at Piney Run. The occasion was the first of the summer's planned trail-clearing expeditions of the county trail system.Garber was joined by three riders and their horses who were sent off to a "major sticker area" to clear away the growth.
