"It took about three days for it to sink it," said Dr. Helen Tuel, director of the Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center of Glenwood. "I didn't realize how much work 24 young people could do in one day."Dr. Tuel referred to the team of volunteers from the National Civilian Community Corps that will help the center for the next three years, doing "a little bit of everything."The center is building new facilities, including a new indoor riding arena, a pre-engineered steel building that arrived last week.

On a sunny summer day, 14-year-old Julianna Lupacchino is riding a horse on a Fallston farm. At first glance, the scene seems like nothing special - Harford County is horse country, after all - but at Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding, the occasion is very special indeed; Julianna more frequently uses a wheelchair. Julianna is one of 23 therapeutic riding clients at Chesapeake, where trained staff, volunteers and medical professionals use horses to facilitate physical and mental therapy.

Approximately 50 horses will be on display for auction at the Carroll County Agriculture Center in Westminster on Sunday, Feb. 26. One is blue, another has stripes and another has balloons. Another has the scene of a fox hunt painted on its side. Yet another comes with two tickets to a Broadway show. These horses don't eat much and can easily fit into your car - they aren't real, but rather a mix of ceramic statues, wooden models and others - all created for the "Horses of Many Colors for a Cause Retreat Round-Up," a fundraiser hosted by the Horse of Course 4-H Club, and benefiting The Retreat at Beckleysville.

AMANDA DECKER of Dayton and her friends love the Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center (TRRC) in Glenwood. When they saw an opportunity to help the center, they were eager to contribute. On Nov. 4, Oreo, a well-loved and important Norwegian fjord horse, died. That left the center with one Norwegian fjord, and a second was needed to meet the needs of the center's therapeutic riders. "We need a bombproof pony," said Amanda's mother, Laura Decker, and this type of horse fits that description.

Residents who want to see a farm on the Broadneck Peninsula used only for a public equestrian center suffered a setback yesterday when state lawmakers rejected a bill that supported their cause. Members of the House Commerce and Government Matters Committee voted down legislation co-sponsored by Republican Dels. James E. Rzepkowski of Glen Burnie and Robert C. Baldwin of Crownsville late Wednesday. The vote was unanimous, with one member absent. "It was a bold piece of legislation, but I think what is important is that the residents of the Broadneck community, who felt underrepresented, had an opportunity to bring this travesty to the light of day," Rzepkowski said.

BUTTE, N.D. - Everyone here knew this was coming. The harbingers have appeared year after year. Butte had seven churches, then six, then five, four, three, now two. There used to be two banks, now one, which stays open just half a day. The Laundromat requires just one washer and one dryer these days. Saturday, with the soil too wet to till and two layers of clouds sliding in different directions above the plains, a crowd larger than the entire population of the town, which is 125 or so, gathered at Butte Public School.

WITH LOSSES of $1.5 million since 1986 -- more than $350,000 in the last three budget years alone -- the Columbia Horse Center hangs on by threads of tradition and remarkable concern for a tiny sliver of Columbia residents.No business could tolerate these losses. Of course, the horse center, supported by Columbia property assessments, isn't really a business. Some slack is afforded, and should be, to facilities and programs that serve the community. The problem here is that the community as a whole shows little interest in horses.

Sunlight streams through the windows of the immaculate barns at the Andover Equestrian Center, lighting up the freshly painted walls, new flooring and sliding stall doors. But the stalls stand empty. It's close to two years since the horses stabled at the Linthicum facility were moved out so the county could renovate the riding complex and look for a new manager. With construction work nearly complete, county officials say they are about to begin searching for a center operator and hope to fill the job by the end of the year.
