George Washington raced thoroughbred horses in Annapolis in the 1750s, 100 years after the animals were first introduced to the area. A statue of Casimir Pulaski, a Polish soldier who assisted in the founding of the American cavalry during the Revolutionary War, stands in Patterson Park. The Preakness Stakes has been run since 1875. In the 1900s, lifeguards patrolled the shores of Ocean City on horseback, looking for shipwrecks and lost swimmers.

When health department inspectors visited a Southwest Baltimore horse stable last year, they found a place with dangerously exposed electrical outlets, stalls on the verge of collapse and trash strewn about the premises. They closed the site at 207 Bruce St., long a home base for arabbers, the street peddlers who have sold fresh food from the backs of horse-drawn wagons for generations. A year later, a new owner is poised to reopen the facility, the third such site in town and a historic one at more than 100 years old. But she had to make a thoroughly modern concession to bring it back to life.
