Launched in 2018, the Mini Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program is a partnership with the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation (MHIF) and University of Maryland Extension 4-H Horse program to allow 4-H youth to learn about and experience the Thoroughbred industry. A three-part series run throughout the beginning of the year for 4-H youth ages 14 and older, the Mini MTCP's sessions cover topics such as reproduction, training, and sales, while exposing youth to various organizations and individuals within Maryland's Thoroughbred Industry. Sessions are held at various locations around the state.
