BASKING RIDGE, N.J. — Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable, located at 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, is offering a special Fall Family & Friends Introductory English-style horseback ride on Black Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 at 10 a.m. Registration is in progress at the Stable office until Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018. Space is limited.

A Lord Stirling Stable instructor will lead a brief group lesson followed by a one-hour guided trail ride through Lord Stirling Park. The ride provides an opportunity for novices who are considering riding lessons to sample a trail ride on horseback and see if they enjoy the experience. It is also a great “refresher” for those who have not ridden in a long time. The ride will take place rain or shine. Heavy downpour or hazardous weather conditions may result in cancellation.

Youth and adults who weigh less than 200 lbs. and are at least 9 years of age are eligible to participate.  Riders between 9 and 18 years old must be registered by a parent or legal guardian. Participants 9-11 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  A certified equestrian helmet and shoes or boots with hard, smooth soles and a definite heel are required and may be borrowed from the Stable for the ride.
