BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable, located at 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, is offering an Introductory English-style horseback ride on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 1:00 P.M. Registration begins Tuesday, September 8, 2015 at the Stable office and will continue through Thursday, September 17, 2015, as space permits.

Participants will enjoy a brief group lesson with one of Lord Stirling Stable’s riding instructors followed by a one-hour guided trail ride through Lord Stirling Park.

The Introductory Ride offers 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, and may be held in the indoor ring in the case of inclement weather.
