Adults will enjoy exploring the offerings at the annual Silent Auction, which benefits the Lord Stirling School Horse Retirement Fund, another FLSS initiative. Themed gift baskets, specialty items, and gift certificates for local businesses will vie for bidders’ attention. The FLSS gift shop will offer unique items for purchase. The riding apparel sale is also very popular.
In conjunction with the festivities, guests are invited to enjoy the Winter Holiday Horse Shows that provide Lord Stirling students the opportunity to showcase the horsemanship skills they have learned in class. Horse shows begin at 9:00 AM each day. The Adult Drill Team is featured on Saturday and the Junior Drill Team performs on Sunday, both during the lunch break.
Spectators may enjoy the shows from the climate controlled viewing area. Admission and parking are free.
Friends of Lord Stirling Stable is a 501(c) (3) organization of youth and adult volunteers working with the Somerset County Park Commission to support the activities of Lord Stirling Stable through contributions of ideas, time, and revenue.
