Friends of Lord Stirling Stable Winter Holiday Festival

The Friends of Lord Stirling Stable (FLSS) will present their 19th Annual Holiday Festival on Saturday and Sunday, December 2 & 3, 2017 from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

The Festival will take place at the Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable, 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge, NJ.

Children will enjoy hayrides through the woods to see Santa at his house (weather permitting). Santa’s Workshop will be open for games, craft projects, food, and more. Pony rides will be available at various times throughout the Festival. 

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.

DelVecchio and Suriano Win, but Rutgers Falls to Iowa 23-15

PISCATAWAY -- Wrestling is a sport where the athletes are tough, nasty, and egotistic in a way. They also say what’s on their minds no matter what.

Coming into Friday night’s dual meet between No. 7 Iowa and No. 16 Rutgers, there was a lack of respect from the Iowa side toward Rutgers. And after the Scarlet Knights won the first three matches of the night before a Rutgers Athletic ...

No seriously, this article in the Times claims that a scientific study conducted at Vanderbilt University recently discovered that dogs have twice as many neurons as cats in the analytic part of their brains.

Yeah, but they only use a ...
