Lord Stirling Stable Celebrates Multiple Anniversaries

Posted by Rich Reitman 

Somerset County Park Commission Lord Stirling Stable and the Friends of Lord Stirling Stable celebrated anniversaries this past weekend with the Stable commemorating its 45th year and the Friends honoring their 30 years of service to the Stable.

A beautiful night at the Stable attracted dozens of fans and supporters of Lord Stirling Stable for hayrides, hot dogs, hamburgers, soft drinks, and cakes commemorating both anniversaries.

Lord Stirling Stable is located within Lord Stirling Park in the Basking Ridge section of Bernards Township, and is nestled within 450 acres of the western portion of the Great Swamp Basin of the Passaic River. The Stable features a large indoor ring, three outdoor rings, daily Lead Line pony rides, and 18 miles of beautiful trails.

The Friends of Lord Stirling Stable, the very active volunteer organization provides support and financial assistance for many programs at the Stable including driving events, hunter paces, weekly dog walks, Dog Days, Salute to Horsepower Car & Motorcycle Show, Mother’s and Father’s Day Trail Rides, Nature Rides, Dressage Shows, and various clinics.

I was among the first group of kids to take riding lessons at Lord Stirling Park, circa 1969. I was a student at St James, and would walk down to the stable for my weekly lesson. $40 for 10 lessons; had to wear jodphurs and riding boots or "a tie shoe with a definite heel". Earned the privilege to ride for free in the winter. Great memories!
