We are happy to report that the arenas at the Horse Park of New Jersey are getting a major facelift! It has been a long road to this point as the park receives no funding from the state, but the board was able to take major initiatives last year thanks to generous donations to get the renovations going. They are still accepting donations if you’d like to help. Click here for more information.

Tuesday News:

Cutting a few words from your vocabulary could be the key to managing the mental part of your riding. Words like “can’t” and “hate” are easily identified as negative, but don’t forget about the sneaky ones like “think,” “try,” “hope,” and “not.” Positive thoughts can have a lot of power! [Daniel Stewart’s Tip of the Month: Am – Am Not]

They’ve got a new cross country track and jumps, refurbished all weather footing, updated stabling, a brand new show jumping course and more.
