In addition to the Vaulting Program, work was completed to expand the parking and finish the snackshop. Twenty-four temporary indoor box stalls were erected over the winter to enable better care of the horses and reduced mud build-up in the winter pasture. Plans are being made to add draft horse stalls to the back of the indoor arena, build restrooms, expand the facility for a stock farm program, add false fronts on the buildings and landscape around Crum Pond. The new vaulting and riding lesson programs bring hundreds of guests and parents to the stables each week year-around. The facility just isn't conducive to that much traffic. A lack of bathrooms is a real inconvenience, particularly when other retreat guests are using nearby facilities. As the program develops, our goal is to bring a Western Town motif tying the Stables and Bayview into a themed environment.
