ASHLAND FARM UPDATE
Our Membership Program began, finally, in the spring of 2012. We sent out invitations to a small group of people who knew Ashland well and the response has been very gratifying. Not only do we have a wonderful group of members, but, by all accounts, people are having fun, schooling, trail riding and swimming their horses, and a community of riders is developing as people get in touch with each other to ride and school together.
We are planning to expand the membership slowly, in various ways, so if you are interested, please contact us to find out more.
ASHLAND FARM PLANS
Written in Early Spring 2011
For Ashland this is a time of re-evaluation and transition. Our dream and our intention has always been to preserve this land as a wildlife sanctuary and as a refuge from the stresses of everyday life that time in nature can so uniquely provide. This has never changed. Now, with the steady loss of open land available for riding and the scarcity of places to school cross country, we also want to make Ashland available as a place to ride in the open, to condition, and to school. We believe, however, that it is important to do all this in a way that preserves Ashland's sense of tranquility and protects it from the effects of careless use and overuse.
Our solution is to open the farm through a membership program. Through membership we hope to attract a community of riders for whom Ashland becomes a kind of home, a place to be loved and taken care of as well as to be used and enjoyed.
We deeply appreciate all the people who have called to offer their help when we start doing shows again.
