Get on Your Horse and Ride

horseSeptember is one of the most amazing months of the year in New Jersey. It’s summer without the crowds. Cruising without the traffic. Dining without the wait.
And the weather couldn’t be more perfect, featuring warm days and cool nights, blue skies, sunny mornings and incredible sunsets. This month just begs you to get out there and see the great outdoors. If we slow down once in awhile, we really get to appreciate where we live. We forget about the commute to work, the EZ Pass lanes and the parking lot conundrums we face every time we arrive at a destination.
To that I say, “Heigh Ho Silver. Away!” I’m hanging with My Friend Flicka and Mister Ed. I’m back in the saddle again. In short, I’m going horseback riding.

There are stables available for every level of equine expertise. From beginners to true equestrians, New Jersey is famous for it’s breeding, training and riding centers.
