Equestrian Open Barn Day

Equestrian Open Barn Day

Maine’s Inaugural Equestrian Open Barn Day will be held on Sunday, May 27th.  Barns all over the State are participating! The list of barns participating has been published in print and online at The Horse’s Maine, Maine’s equestrian newspaper, see below.

Each participating equestrian barn has determined its own program for the day. Possibilities include demo lessons, riding demos, pony (and horse!) petting, refreshments, meeting the equine residents, and other original ideas. It is a day for families who would enjoy visiting with the horses to get out and meet them, or individuals who are interested in riding lessons, boarding or training to check out the different stables in their area. Local barns are looking forward to their visits.

Maine Equestrian Open Barn Day is for everyone. Don’t know a thing about horses? This is the day to find out!

In 2011, Maine joined 40 other states in allowing public charter school options for families of all income levels.  On May 1, 2012, the Maine Charter School Commission issued its first application package for potential founders of these new public education options, which are free to parents and open to all children without admissions tests.

          The Maine Association for Charter Schools (MACS) will celebrate the great work accomplished by public charter schools across the country, where over 5,000 public chartered schools are serving 1.8 million students.
