The Lord Stirling Stables known for their competitive horses offered an open to the public Fall Festival outing for October. The event consisted of a haunted hayride for large groups as well as pony rides for kids of all ages. There was no entry fee but guests had to purchase tickets for the rides and pumpkin painting. There was also optional food for purchase on-site, - chips, hotdogs, cotton candy, sodas and other treats for the low key afternoon.
All rides were managed by the always kind and welcoming staff. Entering the location, the parking is easy to navigate since the employees, directly you gently to the parking rows.
Lord Stirling Stables events are always a great way for families to introduce their kids to a stable life and experienced horses. The no-pressure reminders of upcoming pony rides and events are provided only if you inquire while waiting in line.
During the hayride, a headless horseman rode by quickly, ghostly ghouls were swinging from the trees, as footmen stood in the dark holding dim lanterns. The ride concluded with a large bonfire that had a witch dance with a devil in the moonlight. The festival was but only a few hours but provided a pleasant late afternoon outing.
