Carolina Horse Park Popularity Leads to Expansion
RELEASE: July 17, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Andrew Ellis
The Carolina Horse Park has been a busy place over the last few months. Dressage horses, show jumpers, eventers, and driving horses have all utilized the Raeford, NC, facility throughout the spring. The growing popularity and use of the Carolina Horse Park have driven some instrumental changes at the 250-acre facility.
The most influential of these changes is the construction of four new barns that has recently gotten underway. The funds for the new barns, which will be located directly behind the existing permanent stabling, were provided by a generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous. Without the support of members of the community like this, growth and evolution of the Carolina Horse Park would not be possible.
The new stabling means that capacity has doubled and that 192 horses can be stabled in state-of-the-art, well-ventilated barns to ensure horses competing at the park are comfortable and happy during competitions. It also will decrease the need for costly temporary stabling, and provide more room for spectator parking and vendors.
In another effort to better serve competitors and all users of the Carolina Horse Park, the staff has been restructured and the office has been moved from downtown Southern Pines to the Horse Park facility itself.
The staff now includes Andrew Ellis, Director of Operations; Dana Diemer, Director of Competitions; and Gwen Perkins, Executive Director.
Everyone is welcome to come out to the Park and check out all of the new changes. The full-time staff can be found in the office at the Horse Park during business hours.
