We are deep into R&R at Strides- and we don’t mean rest and relaxation! We mean repair and renovation. Also- rinse and repeat! We have started cleaning up the facility and bringing in vendors to do repairs needed.
Our amazing team of volunteers has spent hours scrubbing, washing, painting, mowing, and sweeping in an effort to get the barn ready for its new inhabitants! We have made great progress and the place is looking amazing! We have acquired stalls to add to the barn for the Strides horses, cleaned out the barn aisles, repaired and repainted the arena fence, cleaned and repainted the existing stalls, and mowed the grounds. Fencing for paddocks is underway so our horses can spend their days outside. Demolition of the house above the stalls is almost complete, giving the stalls and arena a bright, open feel.
Upcoming projects include repairing the roof so it doesn’t leak, replacing insulation in the building, asphalting the driveway and parking areas, and getting office and gym buildings put into place.
We cannot thank the people who have helped us enough. So many people put time, donations, equipment, and sweat into this project already and we couldn’t do it without them. We believe in this project and the impact it can have, and we are so honored that other people do too. If you would like to volunteer or donate, always feel free to reach out to us on the contact page! All are always welcome as we work towards getting this amazing facility ready!
