FAIR WINDS OPENS THE DOORS FOR 4TH ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE

-- Ken Weingartner

CREAM RIDGE, NJ -- April 3, 2017 -- To celebrate the New Jersey’s “Month of the Horse,” Fair Winds Farm in Cream Ridge, New Jersey will open its doors to visitors on Sunday, June 25 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The fourth annual free open house will be held at the farm, 74 Red Valley Road in Cream Ridge, and will allow visitors to see the inner workings of this successful Standardbred breeding farm, where 2011 Hambletonian winner Broad Bahn was bred and raised.

Visitors will be able to tour Hogan Equine clinic, where top flight Standardbred and Thoroughbred athletes are treated by surgeon Dr. Patty Hogan, and get a tour of the farm via horse drawn wagon.

There will be demonstrations on the life of the Standardbred, featuring a young foal (baby horse) and his mother, along with half million-winning racehorse Mighty Young Joe and his trainer Stacy Chiodo. Other Standardbreds will show their talents off the track in under saddle disciplines, jumping, trail riding and more.

For those that just want a horse to pet, retired racehorses and goodwill ambassadors Independent Act (Indy) and his pal Osborne’s Shy Cam (Ozzy) will be on hand to say hello and pose for selfies. Farrier Tom Mulryne will demonstrate how to care for a horse’s feet and have free lucky horseshoes for visitors to take home.

Horse centric exhibitors will also be on hand, including Rutgers Equine Science Center, Open Space Pace, Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization, New Jersey Equine Advisory Board, Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey and Rutgers Cooperative Extension.

Other equine educational groups are expected to join and will be announced closer to the event. The Hearts and Horseshoes 4H Club will be back with their friendly rabbits.

The event will be held rain or shine. Refreshments will be available for purchase. There is ample parking available, but few paved surfaces, so visitors should wear sensible shoes and strollers may have a rough ride. Please leave dogs at home. For more information, call 732-780-3700 or email ellen.harvey@ustrotting.com.
