A ride on Star was the main attraction for many children at the Share The Road event.

The Granby Horse Council spread the word on June 9 about the importance of road safety for everyone, with an emphasis on horseback riding. The Share The Road event at the Salmon Brook Park riding arena was popular for Granby residents and visitors from surrounding communities, mostly families with young children. The kids especially enjoyed petting the many horses that were ridden to the arena; riding their own stick ponies through an obstacle course and taking a ride on Star, a wonderfully patient pony from the Strain Family Horse Farm LLC.

GHC’s Joan Davis demonstrated the correct ways to signal a stop, turn or request to slow down and soon everyone was practicing with her. Joan’s horse, Cherokee, amazed the crowd with his tricks and agility. For more information about the GHC, please visit
