What has been completed for Masterson Station Park equestrian activities?
- The Indoor Arena, which has been plagued by poor footing, a leaky roof and several families of raccoons, is now a pleasant indoor venue for riding. Removal of the old ceiling brought in more light and created a more open atmosphere. The old deteriorating kickboards were removed and replaced. The old footing was replaced with river sand and mixed with sodium sulfate to aid in dust control
- The Judges box at the hunter/jumper ring has been completely renovated and is no longer the dangerous, decaying eyesore that it had become.
- Two new dressage pads completed.
- A dedicated gravel drive to the Dressage complex has been completed. This will create easier access to the complex as well as reduce driving on the grass field.
- The stone pillar entranceway off Spurr Road is now completed. This provides a beautiful entrance that will characterize the open and equestrian use of the park.
- MET received the donation of a TR-3 surface conditioner and a John Deere tractor to pull it with and now are able to maintain the footing in the various arenas and rings on a regular basis and on an as-needed basis prior to competitions.
- Much of the horse plank fencing has been replaced and repaired. Parks and Recreation personnel have done a terrific job with this project as well as the cleaning up of old branches and tress.
In the meantime, for further information contact MET or contact any of our members.
