The 60-stall Main Barn on Ryerss Farm property is over 30 years old and was showing its age. We desperately needed to replace the wooden floor in the second floor barn loft, which covers the entire stall area below. This floor had become very weak and rotted due to leaks in the old roof, and there was a chance that it would break through if weight was put on it, causing injury to both people and horses!
Through fundraising efforts of our many volunteers, as well as a wonderful grant from Brennan Equine Welfare Fund, we were able to complete this project by installing a beautiful new floor in the second floor barn loft. Now the main floor of the barn will be safer, warmer and drier, benefiting horses, volunteers, staff and visitors.
