Another Riding Stable in Jeopardy, File Under Development

By Eliza

This story in the Washington Post about Woodlawn Stables hit me today, because I am so aware of how hard it is to find space to ride as development turns the outskirts of cities into mega-suburbs.  This is not the barn I rode at when I was young--this one is--but I know it well, and it's sad to think of such an entrenched part of local life being ruined.  If you have ever watched a beloved boarding or lesson barn close, you know this story well.  It's not easy being a horse person these days.
