Equestrian Open Barn Day

Equestrian Open Barn Day

Maine’s Inaugural Equestrian Open Barn Day will be held on Sunday, May 27th.  Barns all over the State are participating! The list of barns participating has been published in print and online at The Horse’s Maine, Maine’s equestrian newspaper, see below.

Each participating equestrian barn has determined its own program for the day. Possibilities include demo lessons, riding demos, pony (and horse!) petting, refreshments, meeting the equine residents, and other original ideas. It is a day for families who would enjoy visiting with the horses to get out and meet them, or individuals who are interested in riding lessons, boarding or training to check out the different stables in their area. Local barns are looking forward to their visits.

Maine Equestrian Open Barn Day is for everyone. Don’t know a thing about horses? This is the day to find out!

The Bike Doctor

The Bike Doctor

Bike Doctor is an outreach program of the Community Bicycle Center in Biddeford.  Bike Doctor is a self-contained, highly visible cargo bicycle that will be used to provide free bike repair to kids and their parents who live in Biddeford but who may be a little too far from the CBC workshop to get there on their own.  To schedule Bike Doctor to drop by, email Andrew.

Once a week, Bike Monkey’s bike repair program graduates, youth completing mandated community service, and experienced CBC participants will accompany the CBC’s lead mechanic pedaling into Biddeford neighborhoods to provide free bike repair for kids who cannot reach the CBC’s fixed location on Hill Street. We'll have the opportunity to meet our neighbors and develop new connections within our community.
