    Sounds like a lot of fun! I'm envious.

    A few years back Old Sturbridge Village in MA.
    Opened the facility before the usual time and an Equestrian club got to ride through the old dirt streets and village with their horses...How cool would that be?

    It is about an hour away from me and I found out after the fact...
