Stable Spotlight: Grand Central Stables

I am going to continue on with another drool-worth facility. 300 acre Grand Central Show Stables in Brewster, NY, home to some of the finest show ponies in the country.The main barn has 20 stalls and includes poured-rubber floors, two foaling stalls with cameras and heat lamps. In the barn, special features include wash stalls with radiant heat in the floors and grooming stalls that have horizontal lights in the walls for the blacksmith and when clipping. There is an elaborate fire prevention “deluge” system that, in the event of a fire, will dump 900 gallons of water per minute onto the fire.The barn attaches to a large indoor arena, which features radiant heaters that can warm the indoor to 45 degrees, and a luxurious viewing lounge. The laminated timber arch spans of the indoor arena rise 55 feet into the air giving the 180 x 120 foot arena the feel of a modern cathedral.For the ponies that live outside, there are eight large run-in sheds with a stall in each.
