New Jersey has an abundance of picturesque horse farms with rolling green pastures and well-managed grounds. Three years ago, a joint project between the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers University (NJAES), the Rutgers Equine Science Center, and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture (NJDA) called the New Jersey Equine Environmental Stewardship Program sought to recognize these farms with an award that can be displayed by the roadside. The award is called the Gold Medal Horse Farm award… Lord Stirling Stable is home to more than 50 species of birds, including bobolinks and bald eagles, which nest along the nearby Passaic River. Numerous wildlife species call the stable and pastures home: including raccoons, opossums, skunks, groundhogs, fox, and deer… The Equine Science Center is a unit of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Its mission is Better Horse Care through Research and Education in order to advance the well-being and performance of horses and the equine industry.
