It was wrong of the County to do this. To lose public Riding programs in favor of another stakeholder. I rode with BAEC and their horses were great, and it was affordable. People with $$ win every time... So pathetic

Petty bickering and personality conflicts. There are no meaningful financial issues expressed in this article. 5 days late? 20 days late? Good luck getting someone else to invest given the treatment of Byrum. I certainly wouldn't.

Why the heck would the County get rid of a business providing affordable services to the community? We have to know its politics...someone is bought off. Hmmm.
