Manure / Stable Guidelines adopted by the Pepperell Board of Health

Thirteen years ago, PHOA was formed to counter the perceived threat of horse-keeping regulations proposed by the Board of Health. This year, regulations were mandated because of state requirements that towns over a certain population had to have some rules for the keeping of horses, ponies, and other “non-pet” animals. Our Animal Health Inspector, Robin Hebert, drew up some guidelines, got additional input from the PHOA Board, and they were passed by the Board of Health in April.  

The guidelines were presented at the PHOA meeting on April 25.   Robin was able to propose reasonable, common-sense guidelines that will not unduly burden the horse- owning community in Pepperell. The guidelines are published on our web site.  Click on the link "Pepperell Stable Guidelin" in the menu above, or here.

2016 Annual PHOA/NEHT Fall Frolic Trail Ride

Date:         Sunday, October 23, 2016

Place:        Nissitissit Meadows on Prescott Street  

This is Pepperell conservation land.  Be sure to clean up your trailer area afterwards and leave the Meadows sparkling!.   

We can't do it without volunteers to check and clear trails, set up, tear down, provide food, help with registration and parking and a hundred other things that go into running a trail ride event.  If you are interested in helping out with this year's ride, please check out the Trail Ride Volunteer's page on our web site.

As planning gets underway, we will be updating the Trail Ride Information page and the Events page.  Watch this space!
