Councilors Approve Plans For New Equestrian Center Submitted By Ian Stark
Councilors in the Scottish Borders "have approved in principle plans" for an equestrian center submitted by four-time Olympic Medalist Ian Stark, according to the BBC. He "wants to build" the new center at Greenhill Farm, south of Selkirk, Scotland. Planning officials "had recommended approval of the scheme," but with a number of conditions attached. Included in the plans "are a new indoor riding arena and an outdoor riding area, along with floodlights." There "would also be a cafe and equestrian equipment sales area" (BBC, 6/3).
