Construction of the new Citadel High School has muscled in on the Bengal Lancers, our fave equine urbanites. Is this the end of Halifax’s voyeuristic obsession with jumping show-horsies?

Remarks: The Lancers are indeed moving, but not far. Their new permanent home will be right across the street from their old site. Barker describes the move as win-win-win; win for horsie lovers—“You’ll be able to watch us ride sitting on the grass under a tree rather than in the dust through a board fence”—win for horsie haters—“They won’t be crossing the road anymore, so those rushing commuters will be happy”—and win for the horsies—“The new ring has a sprinkler system, tile draining, lights…it’s pretty sweet.”


Who's Responsible?: Jill Barker, Bengal Lancers Barn Manager, 425-2258.

Status: Fixed
