The barn I board at used to hang little stockings on each stall door and put treats in each one, until a horse got out of his stall and ate all the peppermints in the stockings(including the wrappers)! Now they just have Chritmas lights outside and they have a Christmas tree in the office :)

We have a Christmas party every year at this fancy resteraunt but I don't think im going to be invited this year because were leaving before christmas

the ASB barn I worked at always had a tree decorating party with appetizers and coffee.

the RBATF (really big arab training facility) I worked at always had a Christmas show they put on, and a sleepover for the kids our 5 stall barn, we play christmas music and exchange gifts, but that's it!

My barn LOVES having partys. If it's a holiday, they are decorating and planning something fun. I love it.

We are having a Holiday Show/Party. They are going to have fun games for the kids, and jumper classes, for the more competitive ones. :) Along with games for the non-horsey people. Alot of people are putting a drill team routine together. We have a terditional holiday dinner and just enjoy being together.

They decorate all around the barn with garland, and hang stockings up in the front of our fencing. They arn't done so i have no idea whats coming next!

I'll take some pictures. :)

Oh geeze....tonight we spent quite a while doing more decorating. There are lights, and trees, and stockings. And they play Christmas music over the speaker in one of the stables.

There will be a big christmas party with everyone from the barn invited.

I've just moved over to my friends place and I've hung a stocking on his stall door but I doubt we're going to have a party since it would just be the two of us (then her hubby and my soon to be hubby).

Yes! My barn we hang stockings all over the stall doors, & the BO puts up lights (her house is nearby)- it looks so pretty!

Ride more, worry less.

I've never been at a barn that does anything nice or fun during the holidays. I honestly don't think I've been somewhere that even verbally says "Happy Holidays" to me?! Well...Bah-humbug.
