Welcome


We are proud to announce that the Open Space Pace and Festival of Horses will return for a third year! This year the event will be held on September 20, 2014. The event will again consist of a parade of horses, demonstrations by equine and agricultural non-profits, live harness racing, petting zoos, a concert and fireworks!




The Open Space Pace is dedicated to the preservation and protection of open space in New Jersey. We have donated over $26,000 to local equine and agricultural nonprofits in our first 2 years!

We are currently looking for sponsors, support, volunteers, and any contribution that you are willing to make. We believe that if we combine our efforts we can successfully help to rejuvenate NJ's harness racing industry while preserving open space.

If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a meeting please contact Brett Taft, Btaft@umh.com.
