Shenandoah Riding Center

The Galena Territory Association (GTA), which owns the Shenandoah Riding Center, released a request for proposals (RFP) for operating the Shenandoah Riding Center, located in The Galena Territory. Free Range Chix, current operators of the riding center, has chosen to pursue other opportunities, and has submitted notice of cancellation to The Galena Trading Corporation, a subsidiary of the GTA. The contract will cancel in August 2018. The RFP is the first step in a process to determine the future of the riding center, the only GTA amenity open to the public. GTA General Manager Joe Mattingley said the riding center has a bright future. The GTA will consider all options to help determine usage of and future opportunities for the riding center.
