New Skidmore Horse Show site approved by planning board
Following its public hearing last night, the Town of Stillwater Planning Board approved a site plan and special use permit for a property at 28 Brickhouse Rd. The property was a gift to Skidmore College from the estate of the late Robert R. Rosenheim and is valued at $1 million. The 103-acre farm will be used as the new location for the Skidmore College Saratoga Classic Horse Show, beginning in June, 2018.
