This past weekend the Newtown Bridle Lands Association (NBLA) held its annual Frost on the Pumpkin Hunter Pace across trails, fields, protected open space and private property. Thank you landowners for keeping this rural tradition alive. NBLA was founded in 1978 while the Fairfield County Hounds (FCH) still called Newtown home. Many FCH members founded NBLA, then called Newtown Bridle Lanes Association which more accurately reflected the original mission of the group; to protect riding trails in this fast-developing town.
