People who board horses at Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center will be paying more under a rate increase approved this week by the City Council. Despite some objections, the council allowed Mary Harris, who leases the facility from the city, to raise stall rents by as much as $20 a month.

It requires no prior knowledge of riding or horses; it doesn't even require a great deal of balance or nerve.

Farris argues in legal papers filed this week that the city abused its power by approving development of three luxury homes on a nine-acre site that had been set aside for a private equestrian center.
