Not everybody can call their backyard a horse stable. Bill Ashpaugh has been running Cherry Wood Stables since 1983.

For almost four decades, Ashpaugh and his workers have made caring for their horses their top priority. A visit to the massive dusty barn and the growing green pastures of Cherry Wood will seem like a peaceful break from the traditional suburban life we’ve all become accustomed to.

Last fall, after a student reported an instance of racial slurs and threats scribbled onto a bathroom stall at NHS, many students noticed a tension in the Noblesville community around the issue of race. At a school where it’s common to see only one or two students of color in a classroom, this can be a touchy subject for some.
