Bridgehampton seems disenchanted with all things equestrian. First the polo grounds closed, and now they are saying, “Whoa!” to South­­­ampton horse owners.

Campbell Stables at 6 West Pond Drive is hoping to amend a site plan to include additional structures on their farm. But their neighbors say the plan stinks, and that they are becoming a “mega-ranch.”

“I do not want it located anywhere near our property for several reasons,” Fred Brettschneider, who lives at 143 Newlight Lane, directly to the west of the stables said, noting the smell, increased traffic, and his daughter’s allergies.

“It’s like Saratoga out in my backyard,” Peter Zamiska, who lives to the east of the stables on Kellis Pond Lane, said. He’s gone as far as to distributes flyers in opposition of the expansion. [EHS]
