Kids Program

The Kids Program we offer is a low cost experience for children who are interested in leaning about horses and greenspace. We meet every Sunday 2:30pm-4:30pm activities include feeding, grooming, learning about care and techniques with the horses. You might be mucking a stalls one day, picking hooves the next! The more you come the more you learn and the more you are able to be around and handle the horses with confidence. We only ask a donation of $20 a month (the cost of a bale of hay!) for your participation. Please remember to bring your monthly donation as it truly goes a long way in keeping our horses healthy by going to veterinary/farrier costs. Boots, long sleeves and jeans are required as it can get muddy or dusty. Please note Sundays are group participation and volunteering and no rides are given, if you are interested in learning to ride or want to sponsor a horse in order to gain access to them please visit our Donation or Sponsorship page. We look forward to seeing some friendly new faces down here at the ranch soon!
