School Field Trips – FREE!
Field trips are offered to local special needs classrooms once a year free of charge. Field trips give an opportunity to learn about horses and farm life outside of the classroom. The duration is approximately 2 hours where the participants are able to tour the center and meet our horses. Hands on activities such as learning to groom and lead the horses will be safely observed by staff and trained volunteers. After the field trip, classrooms are welcomed to stay and enjoy their lunch in our picnic area.
Mounted and unmounted activities are available for Veterans struggling with PTSD or other injuries from their time in service. We have knowledgeable staff and community partners from the VA to oversee everyone’s needs and goals for a transformative experience given by our horses. Horses are intuitive animals that can improve mental and physical health.
