All of our programs include time with the horses. This time may include learning how to groom, feed, lead, and ride the horses. Safety around horses is very important and is covered at the beginning of each of our programs. Other activities include learning horse anatomy, constructing obstacle courses, decorating the horses for nursing home parades, and observing herd behavior. Due to time constraints, not all programs include all of the activities listed above.
