Group Experiences

Have a Horse Loving group? Bring your Scouts, Ladies group or Family out for an interactive horse experience!

Our Riding Experience include an authentic animal farm. Enjoy our Animal Barn and picnic area; relax in a little bit of country in the middle of the city.

Group Riding Experiences for everyone 7 yrs. and older!

Spend some time outdoors discovering the wonderful world of horses. We begin by fitting each rider with an approved safety helmet. You will receive a lesson in horsemanship and grooming. Then, we’re off to the arena where you’ll learn some riding basics like how to mount and hold the reins, steer, stop, and go. We’ll also teach you how to safely lead your horse.

After we dismount and return to the barn area, you can head over to picnic tables and Animal Barn! The picnic area and Animal Barn is available to your group for one hour. You’re welcome to bring lunch or refreshments, hang out and enjoy visiting with our farm animals!!
