Visiting the farm


We are happy to give you a tour of our farm before you make a decision to volunteer, donate, or participate in any of our programs.


For all of us to benefit, please schedule it with us ahead of time.


There are a few reasons why we ask that you schedule a visit ahead of time:

  1. Safety. For you, your children, our animals and ourselves. Our property is not open to the public. When we invite you for lessons or a function, you are welcome here- but least one of our staff members must be on site.

  2. We may not be there. There may not be anyone there to show you around. It is not safe to wander around anyone's farm without permission.

  3. Lessons. An instructor may be conducting a lesson and can't stop in the middle and restart. In these instances, the instructor's attention is to the rider. Visitors can sometimes be distracting during sessions.

  4. Open gate. An open gate is often an invitation and a tease to any of the animals in the yard looking for an open gate through which they can go walk-a-bout or for outside animals to walk on in.


We are excited to have you! Please reach out, and Lori will schedule a time for you to visit and will answer your questions.

Please fill out this contact form below to reach out about any programs, to get involved, to support us, or to ask any questions you have for us.


We can't wait to hear from you!
