We understand and appreciate that you might want to see the farm before making a decision. DO NOT 'just drop by'. You may be disappointed by being turned away.
While you may 'only take a minute' it simply doesn't work that way. Why?
- First is Safety. For you, your children, our animals and ourselves. The property is NOT open to the public. When we invite you for lessons or a functrion you are welcome, but at least one of our staff members must be on site.
- There may not be anyone there to show you around. And it is not safe to wander anyone's farm without permission.
- An instructor may be conducting a lesson and can't just stop in the middle and restart. The instructor's attention is to the rider, not the visitor and visitors can sometimes be distracting.
- 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 happy to give you a tour but for all of us to benefit from the visit it must be scheduled.
PLEASE call 712 355-8962 or 205 752-7691. Lori will schedule a time for you to visit and answer some of your questions. Let's do this safely and properly.
