Group Visits

    Whatever the occasion, we would love to have your group visit us for an educational and FUN experience with horses! Group visits will be run similarly to our One Day Camps, though are tailor-made to fit what you're looking for! 

    Space is very limited; we reserve most Sundays specifically for groups, so if you'd like to schedule on another day, please schedule at least one month in advance. We do ask that we have a 4 student minimum. 

Please see our note regarding Covid

Important Information

All packages require a non-refundable deposit of $100 at least 14 days prior to the scheduled event. The full amount is due no less than 7 days prior to the scheduled event, along with the final number attending. We MAY be able to accommodate additions less than a week prior, however cannot refund if the final number goes down after it has been submitted. 



We can be flexible for what activities you'd like, but please keep in mind it may take extra time to plan and execute any changes made to one of our packages, and may take time to schedule your day since our Sundays are limited! Plan ahead with us and we will do our best to make your visit special and tailored to you and your group!

*Birthday Parties*
We do not host "birthday parties" specifically, as we only offer educational instruction with horses. However, we are happy to invite you to celebrate your special occasions with us while LEARNING a new skill and having fun doing it!! We have never had a disappointed rider after any of our private Birthday Events! 
During Covid, we cannot offer space at our facility for activities outside of our scheduled event(such as pizza, cake, presents, etc after riding), but can direct you to a lovely outdoor park complete with playground and picnic tables open to the public that is neighbor to our facility!
