Horseback Riding Field Trips
We offer field trips to day care facilities, schools, and other organizations. Field Trips include the following:
- Basic riding instruction before the ride
- A 30-minute guided trail ride
- Access to the picnic area and playground
- Exposure to lots of other farm animals such as ducks, chickens, bunnies, turkeys, pheasants, peacocks, guineas, dogs, cats, and a miniature horse.
Field Trip Cost
The cost is $17/person for children and adults regardless of age. Since all our rides are guided, we don't require the care givers to ride, but we recognize that many organizations require their staff to supervise the children in their care at all times. We're fine with that, and we expect for you to be responsible for supervising the children in your care when they aren't riding.
When Are Field Trips Available?
Field trips are available on weekdays and usually last four to five hours. Most field trips are scheduled from 10am - 2pm to allow you time to get to our farm in the morning and get back to your location before time for the parents to pick up their children in the afternoon, but the schedule is flexible. We can accommodate groups of up to 60 children. We divide them up into groups to ensure a safe ride. Helmets are provided.
What Ages Can Participate?
Ages 5 and up can participate in our field trips. Children can ride on their own when they are 6 years old and older. Younger children will be assisted by our experienced guides.
Liability Release Forms
If the children's parents have signed a liability release form with your organization, and your organization carries liability insurance, you can sign a liability release form when you arrive at the farm for the children you bring to ride, or you can have each of the children's parents sign a Horseback Riding Liability Release form for their child and bring the signed release forms with you on the day of the field trip.
