Open Barn is Back!


It’s been a busy summer, but at last we have time to offer Open Barn again.  Come out to Red Colt this Sunday, 28 September and take advantage of the horsey version of Open Floor.  Groom a horse, do some sworplay, bring a bow and shoot the haystack, or get a practice ride in between 1pm and 4pm.  Open Barn is free to attend, and $10 if you want to ride a school horse.

We’ll also be having a work party beginning around noon to clean out stalls and winterize the barn before it’s time to start bringing the horses in at night.   Lend us a hand for an hour or two and you can ride a school horse for free.  Plus we provide refreshments!Jack 1
