What you'll do
There are three options for you to choose from: 1. HOBBY FARM FUN: Enjoy all the things there are to do on a hobby farm. Feed, pet and brush the horses. They LOVE apples, which are supplied as part of the experience. Meet Thumper and Piper, the Nigerian Dwarf Goats. They will also enjoy a treat or two. Weather permitting, ride the lawn tractor and/or enjoy S’Mores roasted over the fire. 2. HORSE CARE: Find out what it is like to care for a horse. Feed and brush the horses. Tidy the stalls and paddocks. Learn how Snowman and Elsa came to Horse Haven. No visit is complete without spending a little bit of time with Thumper and Piper, the tiny Nigerian Dwarf Goats! 3. DEFINE YOUR OWN: The experience is yours to define depending on your level of comfort. While Snowman and Elsa are gentle, some may not be as comfortable being close to such large animals as others are. We will start with an initial meeting and take it from there based on your comfort level. From just being near the loving and positive energy of the horses, giving them treats, brushing them, braiding their hair (I love to braid Snowman’s bangs so he looks like a unicorn). Some people enjoy cleaning the stalls while others bring a book or a yoga mat. This is NOT a horseback riding experience.
