BARN BUDDIES

For Children Ages 4-6 to Learn About Horses
The Equestrian Center at Beverly Farm offers a unique opportunity with our Barn Buddies program for children ages 4-6 to experience horses for the first time over the course of four Saturday mornings. We begin with learning about safety around horses and progress to catching and leading our horses/ponies. We then move onto proper grooming and tacking up, followed up by mounting and riding. We finish with treats and turnout.
