For ages 8-17 — Learn about the friendly horses and goats, and participate in their daily care. Wear sturdy work clothes and tough shoes because this is a “hand-on” experience. You’ll put a halter on a horse, learn to lead horses safely, brush them, clean their feet and clean their stalls. Everyone will have a chance to sit on a horse (helmets are required and provided, keep hairstyles simple for easy fit). Eat a good breakfast, bring water bottle and wear layers. Must pre-register. For more information contact the Coordinator at 707-639-1325. Instructor: Jane Mitchell
