More than 50 Northeast Ohio schools and non-profits come to the farm with their students and clients to experience the healing power of our horses.
We collaborate with organizations to create meaningful programs for our students. Scroll through the programs below to find one that is best for your school or group.

Our School & Group Programs
Riding is one of our most popular programs for schools and groups. No experience is necessary and in fact, many of our students who come with groups have never seen a horse up close, or even imagined learning to ride one around the arena and on trail. Our large arena can be separated into two rings with up to four students in each group. We also have classroom space where we lead horse-related lessons tied to educational goals including math, English, geography or whatever the need may be. Most programs are six to eight weeks during the school year.
Learning to drive a carriage builds confidence and trust. Our students sit alongside an experienced driver as they learn to steer and control the speed of a horse-drawn carriage. We use both our indoor and outdoor arenas, and we also go out on trail in good weather. Most programs are six to eight weeks during the school year.
Our field trips give schools and organizations the opportunity to groom, walk and interact with our horses. We customize each program to fit the needs of the group. We can accommodate up to 20 participants. We schedule these year-round.
Working one-on-one with a horse helps build confidence and trust. While grooming, leading and participating in various exercises, students form a meaningful bond with a four-legged friend.
Our miniature horses travel to organizations that are unable to come to the farm. Sometimes this may be a physical therapy center, sometimes it is a retirement home or school, but no matter where they travel, they are sure to put smiles on the faces of everyone they meet.
Reading out loud can be intimidating. But sharing a book with a curious, non-judgmental furry pony, can be a lot of fun. We offer Horse Tales to help young readers improve their literacy skills. Children spend 15 minutes reading a favorite book out loud to one our therapy horses in the barn.
We are grateful for the partnerships with many schools, groups and non-profits throughout Northeast Ohio.
