The kids learn responsibility, how to care for and love a verity of animals. They learn how to ride, swim, and work together. Next year we will spend the summer at... More

Went here for the first time today with my sister, we had Chuck as our guide, who was an absolute pleasure to have. Great trail ride through a forest and got to walk the horses into the actual bay. It was a great view and lots of fun! Recommend bringing a camera and comfortable shoes like boots that you wouldn't... More

Horse Power is a working farm, but they go out of their way to make the animals accessible to the general public, they even host an occasional fair. Very friendly staff and some interesting animals.

All of a sudden the puddles were getting very deep and then I realized the horses were making their way out to the bay!! We had gone through this little passage trail and this giant expanse opened up and we could see... More
