An outstanding morning or afternoon trip that includes an up close animal encounter, horseback riding on a tail with a friendly guide, and clean shaded areas for picnicking.

Horse Power for Kids is a wonderful place for families. The staff is friendly, fun, safe, and knowledgeable. My 4 kids and I took a guided trail ride through different terrain including woods, wetlands, and a beach. Our guide Chuck was fantastic with all of my kids ranging from 7-14. He ensured that everyone had a great time! The trail... More

Hayride,train ride,animal petting area,snakes all the way to wolves! The play area was awesome for the under 8 year olds along with games.Horse... More

WE were looking for a place to ride horses and found several of them to have questionable practices regarding the animals. I stumbled upon this place it is all that the reviews say. First and foremost, it is a NONPROFIT place, so the prices are the best around ($20 per person for over a one hour trial ride, the other... More

I love this non-profit. They take very good care of their animals, everyone is always friendly and the activities they have around Halloween and Easter are perfect for kids and families of all ages. I even rented a pony and animals to come to my house for my daughter's party and it was FANTASTIC!
