2018 HATS Barn Show and Open House

On Saturday, July 28, 2018, we will be hosting our annual barn show and open house from 9:00-12:00.  This event is a great time for participants to showcase their accomplishments for friends and family while providing demonstrations for donors and the public. We typically have a great silent auction and sell new used tack, barn items, and show clothes that we aren't currently using in the program.  Its a perfect time to come see what we are all about!

Winter​ 2018 Session


Because of our unpredictable weather, rider (and instructor) poor tolerance to cold, and our lack of covered riding area, we seldom have a structured winter riding session.  IF we do...
The Winter Session will begin early December  and run through February, as long as the weather is cooperative.   Make ups will be held the following week.  Activities will be held on weekday afternoons, weather permitting. If you are interested in becoming a participant or volunteer, please contact for details.
