2019 HATS Barn Show and Open House

On Saturday, TBA, 2019, 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​ 2019 Session


Because of our unpredictable weather, rider's (and instructor's) poor tolerance to cold, and our lack of covered riding arena, we seldom have a structured winter riding session.  IF we do attempt to ride...
The Winter Session will be offered intermittently when the weather is cooperative.  Activities will be held on weekday afternoons. If you are interested in becoming a participant or volunteer, please contact us for details.
