Equine & Farm Animal Program

The Equine & Farm Animal Program

Our goal for the Farm Animal Program here at Refreshing Mountain is to step away from the traditional “petting zoo” idea and to instead, introduce these critters in a hands-on, interactive opportunity for everyone. Educating kids and adults alike about general animal handling and proper interaction is what we love to do!

This program is designed to give children an opportunity to interact with farm animals. Participants will:

  • learn general safety guidelines for interacting with large animals
  • have a chance to pet, groom, and feed the animals

Small Groups 1-4 Participants:

The Horse Ride and Farm Animal Experience  is a 30-45 minute session, ideal for ages 5-15 years old. Riding helmets are provided. This experience can be booked online or by calling our office- tour times available online.
(The max weight is 200 lbs, closed-toe shoes required, and riders must be able to mount a horse unassisted from a 2-step mounting block. At least 1 adult must be present with each group.)

Large Groups 5+ Participants:

We have modified the small group package to accommodate large groups by splitting up the experience into two separate activities, the Farm Animal Experience and our Horse Rides. We will plan a few weeks in advance with you and your group to schedule one or both of these activities.

All of our Farm Animal activities strive to provide an engaging and enjoyable opportunity every person involved.
