SPRING FESTIVAL IS ALMOST HERE!
MAY 3, 2014 • 9AM-4PM!!

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:

  • Please have your child wear his/her tee shirt the day of the festival. We want our riders to stand out!!
  • We will be using the ENNIS ROAD entrance on festival day. The main entrance to the farm will be closed. Please follow signs and our parking volunteers will assist you.
  • Riders need to check in 30 minutes before their ride time.
  • Bring your camera, sunscreen and chair or blanket.
  • OBEY ALL SIGNS-especially those for non-authorized areas. Some farm areas are off limits during the festival for safety reasons.
  • Click HERE for a list of all the rider times!

Safety reminders from our horses. These things scare us, so please remember:

  • No Pets! Leave your furry friends at home. Pets are NOT allowed on the grounds-even in your vehicle.
  • No Umbrellas! Prepare for weather changes by bringing rain gear.
  • No running children! Children must be supervised at all times. It’s important that they remain in authorized areas only and are carefully watched. Running, screaming and loud noises are all frightening to us!

Things to do at Spring Festival?!
