I have two horses, a pony and a mini horse on our small farm, along with other animals. I enjoy riding and am able to help with basic riding skills. I began riding bareback as a young child and really enjoyed riding on the family farm. I have a beginner's pony that is very patient with new riders. My welsh/Arab cross that can take light adults easily. She is very kind natured and loves people. So come and enjoy this unique experience wiht us and meet some other animals.
