Saddle Up’s Fun on the Farm program operates during the summer months only (June & July). Participants are scheduled for a week at a time and come out to the farm from 9am-12pm Monday through Friday of that week. There are two scheduled riding lessons during the Fun on the Farm week. We offer three Fun on the Farm weeks each summer; the first two weeks are for an individual child or youth with a disability and the third week is for the individual child or youth with disabilities and one sibling (6-18 years old).
Progress & Goals
Fun on the Farm will use RIDES® for assessment of mounting/unmounted horsemanship skills. For more information on RIDES®, visit our RIDES® informational page. Goals will include mounted and unmounted horsemanship skills, social interaction, and activity participation. These are based on the participant’s abilities as well as parent/guardian input.
Participants must be between the age of 6 and 19 years old and have a documented disability. Participants need to be able to willingly interact with the horses and participate in a group setting.
Saddle Up!’s Fun on the Farm costs $350 for the individual week and $550 for the sibling week. A $25 non-refundable registration fee will be charged each summer. The cost of each week can be paid up front or split into two payments. We do not want the cost of programs to deter your child from participating, so if you would like more information on our Financial Aid program, please let us know.
