Fun on the Farm

Program Structure

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 website at Goals will include mounted and unmounted horsemanship skills, social interaction, and activity participation and 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 $500 for the sibling week. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required with registration for each week selected. The deposit will be applied towards the program fee if your child attends the summer program selected. You are welcome to pay the full fee in advance. If you only submit the deposit the remaining balance is due the first day your child attends Fun on the Farm.
