Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can we bring our own bicycle helmet for riding?
A: Yes, bicycle helmets are safe for riding.
Q: What should we wear?
A: Jeans and closed toe shoes are required to ride. Clogs, flip flop, any open toe shoes, sandals, and high heels are not permitted any where in the barn, pasture, or pond area. You do not need riding boots per se and we strongly discourage very pretty (often pink) cowboy boots. They will get dirty! Tennis shoes are fine. You can bring a pair of shorts to change into when not riding.
Q: Can we visit your farm?
A: Of course! Just call a few days ahead and let me know when you want to come. I often substitute teach and am not always home.
Q: For birthday parties, are younger children/siblings counted for the package amount?
A: Only the children who will be riding are counted.
Q: Can we bring our own cake for a birthday party?
