Description: Open House at the Hitching Post is for kids and families who have always wanted to get to know horses a little better without committing to a lesson program. Come learn about the many aspects of horses, horsemanship, and riding in a fun atmosphere! All ages are more than welcome to attend. 

The open house will include a series of stations, some hosted and some self-guided, to introduce horses and horsemanship. This hands-on, diverse experience will help children meet and fall in love with horses. Plenty of horses will be at the event for petting, lead lines, and visits! 

Start time is 9:00am, and the event will conclude at 12:00pm. Each station will take roughly 5-10 minutes, and start times are staggered, so you may come at your leisure without a specific arrival time. All activities and stations will wrap up promptly at 12:00.
