We are collaborating with The Horse Barn in Norridgewock, ME to provide an inclusive equine program!
Here are the details:
All participants must complete the 3-week 'Intro to Horizons Equine' session prior to signing up for lessons. 'Intro to Horizons Equine' will include horse / barn management, safety, and equine education.
After participants complete the Intro to Horizons Equine session, they will have the option to participate in on-going lessons. Lessons will include grooming, tacking, and riding.
Takes place at The Horse Barn:
205 Ross Hill Road, Norridgewock, ME 04957
* We are working towards providing a fully accessible facility / program, however, at this time we do not have an accessible restroom or a wheelchair accessible mounting block.
