February Break Horsemanship Program

We will be offering our February Break program February 19 – 23rd. This program provides students with an educational outdoor experience where they can have fun, be physically active, develop a love for nature, and learn responsibility for animals. In addition to learning bareback riding, participants will assist with barn chores, learn how to catch, groom and tack a horse, and experience the magic of being in a herd of horses. Lunch will be around the fire pit. Children must bring their own snacks and lunch. The program runs 9:00 – 3:00 each day, with before and after care available. Sign up for one day or the whole week. Please email or call for more details.

Mystery Update

From the first day that she came, Mystery has won everyone over with her sweet nature. Almost exactly a year after she was introduced to the whole herd, she had a lightbulb moment with her job in lessons and therapy. Practically overnight she became as solid and steady in her work as she is in her body. We had chosen her with the hope that she would take on some of the role Twist left behind and it’s wonderful to see her become the horse we hoped she would.

Marcy Update

Marcy has strong opinions about many things (like how and when she wants to be groomed, or touched, or work) but she is also much more open about what she wants and why, which lets us help her much better. Typically horses take nine months to a year to acclimate to a new home and routine; many people want that to happen much faster, often almost immediately. Marcy shows us that, given support and time, horses never stop growing and changing, and the process of getting comfortable and confident can take years. It’s very much worth it, though, as Marcy and many others have taught us over the years

Help a Horse Day

Blue Rider works with horses that come here to have a second chance at a good life. They are the backbone of our program. Today, April 26th is National Help a Horse Day. It is is designed to bring awareness and advocate for abused and neglected horses across the county.

Although everyday at BRS we help our horses, today we ask that you help too!

Please either donate or sponsor a horse

Four legged and two legged friends thank you!

February Break Program

From February 20th through the 23rd, Blue Rider is hosting a School Break Program. Sign your children up for 4 hours of learning and participating in fun and interesting horsemanship skills.
