Friends heading out for a short summer ride!

We love all of the animals here on the farm! While the goats represent the Farm’s main business and provide lots of opportunities for learning engagement, our horses are for more serious fun and contribute to the 4-H horse club activities as well as carry us on lots of great outings!

IFF is home to 4 permanent resident horses (Arabs and Arab/Appaloosa mixes) and 2 wonderful ponies. We also currently have a gorgeous paint quarterhorse on lease here at the farm, an arab for training and a boarder. We love to trail ride and camp and are looking forward to logging some competitive trail rides with ACTHA this year!

While the Farm does not boast an official riding ring, we have a round pen and an obstacle training field loaded with obstacles for training and fun, and wooded trails on the property. There is ample riding in areas around us as well!

These are some of our shared horse related activities on the farm:
