It seems we are all facinated by them and enjoy their beauty but, many of us have never been close to a horse. Barn tours are a perfect way for children and adults to get up close and personal in a calm and friendly enviroment. I schedule my tours for small groups or individuals. These tours give participants the opportunity to learn about horses and the huge responsibility that comes with them.”What do horses eat? Do they bite? Why do some horses wear shoes?” These are all things children want to know. Sometimes, depending on the weather I will do a mini performance with one of the horses. A tour doesn’t have to be complicated. Many just want the opportunity to touch one. If I have a child that is comfortable with the horse I often let them walk the horse and maybe even do a trick or two. Gypsy is perfect for tours because of her calm nature. Children also love grooming Savannah because she is so tiny. We end the tour with some carrots or apples and all children get a gift packet from us reminding them of their visit. Did you visit?
