Workhorse Rides    

Saturday, March 7    10:00am–4:00pm

In bygone days, it wasn’t uncommon for a farm boy or girl to hitch a ride on the back of a big draft horse while it was being driven back to the barn after a day working in the fields. 

During this program, kids 5 – 12 will learn the differences between draft, saddle and carriage horses when they climb aboard a fully harnessed workhorse for a ride down the lane…after, that is, they help farmers with barn chores like bedding stalls, filling water troughs, and making feed. A children's craft program is also offered in the visitor center for a small materials fee.
