One word: Horses! If you love ponies and horses, you will love Touchstone Farms. This donation led, non-profit organization offers horse riding and lessons, as well as fun summer camps and valuable skills for kids.
The horses are beautiful, friendly and well looked after creatures who just love kids and are great for kids to be introduced to them, or to continue on their horse riding journey.
“But a farm has more than horses?” we hear you ask.,,that’s right! They also have hopping fluffy rabbits, pecking hens, noisy goats (they are just saying hi), miniature horses and even a donkey!
You can immerse yourself in the world of horse shows, or learn how to drive a horse-drawn carriage.
They also offer Day Camps where kids of all abilities can join in the daily adventures of farm life, and great for those who don’t want to commit to a full term summer camp. There are plenty of flower gardens and seasonal vegetables for you to enjoy, as you create new friendships and build self-confidence.
The Summer Camps open you up to a whole new experience with horses. You can learn vaulting – which is gymnastics on the back of a horse (we know!) , or take the back roads through lush woodland trails, fields and orchards as you get to understand and learn about your horse. You can even swim with them! They love it. End the camp with an actual camp! Yes, you can camp out with the horses!
