Horsemen's Association

Our goal is to build a foundation of young equestrians so that the heritage and history of equines continue in the future.


Using our equestrian community of professionals and experts, we will offer a variety of educational opportunities.


Ages 6 through 17 with an interest in equines.  Must wear proper clothing/footwear and a helmet when mounted.  Parent or guardian must participate and support.  Ownership of an equine is not required!

Junior Program 2020 Kick off Meeting

The Juniors had a grand time during their kick-off meeting on January 4th

They did some planning for 2020, participated in a team building activity working together on a puzzle, and then worked to identify colors, markings and parts on a horse.  They had a very patient pony as their "parts model" and enjoyed being able to look at  all the other horses there enjoying the paddocks the same day!  More fun ahead, stay tuned!
