Once a month we host an Open House Trail Ride around the farm. The weather has cooperated with us so far, knock on wood, and the trail ride has been a great time meeting new friends and making rememberable conversation!
22 July, 2017 was our first ever rodeo at Hooves & Paws Stables. It was a GREAT day! The rodeo consisted of Pole Bending, Barrel Racing, Keyhole, 50 yard dash and cut back. This was the first competition for some of the riders who did FANTASTIC! Each event was timed and cash prizes were rewarded to the first place finisher.
Pony Day Camp
19-23 June, 2017 was our first ever Pony Day Camp! The children were introduced to the basics in equine care. Grooming, feeding, fun facts, riding, responsibility of owning a horse and crafts. Lunches and snacks were provided. Special arrangements can be made for later pickup. Please contact for future camps!
Rodeo Camp & Rodeo
August 14th through the 18th. The week flew by and it seemed as though it was WAY TOO SHORT! We had such a great time! Hannah and Megan did such a great job of introducing the campers to new skills as well as improving on techniques. There was such a dramatic shift in what each of the cowgirls was able to accomplish at weeks end compared to where they started on Monday. They worked on Pole Bending, Barrels, Keyhole and the 50 yard dash. The magazine race was a new favorite.
Something a little unexpected happened, the girls organized a drill team! They did a wonderful job and the routine they performed on Friday evening in front of friends and family was simply SPECTACULAR! I can't wait until we can do this again!
20 May, 2017 was our, long awaited Grand Opening Event! Our trainers were there, as were vendors and a tasty chicken
BBQ. The Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce organized our ribbon cutting and we are "Off to the races" so
17 December, 2016 marked the festive preview of the opening of our facility. Santa and his elf was there giving pony rides.
Princess Tea Party
08 July, 2017 from 2pm to 6pm was our Premier Princess Tea Party! Many dressed as their all-time favorite princess. Royal snacks and beverages were shared by all. Princess pony rides were the highlight of the afternoon.
We had a blast at our first annual Christmas Party! Mr. and Mrs. Claus arrived early and spent the day taking pictures with future cowgirls and cowboys. Santa's helpers organized pony rides throughout the day as well and snacks and hot cocoa. A BIG Thank-You to everyone who dropped by and shared part of your day with us. We enjoyed having you! Another BIG Thank-You to all of those behind the scenes who made this event happen!
