We have a number of exciting events in the months ahead! Find out what is coming up.
They come from various backgrounds, but each horse has a unique — and interesting — story to tell.
Your gifts, you can help!
Your help allows us to give our horses the appropriate quality of life they deserve in their retirement years.
A short, non-denominational service will be held at 1:00 pm in the main barn, followed by an individual blessing of your pet and of the retired and rescued horses on our farm. Bring your dogs, cats and other small animals on a leash or in a carrier, with supervision. Lunch will be available. Hay rides will be offered, and our special “horse pumpkins” will be on sale. Meet the Ryerss horses and visit the Gift Shop, which features items for horse lovers of all ages.
The Second Annual Ryerss Family Fun Day was held last weekend on June 13th, as we welcomed hundreds of children, parents, grandparents and friends to join in the fun and activities of our event! There were games, pony rides, a gift shop, crafts and volunteers grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and other picnic food to sell. It was good family fun with a Moon Bounce for the children and even a “celebrity” painting pony, “Minnow”, who gave demonstrations of his artistic talents along with his friend Ammo, the dachshund who did tricks for the crowd!
The Ryerss horses were also on hand to greet the visitors who brought treats of carrots and apples for them. Many visitors also enjoyed hayrides around the farm given by Farmer Tim Blevins who drove a big blue tractor pulling the Ryerss Haywagon. It was a good day for all and successful in raising money to help with the care of the 80 retired and rescued horses that are retired at the farm. If you missed this past weekend’s event, be sure to join us next June for the Third Annual Fun Day!
