April 2021 News from the Barn

As we look forward to the gentle rains of April, singing “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” in our classes and venturing out onto the trails when the sun comes out, we leave the distant roar of the cold March winds behind. The horses are quickly shedding their winter coats and gazing longingly at the greening grass.

Change is in the air and on the ground as our participants continue to expand their riding and horsemanship skills each week. Whether it be more complicated reining patterns, more time trotting, or learning to clean tack, there is excitement and learning happening everywhere.

We are excited to kick off our Hope Challenge. Gifts given to High Hopes will be matched up to $25,000! Please click here for more information on ways to participate.

May your April showers bring you a May of beauty!
