New Friends at 'Brush Hours" first year

Would you like to meet a horse? Bring your parents, bring your grand parents! This is the third year that a small farm in Van Buren offers Open House aka “Brush Hours” to the public on April Saturday afternoons 1-3pm, snow, rain or shine.

During the first year a group of youth decided they wanted to visit the farm all summer so they formed the Mud Pony Club (MPC) and met regularly that year and during summers and school holidays. And SINCE, they have learned alot about horses, they help during Open House, and, they have brought a new activity to the farm: vaulting.

This year the MPC has a vaulting practice barrel to share as well as some technique on horses, besides helping all visitors to meet and greet the horses.

Open House is at Perfect Ponies Learning Center 489 Main St Van Buren, every Saturday in April 1-3PM FMI Nancy Dumond Violette 868 5324
