The day’s activities including dressing up horses, fly kites, make crafts, face painting, and more. People of all ages set up chairs in the grass or walked around the pasture, as horses met with the crowd or navigated the farm’s obstacle course.

Cars lined the farm’s road. Adults, children, and even a couple of pups came to participate and watch the horse demonstrations.
