2021 Private Barn Tours

Thank you to all of the amazing individuals, friends and families that have supported our barn tours, visited, enjoyed themselves and helped spread the word! Our tours not only allowed us to connect more personally with guests in a safe way, but also provided much needed funds to keep the sanctuary going in trying times. We know that in the current Covid climate, our guests had choices to make and we appreciate you choosing US to visit and support! We took the safety of our volunteers and guest very seriously and were pleased to offer engaging outdoor activities in a safe way. 


We have had one wild, wet and cold winter so far, but we can't help but to think spring! We are preparing to launch our tours in March, weather permitting! You can check our our March availability and reserve a tour NOW. Of course, our ability to host tours will be entirely weather permitting, as usual, but we hope to start seeing new friends and familiar faces soon!


And please be sure to come and visit our NEWEST and most special arrival,

Po-Tato pony!
