For the safety of our animals and students, dogs must be kept in the car or walked in designated areas. Just ask us before taking your pet out of the car. Thank You!

For the privacy and safety of our young humans, please ask before taking photographs during activities at Holly Farm.

To visit any area of the property, you must have an appointment. Please call ahead for an appointment with the animal farm. Otherwise, remain in your car or on our arena viewing deck.

What We Offer

Physically, mentally and emotionally, when connecting with a horse, you must be focused in the moment where your only concern is for your equine partner’s well-being.

Horsemanship provides amazing opportunities for youth to learn important lessons in clear communication with others. This skill will shape and influence a child’s ability to build healthy relationships with others.
