Barn Buddies

Zooming With My Barn Buddies

This is a virtual horse and barn education experience, with horse-themed activities encouraging learning and social interaction in a fun and creative way. The Zoom classes will be co-led by Special Education teacher/Equi-Ed Volunteer, Meaghan, Max, and instructional assistance provided by Tatiana.


With lessons on hold for an unknown period of time, here's a way we can stay connected and keep learning about all things horses! The 5-week zoom sessions, Feb. 6 through March 6, are available for all of our students, current, former, and future, and any of their family members. Also invited are our volunteers and their family members. Anyone is welcome!
