We were excited to have the Landsdowne Elementary Summer Program kids out for a field trip to the center. They had a great time and the Herald Leader was gracious enough to come out and get some great coverage of the kids interacting with our horses.  

We are super excited to be starting the new school year off with three new schools in our Take the Reins Program, Sponsored by Alltech, with Ashland Elementary, Landsdowne Elementary, and Christ The King Elementary. Those schools will be taking several field trips here to the center and also to Alltech, along with incorporating an equine related curriculum into their everyday studies and also each school will be "fostering" one of our tenants here at the center for the school year.
