FWRHA Hosting Open House



The Florida Walking and Racking Horse Association will be hosting an Open House at Darby Oaks Stables in Bushnell, Fla., on Sat., April 20.  Gates will open at 10:00 a.m. and guests will be allowed to visit with horses on the farm, and watch exhibitions and demonstrations of various types of gaited breeds.  Some guests will also be given the opportunity to ride a Tennessee Walking Horse, Spotted Saddle Horse or Racking Horse.  Come see what these gaited breeds have to offer – Admission is free.

Additionally, there will be exhibitions by residents of the Key Training Center (charity of the Florida Walking & Racking Horse Association), which is dedicated to serving adults with developmental disabilities, as well demonstrations of obstacles such as bridges, water crossing, sidepassing logs, and tarps with horses.  Bring a chair, spend the day and join us for a day of horse fun!
