Gentle Giants Barn Rules

  1. All riders must have long pants, and closed toed heeled boots or riding shoes. No riding is permitted in shorts or tennis shoes.

  2. Allow enough time to groom, tack, and untack your horse. Our volunteers will be there to help with anything should you have a problem or question, but we do want to see how you interact with and handle the adoptive horse.

  3. Please do not bring children with you to your appointment, unless the adoptive horse is intended for the child. If you are bringing a guest, please let us know in advance.

  4. No one shall go into the pastures without the assistance and invitation of a staff member.

  5. All riders must wear a helmet when mounted. We can provide a helmet for you if you do not have one.

  6. No smoking in the barn.

  7. Please do not bring pets to the farm. Our dogs unfortunately do not enjoy sharing their space!
