For quite a long time, High Horses has talked about one day owning its own facility. That time has finally come! After 24 years of operation, High Horses signed the deed on a 38-acre farm on July 28th located in Sharon, Vermont. Our new "home" has two large, fenced outdoor riding rings. A 70-foot diameter round pen, An 80-foot round pen as well as a barn with 20 stalls and our very own indoor arena. The facility has a lovely track the goes around the perimeter where we can make a nice sensory trail for our riders to enjoy.  

We hosted an Open House Weekend on September 2nd - 4th for anyone to come see the facility before the start of our fall session.

High Horses has also been lucky enough to add two new part-time instructors to our staff over the summer. Molly Pahuta, who was a rider that decided to put her efforts into becoming a certified PATH instructor. Molly mentored under our instructor, Sienna Whitney. Molly took her certification testing this summer and has been teaching with us since.

We were also fortunate enough to have added Aileen Reney who was working for Easter Seals. Aileen got her certification at UNH while in college there and has worked at Sun Valley Therapeutic Riding Center in Idaho.

High Horses also gained Caroline Allen who is an Occupational Therapist that will be working in our Hippotherapy program. Caroline also graduated with her degree from UNH. Caroline completed her AHA level 2 this summer at Up Reach Therapeutic Riding Center in NH. 

Rhythm of the Rein, in Marshfield, VT had a successful five-year re-accreditation visit in August - happy to be continuing on as a PAC!

Also the Vermont/New Hampshire state meeting will be held Sunday, October 23rd, at the University of New Hampshire. There will be driving with David Bradham and yoga with Lorna Young as well as a tour of the UNH facility. We are hoping to find a few more presenters to fill out our day.
