The vision for the horse farm is to make horses available to as many people in the community as possible. It is also important for them to give their horses the best life possible. To attract patrons the plan is to use social media, community outreach groups, animal rescue organizations and school groups. All staff members will be carefully trained by management to provide a clean, safe and welcoming environment for patrons. All the activities offered by the stable will provide patrons with an education in horsemanship, and therefore and opportunity to stay on as staff members or go out into the wider horse community.
