Comments

It was lovely meeting you yesterday at the Moorestown Car Show. I'm the lady that was looking at your work and inquiring about the butter bell.
Why did the horse cross the road? Because someone shouted Hay! (Find out why I’m telling a hay joke 👇)
.
This handsome man had a great first session. I was told he can be a bit fiesty, yet after 15 minutes he was barely keeping his eyes open 😴
.
He has a very important job as a therapy horse and does a wonderful job taking care of his riders
.
It was a nice balmy morning Riding High Farm. This is a great facility that helps many riders through equine assisted therapy. As always, it’s so rewarding to give back to the horses that give so much to us 💕
.
Do you want to give back too?? Check out @ridinghighfarm to donate a bale of hay for the horses! ($9) ! Hayyyy

“Farm work doesn’t make you stronger. It doesn’t make you anything. It reveals you.
There’s gym strong and then there’s farm strong. They’re mutually exclusive. The toughest women you’ll ever meet spend their days on a farm.

There are more uses for twine than you can possibly imagine. You can tie up a hole in a slow feeder, fashion a tail strap for a horse’s blanket, mend a broken fence and use it as a belt.

“Well that certainly didn’t go as planned,” is one thing you’ll say quite a bit.
Control is a mere illusion. The thought that you have any, at any given time, is utterly false.
Sometimes sleep is a luxury. So are lunch and dinner. And brushing your hair.

If you’ve never felt your obliques contract, then you’ve never tried stopping an overly full wheelbarrow of horse manure from tipping over sideways. Trust me, you’ll find muscles that you never knew existed on the human skeleton to prevent this from happening.

When one of the animals is ill, you’ll go to heroic lengths to minimize their discomfort.
Their needs come first. In summer heat and coldest winter days. Clean water, clean bed, and plenty of feed. Before you have your first meal, they all eat.

When you lose one of them, even though you know that day is inevitable, you still feel sadness, angst and emotional pain from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. And it’s a heaviness that lingers even though you must regroup and press on.
You’ll cry a lot. But you’ll never live more fully. You’ll remain present no matter what because you must. There is no other option.
You’ll ask for so many miracles and hold out hope until the very last.

You will, at least once, face-plant in the manure pile. You’ll find yourself saying things like, “we have maybe twenty minutes of daylight left to git ‘er done” whilst gazing up at a nonspecific place in the sky.
You’ll become weirdly obsessive about the weather.
You’ll go out in public wearing filthy clothes and smelling of dirt, sweat and poop. People will look at you sideways and krinkle their noses but you won’t care.
Your entire day can derail within ten seconds of the rising sun.
You can wash your coveralls. They won’t look any cleaner, but they will smell much nicer.

Farm work is difficult in its simplicity.
You’ll always notice just how beautiful sunrises and sunsets really are.
Should you ever have the opportunity to work on a farm, take the chance! You will never do anything more satisfying in your entire life.”

Hello, all! Today is #GivingTuesday and this year we are raising funds for Brody.

Brody, AKA Pocket Prince, is a registered Appaloosa. He was a rescue with quite an impressive resume. For many years Brody worked as a search and rescue horse. He retired and was given a new home with a family; unfortunately, they had to give him up as they too went into retirement. Brody joined us a couple of years ago as he entered his next career as a therapy horse. Brody enjoys working with our clients and has proven to be an excellent therapy pony.

Brody hasn't been feeling well recently and he is receiving veterinary care. Our goal is to raise $1800 with this year's #GivingTuesday2021 FACEBOOK fundraiser, to go towards Brody's medical expenses. Donations received at 8 AM (or soon after) will be matched by Facebook.

Remember, every dollar counts. If all of our followers could donate just $5 today- we would reach our goal in no time!

About us...

Riding High Farm incorporated as Handicapped High Riders Club, Inc., is a 10 ½ acre farm, indoor riding facility and stable, organized in 1979 as a not-for-profit 501c(3) corporation, dedicated to providing special needs riders with recreational and therapeutic instruction. Riding High Farm is situated on 145 Route 526, Allentown, New Jersey on the border of eastern Mercer and western Monmouth County, midway between the City Trenton and Township of Freehold in Central New Jersey. The organization seeks to enrich the lives of physically, cognitively and emotionally challenged persons through riding instructions that engage special needs individuals in a mainstream recreational and athletic activity and by improving therapeutically through the modality of the horse both physical and cognitive functioning.

Riding High Farm cooperates and maintains accreditation with PATH, Intl., formerly known as the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) and strives to maintain the highest standards of care, safety and instructional benefits for special needs riding. Increasingly reaching out and extending our programs, we provide individual therapeutic riding and group lessons to school districts that require physical education for special needs students. Our goals include the integration of the able-bodied with the special needs population in our inclusive children’s summer camp program to enhance social skill development, as well as the recruitment and training of volunteer and community service workers to assist our professional staff in conducting riding lessons, maintaining our horses and facilities, and assisting in fundraising.
