Part of the mission of Brook Hill Farm is to teach equine education to the community. Brook Hill takes this very seriously, as there are over 170,000 unwanted horses. It is part of our responsibility to educate the public about the plight of the unwanted horse, and how to better care for one they own. If even one horse benefits from proper education, we have done our job.
Brook Hill Farm offers a hands-on 2 hour educational program in basic horse care and knowledge, that creates community awareness of horses and proper horse care to local community programs such as the Salvation Army, Alliance for Families and Children, and to School Groups. Please contact email@example.com to learn more about this program
Brook Hill offers opportunities to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. We have had Girl Scout troops do one day service projects, and others do their Gold Key Award. The Boy Scouts have also done service projects, and this year we had a Boy Scout build a deck as his Eagle Scout Project on the farm. We welcome troops to come and plan a project, and see what Brook Hill Farm is all about!
In the past, Brook Hill has offered younger children an 8 week program learning about horses. The children, ages 10 and under, learn all about horses, equipment, and how to groom and lead. The children do not ride, but get plenty of hands on time with a horse!
Brook Hill Farm has offered alternative PE to the local school systems – this can involve learning stations to actual instruction on horseback! Programs are made specifically for the students we serve!
Brook Hill is an active participate in community events. One example is the Horse and Hound Wine Festival. Each year the organization paints a horse to enter the "Parade of Breeds" (We enter a "Paint" horse, of course!) We also provide a childrens station and booth telling about the farm.
