Farm Tour: Horse Keeping on Small Acreage

Barbara Kelly started horse keeping with nothing but a “wheelbarrow and a pitchfork.” Since then, with the help of the King Conservation District, she has put together a neat and tidy system for her two horses on 2.3 acres.

Barbara, who grew up in Pony Club, now does dressage and trail riding. She packs a lot of efficiency into her sweet little acreage including a 20 meter exercise/riding area, Christmas trees she grows for herself and for charity, compost bins that double as a cold frame in the early spring, a turnout field that she rides on, a small wooded area that works as a privacy screen and track paddock, a clever in-the-house tack room, a simple mud-free outdoor wash rack just off the house, and more small-system, cost-saving measures. Join us on this tour to find out how to turn compost into 50 pints of blueberries!

BONUS: Barbara does Pony Club talks on bits and biting and has an amazing (and very clean) collection of bits. Join us afterwards for a short talk on bits, how bits work, bit uses, and biting.
