We have just added a bunch of videos to our YouTube channel, go watch! That is all.
What happens to horse carriage and power when one moves the saddle back to free the shoulder? Or when the saddle sits right on the shoulder? These are just tools to define how the horse moves and how high it carries the head. How does this effect the horse, and how does it work with the different rigging? What does full double, 7/8, 3/4, 5/8 or center fire mean and how does it effect the horse's power? Each has a purpose and a use. This is an introductory clinic and fundraiser for Hand In Hand Farm. The clinic will be taught by Dave Berger at Hand In Hand Farm, 35105 Ede Road, Lebanon, OR. Give us a call or email for questions ("Reply" button for contact info). Clinic is from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, January 6, 2018. You will want to bring a sack lunch, no food is available onsite. Look us up on the web at www.handinhandfarm.org to see how clinic fees will be used to help troubled kids and troubled families.

Hello! Winter Day Camp starts on Tuesday. This is one of the many weeks of camp during the year that Hand In Hand Farm offers free of charge to families, children, and young adults. Our donors make this and all of our programs possible. Think about giving at end of year to help build healthy individuals and families for the thriving communities of tomorrow.
Support us when you shop on Cyber Monday. Go to smile.amazon.com/ch/27-3572044 and Amazon donates to Hand In Hand Farm. Funds are used for helping troubled kids and families through agricultural adventures, life skills training, and caring mentoring.
Just click on the picture to go to AmazonSmile when you shop. You can designate us as your charity of choice and support us whenever you shop if you would like.
Hand In Hand Farm has taken over the Cowboy Christmas Annual Tack Sale, now in it's eleventh year. It will be held on December 2 and features new and used horse tack, horse, country, and Christmas-themed items, and we plan to have some horse-related presentations. The Cowboy Christmas has it's own page on our website, accessible from this post and select other places,
Cowboy Christmas Sale.
There is also a Facebook page dedicated to the event:
Parents, kids, and volunteers! Please claim your lost and found items by October 11. We also have some excess items that we no longer have room to store that you may be interested in. They were donated in the interest of outfitting participants in one way or another, so we would like to see them go to this purpose. These and the unclaimed lost and found items will be available until around October 11, at which time we will be handing them along to another charity. UPDATE: A lot of the items were claimed and people were able to use several of the excess items, the remainder were sent to the River Center in Lebanon. We will probably do this again prior to the summer day camp in June.
Two public events are coming up in the next couple of weeks, no appointment necessary. These are times supporters and participants old and new can reminisce, mingle, and meet new people, as well as get a tour of the facility and see the animals. Please come! We'd love to have you!
