We are happy to once again offer Operation Pony Power as part of our summer programming initiative. Made possible by a generous donation from The Bergen County Police Chiefs Foundation, we are providing 10 children of veterans (or active duty military personnel!) living in Bergen County the opportunity to attend an innovative, week-long program at our facility in Mahwah.
Operation Pony Power will run from July 6-9 from 9am – 12 noon. Participants ride in a supported environment, learn what is involved in taking care of a horse, such as grooming and tacking, as well as take part in arts and crafts, fun games, and more. Plus, participants enjoy fun farming activities, like gardening, composting and beekeeping.
This unique program was first launched in the summer of 2010 for children of veterans and active duty servicemen and women living in Bergen County, NJ. Because of the inclusive nature of Pony Power programming, military children can enjoy riding and learning about horses in a setting that is accessible and safe for those with and without special needs.
There are ONLY a few spots available! For more information, or to sign up for Operation Pony Power, please call 201-934-1001.
