Private Group Tours for Youth

Private Group Tours for Youth

All too often young people are the first responders to equine veterinary issues. To help educate and empower youth to make good decisions during equine emergencies, we have developed Private Group Tours which are ideal for pony clubs, 4H, young riders and Green Certificate Participants.

Education is key to making the right call for managing common emergencies. These tours will include information on lameness, cuts/lacerations, choke, eye injuries and colic and what to do when faced with these urgent situations.

We are offering behind the scenes access to our state of the art clinic to teach what it takes to get your horse the help they need, when they need it.

Tours are free of charge and are approx 90 mins in duration

Have a group? Call and book today!

Grand Opening Celebration & Dance

Grand Opening Celebration & Dance

We are all settled in to our new equine veterinary hospital and would love for you all to come have a behind the scenes look. We know you are going to love it as much as we do!

The open house will run from 12pm to 3pm, during which time we will be hosting tours, giving out prizes, playing games, and providing demos of a few of our new gadgets as well as some of our old faves. We'll have complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks. Kiddos are welcome during the open house and can enjoy some games and face painting!

From 8pm to 12am, we'd love for you to join us for an evening of celebration as we dust off our boots and welcome TC and Company to help us kick up our heels and inaugurate the new hospital! There will be some refreshments available, but BYOB is appreciated to make sure we all have a roaring good time! No minors at the dance please.

Everyone is welcome so feel free to share with your friends! We look forward to seeing you there!
