Day on the Farm

"Days on the Farm" are one day programs similar to summer camp scheduled for holidays and professional days when MCPS is closed. Participants get to ride, practice horse care skills, play games, do crafts, and have a blast! Email for more information.


Our son absolutely loves riding at Great & Small. Although his language skills are limited, he talks about the horses all week long. Since he’s started with the program, we’ve noticed that he’s more comfortable in social situations and that he has an easier time attending to tasks. But the real value comes from the fun of riding. There’s a real bond between him and the horses that’s truly special. “ (Oct 2011) — David and Andrea (Parents)
