Circle C Troop Programs

The barn is open for troop riding programs during the school year on most Saturdays by appointment only. Reservations are available three months in advance. You can come to the barn as a day trip or combine your visit with a weekend camping trip to Keyauwee Program Center.

Whether your troop just wants to have fun riding horses or work on specific skills, we have a program that is just right for you! Please note that reservations can be made up to three months in advance and participants must be at least five years old to ride. At this time we are only able to accommodate youth riders.
