Howell Farm – Work Horse Rides

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Red barn at Howell Living History Farm in Hopewell, NJ

In bygone days, it wasn’t uncommon for a farm boy or girl to hitch a ride on the back of a big draft horse while it was being driven back to the barn after a day working in the fields.

During this program on March 16, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., kids 5 – 12 will learn the differences between draft, saddle, and carriage horses when they climb aboard a fully harnessed workhorse for a ride down the lane… after, that is, they help farmers with barn chores like bedding stalls, filling water troughs, and making feed.
