Christmas with the Ponies!

December 9th and the 10th 2022 4:30pm-8pm

We are excited to be hosting the 18th annual Christmas with Santa & the Ponies event!  This two-day event is organized by staff and volunteers so the public can enjoy some horse time at the barn and learn more about what we do at Strides to Success.  Proceeds raised by the event support equine-assisted services for those in need. Our programs are supported by generous donations from our community and from sponsors of this very special family event.  We will be restricting the number of people inside the barn to leave plenty of room to keep a few Elves between you and other families. So dress warmly in case there is a line. You will still be able to get pictures with Santa and drop your Christmas list in the mailbox.  In Santa’s workshop, you will receive pre-bagged materials to make your picture frame and an access code to retrieve your photo electronically.  Cookies and spiced cider will be back this year!  So come celebrate coming together in the holiday season with us!

Tickets are $25 per family and can be purchased at the door.  If you are unable to attend the event, donate $25 through the website to sponsor a family to attend.
