      Farm tours are guided educational presentations at demonstration
      horse farms. These tours are an excellent opportunity to take a
      first-hand look at different options for managing horses in an
      environmentally sensitive manner. Each farm is unique and offers
      its own perspective on environmentally sensitive horsekeeping.
      Bring your cup for coffee, dress for the weather and join us
      rain or shine!

      Join program director Alayne Blickle and her husband Matt
      Livengood to tour their reining horse farm. All horses, horse
      facilities and pastures are located on 4 acres of this property
      - which makes this 10 acre piece similar to many 5-acre horse
      properties, or smaller! The back 5 acres is a stewardship forest
      managed for riding trails, wildlife and firewood. This property
      is in the Public Benefit Rating System, a program that offers
      reduced taxes in exchange for keeping the land in open spaces.

      Highlights of this farm include:
      Mudless paddocks with gravel footing
      French drains to reduce mud
      Soil cement composting area
      Worm bins for household food scraps
      Pasture management and rotational grazing
      Natural insect control
      Two outdoor, all-season riding arenas
      All season, mudless, outdoor washrack
      All horse facilities and pastures on 4 acres
