Welcome to Eye of the Storm’s Open House

November 5th, 2011 1-4pm

Fun for the Day:
A Bit About Bits – In the Cabana
Interested in learning about bits? Which bits work for which jobs. How to fit bits. Learn about bits from old western cowboy bits, to modern dressage bits. Learn the difference between the materials they’re made of. Decide which bit is right for your horse!

Adding a Horse to your Family? – In the Cabana
What to think of before you decide to buy a horse. How to pick the perfect companion. What questions to ask before you buy. How to budget for a horse (purchase price and maintenance)

Pony Parade – In the Ring (behind the big barn)
Get a chance to meet all the horses as they show their stuff. Let them tell you how they came to eye of the storm. Then, the Grande Finale! Let the young volunteers show you how a lot of love and a little creativity can make even unridable horses tons of fun!

100% of the donations goes directly to the animals at Eye of the Storm,
for hay, grain, bedding and veterinary care.

Thank you so much for your support
Please no dogs or unattended children
Please do not go in either of the barns – so as not to stress the horses
Feel free to peek around the doors from the outside to see the horses that are inside

Here's hoping for a big crowd!!
