"It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them that will make them successful human beings."

-Ann Landers

"There's more to the barn than just riding."

 

That is our way of thinking around here. Life lessons are learned and taught on a daily basis, by the horses & the VPF team who, in their roles as instructors & coaches, serve as mentors & leaders for our youth. Honesty, integrity, dedication, compassion, leadership and much more are all strongly emphasized in our daily world.

 

The VPF Stirrup Squad is a very important part of our barn. The club serves as opportunity for the youth to enjoy one another's company outside of lessons, to work together on club projects, many of which greatly involve charitable work, and/or community service. An official ASHA Youth Club, The VPF Stirrup Squad has earned national recognition for their efforts for several years. Officers and members take tremendous pride in their community service, breed promotion & youth leadership efforts. Just a few of the groups who have benefited from their teamwork are Toys for Tots, Saddle Bred Rescue, Texas Children's Hospital, Soles for Souls, United Professional Horseman's Association and more.

 

Membership in the Stirrup Squad is free to any child or youth who participates in riding lessons at the farm.
