Come relax with our snuggly goats and social horses. Learn best techniques for animal scratches, massage, and pets while releasing stress.
About this Event

We all need some self care time and love. If you love animals this is the place for you! During this class we will offer one hour for all ages to relax, let go of the week's stress, learn new animal petting/massage techniques, and enjoy some goat and horse cuddles!

Program Itinerary:

  • Brief mindfulness exercise
  • Intensive goat snuggles and techniques for scratching, petting, and massaging our four legged friends (can be applied to dogs and cats too!)
  • Questions and answer session.
  • Small groups go to practice their skills with the horses as well :)

Each session will include lots of goat cuddles and possible shenanigans from baby goats to make you laugh, as well as a chance to spend time with our horses. This is a great way to help you release stress, do something good for your body and mind, learn ways to connect more with animals, and just have an hour to be you. 

What to wear/bring: Plan to wear clothing and shoes that can get a little dirty (closed toed shoes preferred). Bring a LARGE TOWEL or blanket (we will have some for rent for $2 if you forget yours). Please bring/wear a mask and plan to wear it at all times social distancing is not possible (the majority of your visit).

Ages: Recommended ages 6 and up (All minors must be accompanied by an adult for sign in), but younger children are still welcome-These classes lend themselves to relaxing, calm time, so all participants will need to be aware of and open to this.
