• RONORA is home to 6 rescue horses & a pony.  Joe's the yellow--usually the first to approach and say hello.  Flinta's all black except for his white star.  Ginny Blue Eyes is mostly white and has, yep--blue eyes!  The long legged red Thoroughbred is Lacey.  Boom, the big white male, usually vies with Joe for attention at the fence.  Betty Ann is black with 3 white socks, and we call the pony Rosey Belle.   

  • Guests are welcome to visit our four-leggeds & feed them grass or hay 

  • We offer team building experiences for groups and individuals through interactive, experiential activities with the horses 

  • Our rescue horses are friendly and approachable, but concern for their physical condition prohibits us from offering public riding
