McWatt Family Farms

Horse Based Programming - All Ages and Abilities


 Here at McWatt Family Farms we value relationships with our horses - they are not just an asset we use to generate money on the farm, they are family.

All of our programs are based in Natural Horsemanship, the majority of our programs are not riding based, rather are centered around the concept of being with the horse where the horse is at.  That being said, we do ride here - however most of our horses are  rescues and are at various stages of re-training.
