Cream Ridge, NJ — Get a leg up and gallop into the holiday season with the Standardbred Retirement Foundation for an amazing afternoon of enjoyment at the farm.
On Saturday (Nov. 16) from 1:30-4 p.m. the farm will be set up to welcome the holiday season. Added to the day’s list (below) is a roping demonstration by Dylan Irving, a NJ cowboy, and if time permits, a little hands instruction for our guests. Colleen Francisco will now be our Animal Communicator, and we now have 90 horse blankets available, some for sale, and some are free to good homes.
• Wine and craft beer tasting and seasonal pies
• Watch and win at Horse Plop Bingo. Choose the # where our horse will drop his plop on a Bingo grid in the grass paddock. Win a $250 gift card. See our website to get your square(s) as spots are filling fast (www.AdoptaHorse.org)
• Meet our little fuzzy nosed baby whose mom was tagged to ship for slaughter. Today, this baby is a beauty and will delight you for sure. She is also looking for a home. Help us name her.
• Experience the talent of Animal Communicator Colleen Francisco who will engage you in her communication with SRF’s horses by reading their body language to learn about their lives, their smiles, their stresses and more
• Toasty up with a bonfire and marshmallows, and sip on hot cocoa or hot cider

• Roping demonstration (new)
• How about a gift basket auction with great horsey things, and not so horsey items too

This event is free and much of it is under covered areas. It is rain or shine, unless an unexpected storm causes a re-schedule. Visit our Facebook page the morning of the event to check for any weather related concerns.
If you are interested in adopting, adoption applications are available on our website at www.AdoptaHorse.org. Fill out an application before the event to be approved, so that one horse that you may fall in love with at the event doesn’t get away. Most of the available horses are not on the website.
