Horsing Around – Naturalist Presentation

May 1, 2021 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


It’s Derby Day! Gallop to the Naturalist’s Cabin to brush, groom, and learn about equines on this day of historic horse races. A very gentle live horse will be available for kids to pet, examine and discover. Children will learn about safety around horses and also discover the features that make a horse’s body so amazing. Brushes, supplies and stepstools will be on hand. Visitors are welcome to bring their own apples, carrots or sugary treats for the horse. Although all interactions will be closely guided by Marianne, please assist in supervising your child in this activity. Call Naturalist Marianne Hudson at 256-496-2710 with any questions. No charge!

Naturalist Marianne will also be at the Stables for the Derby Day event with a Russell Forest critter
