Does your child want a pony for Christmas?

By on December 21, 2015 | Leave a Comment

It is not uncommon for kids to ask for a pony for Christmas. Why wouldn’t they? Ponies are super cute and easy to fall in love with. Most people, especially the kids don’t know the work and expense that goes into having your own pony or horse. What parents also may not know is that getting your child involved with horses may be easier than you think!we can afford a pony

We at Crossroads Corral feel so blessed every day to have our horses. We believe we have been lead down this path of serving others to essentially share them with those who cannot have their own horses for whatever reason. The life lessons and personal benefits that naturally come from working with horses are incredibly powerful. If only people who owned their OWN horses could benefit in this way, there are so many people who would miss out. That is why we have decided to share our gift of horses with our community.

Ways your child can get involved with our horses:

  • Individual or group EAL/EAP sessions – this is the heart and soul of our non-profit organization. We conduct ground-based equine assisted learning and/or therapy sessions with the horses and our team. The horses are really the teachers and this work promotes positive youth development.
  • Monthly Horse sponsorship – for a minimal donation per month, you would have the ability to spend time with a horse of your choice on the farm.
  • Join us for a “Saddle Up Saturday”- This is a monthly fundraiser that consists of 3 hours of horse time such as education, riding, grooming and more! Ages 7-16
  • Horse Camp Fundraiser– one week a year we conduct a horse camp from 9am-3pm filled with tons of horse fun and education every day. Ages 7-16
  • Join us for our “Family Fun Days” at the farm – Picnic style event filled with horse fun and some EAL demonstrations and activities
  • Join our 4-H Club, Corral Life – 4-H is an incredible organization that promotes leadership and positive youth development. Julie and Lindsay are proud to be 4-H leaders in Seminole County.

Donate to our Cause

At Crossroads Corral, our goal is for every person in need who walks through our gates to be able to participate in our programs free of charge. However, there are high costs associated with maintaining the farm and horses required to provide our valuable service. We rely on the support from our wonderful donors and sponsors to keep our gates open, horses galloping and people growing.

We ask that you take the time to donate to help support our mission, operations and those in need.

  1. Hi my name is Denise and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I came to your Does your child want a pony for Christmas? – Crossroads Corral page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors. I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted traffic from and they let you try the service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my website.
