Join us Wednesdays this summer for Mustang Mornings at the Farm. Beginning May 24, the Betsy Dowdy Equine Center will be open to the public from 10am – 2pm. Visit the farm, located on the mainland in Grandy (102 Young Rider Lane, Grandy, NC 27939), and meet the rescued Corolla horses currently in our care on the walking tour where you will be able to spend time with our staff. Attend a free movie screening of The Secret of Corolla, a 32-minute documentary on the Banker mustangs, the culture, and lifestyle of the island. There will be a Q & A directly after the screening with the CWHF Herd Manager.
There is a suggested donation of $10 per car at the gate.
CWHF shirts, hats, and other gifts will be available. All purchases benefit the horses. You can also sponsor any of the rescue horses. Sponsorship includes a photo and certificate, as well as quarterly updates on your sponsored horse.
Please note that our program will run until Wednesday, August 30th this year. Be sure to check our Events Calendar for announcements of special events to be held at the farm throughout the year.
