News and Events

The 2016 Riders Challenge has begun!

This year’s theme, Game On!, will be both fun and educational as riders learn about the many ways horses and humans can play together. Barrel racing, jousting, tic tac toe – who knows what each week will bring! You can support one of our talented riders or dedicated volunteers with a donation in their honor. Contact the farm for a credit card payment or use the link below for a secure online payment. Enter your honoree in the comment section of your payment in order for them to receive credit for your donation. Top money earners will be able to win great prizes!

BTBJ Gala Thank You

Main Stay’s Black Tie & Blue Jeans event raised more than $100k for our therapeutic horsemanship and riding, equine and animal-assisted and adaptive garden programs! Fees paid by clients cover less than 20% of the actual cost—Main Stay relies on events like Black Tie & Blue Jeans to make up the rest. Thank you to those who attended, donated items, and gave their time to make the night such a tremendous success. We are extremely grateful to our event sponsors:


Volunteers needed

Do you have some time to give? Come to a volunteer orientation and/or training session and learn more about the many programs Main Stay offers and how you can help. One-hour orientation sessions will cover information about the farm and volunteer opportunities in all areas of the organization. Attend a hands-on training after the orientation, if you’re interested in working in one of the client programs. Training sessions will cover specific skills needed when volunteering. Upcoming training dates are on the calendar.
