What is the difference between a Hug & Groom and a Free Rein Tour?

At a Hug & Groom you and your guests will learn something amazing! All of our event participants come into the Free Rein pasture to spend time grooming, touching, and interacting with Free Rein’s rescued horses. Our volunteers are trained to help and support you while interacting with the rescued horses.

On a Free Rein Tour, you experience horses and nature in an immersive experience. As our guests, you are guided by a Free Rein docent into and around the pasture to meet the herd of rescued horses, learn about them and the therapy they provide; then mosey through the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center to see and hear about the stables and its equestrian residents; then take a walkabout in the neighboring Urban Forest to discover the spectacular, growing habitat that nurtures native species and migratory birds.

2. Hug & Groom groups are limited to 20-50 people, with reservations on a first-come, first-served basis.
