If you read my last article about "Staycationing in Sebring" you probably wonder if swimming and tanning on the beaches of Lake Jackson is the only fun Highlands County has to offer. Not by far!
We are one of the many lucky families that get to staycation in Sebring this summer. The $5,000 a week horseback riding camp just wasn't in our budget. Thanks to Granny living in Frostproof, our daughter got to spend time with 7 cute puppies, baked cookies, watched silly sitcoms from the 50's with Grampa and Grampa got to eat more ice cream because you gotta have ice cream around with an 11 year old visiting.
Heartland Horses & Handicapped offers weekly horseback riding sessions for a donation of $5. All proceeds support Heartland Horses & Handicapped's free riding program for children and adults with special needs.
My daugther is 11 and of course she loves horses. She had a blast. She couldn't believe she would get to ride on a real horse! It was a great surprise for her and something to remember for a long time.
If your kids are telling you they're bored during the summer break, check out Heartland Horses & Handicapped. $5 is only a small price to pay and they'll be happy to have you over.
