*Riegsecker Barn Tour: Learn about the gentle giant Percheron horse while taking a tour of the barn they call home. Find out all the fascinating facts about these horses such as where they came from, how much they eat, how a horse is measured and what they are used for. See the gorgeous hand crafted carriages used for weddings and parade with all the ornate detail that’s hand painted. Visit the tack room where you can see the difference between a Quarter horse shoe and those belonging to one of the residents of the barn. Who knew that a show harness was different from an everyday harness or that a special shoe is used for parades to get a horse to high step in such a majestic way. There will be time for questions along the way, so if there are things that haven’t been discussed don’t hesitate to ask.
