This was to be our first horseback riding trip for Banneker students... and it well surpassed our expectations. We brought 28 students and 9 chaperones to Sweet Meadow Farms in Sherborn, Massachusetts.
From there we broke into two groups: a horseback riding group and a tour group. The horseback riding group road Bubba and Jude. Everyone got a chance to do some trotting and to learn how to use the reins.
The tour group got to got to see all of the domestic and exotic animals. There were: goats, miniature horses, tame geese, pot belly pigs, a kangaroo, fish, a bearded dragon, and a huge tortoise. Julie, the owner and tour guide was very knowledgeable about the animals.
We all loved this trip. We can't wait to go again next year!
