Grieving families can explore their loss with expertly trained horses during Family Day at the Farm. It will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday, June 24, at Maryland Therapeutic Riding, 1141 Sunrise Beach Road, Crownsville, Maryland.

Horses are incredibly sensitive to human emotions and their emotional intelligence can be a helpful tool in one’s journey through grief.

The minimum age for children is 6. No horse experience is needed and all activities are unmounted.

The cost to participate is $20 per family. You can register by calling 888-501-7077 or emailing [email protected].
