Farrel-McWhirter Riding Club

The Riding Club has been working hard and growing rapidly since 1997, receiving the Washington Recreation and Parks Association's Award of Excellence in 2007. Currently we have 36 active members enjoying all that this special program has to offer.

Riding Club members spend time at Farrel-McWhirter Farm learning new equestrian skills, making new friends, and enjoying hands-on experiences with all the animals. Most important, members help younger children to have a positive and educational experience in our equestrian programs.

As a member of the Farrel-McWhirter Riding Club you will not only enjoy times at the farm, but many off-site group activities. Our Riding Club has officers and committees that work to plan at least one off-site activity a month, such as ice skating, visiting a ranch, or enjoying a live rodeo.

You must be at least 12 years old to join the club, but you don't need any previous horse experience. We provide extensive training by our expert instructors and work hands-on with each Riding Club member. Riding Club dues are $15 a year and membership includes: hands-on training, a Riding Club T-shirt, and other discounts. You can earn incentive awards to free rides and trainings, while having fun! Scholarships are available for membership dues.
