GAMBIER — The Kenyon College Equestrian Team will host its annual Open Barn event on Saturday at the new barn location. After completing their best competitive year yet, the team will celebrate and welcome visitors to Hickory Hill Farm, located off of Ohio 229 in Mount Vernon.
The team came in third place in their division this year, riding close on the heels of Findlay University and Lake Erie College, and achieving a team record.
The event will offer a variety of activities for the whole family, including pony rides, a barbecue lunch, a petting zoo and face painting. Raffle prizes will also be available throughout the event. In addition, members of the team will perform riding demonstrations periodically, giving guests a chance to learn about the sport.
This year’s Open Barn event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hickory Hill Farm, 7820 Old Delaware Road, Mount Vernon. All proceeds will directly support the Equestrian Team and the costs associated with their horses. Any questions can be answered by contacting the team directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
