MADISON FIELDS’ HALLOWEEN HOOVES & HORSEPOWER EVENT
A KID-FRIENDLY, HALLOWEEN THEMED DRIVE-THRU
Madison Fields will be hosting our first drive-thru “Halloween Hooves & Horsepower” event on Saturday, October 24 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM, rain or shine. Attendees will drive their cars through a kid-friendly, Halloween themed route and see therapeutic riding horses and farm animals all while in the safety of their own car. Attendees are encouraged to register online, dress up, decorate their cars, and bring signs as they drive along the route.
Along the parade route, attendees will be able to stop and take pictures at designated stopping points and at our Fall, festive photo booth. Attendees are encouraged to participate in our costume contest! The winner will be announced on our Facebook page. There’s also a chance to purchase Madison Fields handmade goat’s milk soap at a pull-off area in front of the equestrian center.
This event is designed for Madison Fields riders, participants, volunteers, and the local community. Cars will line up on the Big Woods driveway and will proceed through the route. The speed limit on the property is 10 mph. Registration is required to participate in the “Halloween Hooves & Horsepower” on our EventBrite page. You can find more details including a map of the route and precautionary measures we are implementing. Please RSVP as soon as possible as space is limited to the first 50 cars. If you have questions call 301-349-4007.
