Fun Fact Friday!
Beginning in 1947, it became common for Jockey Club registered horses to have a lip tattoo of their identification number. This is used to identify the horse before a race and also can be looked up online when buying a horse. They are now updating their policies and switching to microchips.

We are happy to announce that our Board recently voted in new members. Congratulations to new Member, Elena Esposito Swinson, and to our new Secretary, Barbara Cooper Steele!
The Board also recently voted to amend our bylaws to incorporate the Grants Committee Chair as a permanent Board seat and to add an Honorary Board seat for an active duty or veteran Military member. We congratulate Megan Good and Pam Leary on those appointments, respectively.
We thank all who had expressed interest in joining our Board and strongly encourage them to volunteer on any of our committees as we can always use more help!

ADOPTION ALERT!
We are very excited to announce the final adoption of the last member of Three’s Company, Janet - now named Lozen. Ann, one of PFF’s avid founding supporters, has lovingly adopted Lozen into her herd where she can spend time with two other beloved PFF ponies, Billy and Puck. We’re very happy this pair have each other!

10/10/2021

Today is World Mental Health Day. Studies have shown that interactions with horses help reduce stress, calm anxiety, manage emotions, develop confidence and trust in one’s self and others, and guide people through grief, trauma and depression. Horses are a great non-judgmental and unbiased source of guidance and love. Today, like every day, we support engagement with horses to help address mental health issues and we encourage our community to reach out to our organizations, or others in the area, to get support.

Never be afraid to ask for help. 💜🧡💛

SPONSOR ME SUNDAY!
Just because the regular season is winding down doesn’t mean our All Star team of barn cats doesn’t still want your attention. Your support will help fund their food and routine preventative care (flea & worm treatments), keeping them in peak playing condition and ready to do meet-and-greets with all their fans (every single visitor and volunteer at our stadium).
Please contact us via direct message or at [email protected] if you’re interested in a playing contract with one or more of Team Prairie Fire Farms!

General information

Conveniently located in Harrisburg, PA minutes from Interstate 81, Prairie Fire Farms is a family oriented facility which offers a variety of equine related activi-ties. You can take a lesson while your youngest has a pony ride or introduce your child to the joys of riding. Missing that childhood pony? We have many horses (and a couple of ponies) availa-ble for full or half-lease. Our quaint location is great for a birthday party where pony rides, a piñata, a hay maze and a view of the horses playing in the pond combine to make a won-derful memory. Need a local camp for your horse-crazy kids this summer, check out our summer camp which includes a Thursday overnight for an evening ride and campfire. Need that horse moved - we can do that too! Your horse companion need a home? Give us a call to see if we have any stalls available. Our pond is a horse favorite in the summer heat.
