Blazin’ Pumpkin Festival at Swiftsure Ranch!

There are so many fun things to do outdoors in this valley! Bike rides, skiing, hiking, fishing, etc! But for some people living with a disability, access to the outdoors can be limited. Swiftsure Ranch offers free equine activities and therapies to people with disabilities, giving them an opportunity to experience the outdoors and recreation. So, we’re having a Blazin’ Pumpkin Festival to spread awareness about what is possible for our riders who live with disabilities!

Atkinson’s Market is donating 300 pumpkins and we need help carving them for our fun party at the ranch on Oct. 22nd! Pumpkins will be dropped off for carving Oct. 18th or 19th to your class, and picked up Oct. 21st. All are welcome to attend the fun on Oct. 22nd when pumpkins will be displayed.
