Legacy Stables & Karin’s Horse Connection Offers Field Trips for Kids 

Did you know horses have the biggest eyes of all land animals in the world? Come meet our 25 well trained ponies and horses at Legacy Stables, a beautiful farm close to the city. Expect to make heart warming, educational, and hands-on memories during Legacy Stables & Karin’s Horse Connection Field Trips!

Experience the beauty and power of horses at our peaceful stables! Our gentle equine friends have a way of meeting people where they are and touching their souls. With our well-trained staff and horses, we offer a SAFE, FUN, and EDUCATIONAL environment for visitors to make a special connection with a horse.


Get out of the classroom and experience nature through horses! Located just fifteen minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Grand Rapids, at Karin’s Horse Connection & Legacy Stables we love to share our little slice of heaven with anyone who seeks to experience the joy of a human-horse connection.

Our 25 horses and ponies and highly qualified staff are trained to work with students ages 2 and up and at all abilities. EVERYONE is welcome!!

Students will have a holistic horse experience while learning safety, caring for horses, how horses think, and more. And of course they will get hands-on experience through brushing, leading, and riding in various disciplines! Through interacting with horses students learn respect and teamwork and will gain a healthy confidence.

Our facility features ample parking space, a picnic area, indoor accessible restroom, and an indoor arena for fun year round, rain or shine. We can accommodate classes of all sizes and are flexible to meet the needs of every group. Field trip times are offered anytime during school hours.

Our Field Trip program offers 1.5 hours of hands-on horse fun which includes time with many different horses of all sizes and various stations to rotate through. In these stations students will get to tour the barn, learn how to groom a horse, how to be safe around horses, and other fun facts. They will experience riding, vaulting (which is like gymnastics on horseback), horsey games, and more! Your group is sure to learn a ton, experience the joy of horses, and have FUN!
