Maple Ridge, CanadaPart of the Airbnb Animals collection

Animal experience hosted by Lee

2 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

There are three options for you to choose from:
1. HOBBY FARM FUN: Enjoy all the things there are to do on a hobby farm. Feed, pet and brush the horses. They LOVE apples, which are supplied as part of the experience. Meet Thumper and Piper, the Nigerian Dwarf Goats. They will also enjoy a treat or two. Weather permitting, ride the lawn tractor and/or enjoy S’Mores roasted over the fire.

2. HORSE CARE: Find out what it is like to care for a horse. Feed and brush the horses. Tidy the stalls and paddocks. Learn how Snowman and Elsa came to Horse Haven.

No visit is complete without spending a little bit of time with Thumper and Piper, the tiny Nigerian Dwarf Goats!

3. DEFINE YOUR OWN: The experience is yours to define depending on your level of comfort. While Snowman and Elsa are gentle, some may not be as comfortable being close to such large animals as others are.

We will start with an initial meeting and take it from there based on your comfort level.

From just being near the loving and positive energy of the horses, giving them treats, brushing them, braiding their hair (I love to braid Snowman’s bangs so he looks like a unicorn). Some people enjoy cleaning the stalls while others bring a book or a yoga mat.

This is NOT a horseback riding experience.
Other things to note
This is an outdoor experience. Dress for the weather! Access to washrooms. I have two indoor cats, Leo and Ashley. They are NOT allowed outside. Please close exterior doors behind you.

My boyfriend and I visited Lee's home for an afternoon and we LOVED the experience. We spent time with her two horses, her fun and friendly goats, and sat by the campfire. Lee and her family are so warm and welcoming, I could not have imagined for a better experience. We were truly treated like friends visiting her home.

Awesome experience. My 5 years old daughter loved it. Lee is exceptional with kids and makes you feel welcome and very involved in the various activities.

Lee will welcome you as if visiting as a friend. The horses are so docile and I was at ease interacting, feeding, and grooming them with their big warm eyes and (my feeling..)a curious stance. They stayed near as I took in the entire farm surrounding complete with weather worn stables and out buildings, country goats a fruit tree or two..I left having learned answers to questions about farm life and keeping animals I’d never had known to ask — had I not visited:)
