Spring is a great time to explore DuBois Center from horseback! Join our equestrian team on Saturday, March 23 AND/OR April 13 from 9 am – 5 pm for a full day of fun with the DuBois Center herd.
Designed for both beginner and more experienced riders, these are horse-intensive days of grooming, tacking, riding, instruction and other horse-related activities. Beginners will be introduced to basic skills, while experienced riders work on more advanced options.
The minimum age to participate is 12 years old and the cost is $65 per person, per day with lunch included.

The Wrangle & Ride day scheduled for Saturday, Nov 3 is FULL with a waiting list. Additional programs are planned for the spring. After the first of the year, watch Weekly Connection and the DuBois Center Facebook page for updates. Can’t wait? Wrangle up some friends and schedule a ride or a half or full-day event for a group of six or more. Contact DuBois Center at 618-787-2202 or dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org.
Do you love horses? Do you want to spend an entire day riding and learning all about them? This fall, we are hosting another group ride day at DuBois Center – Wrangle & Ride!
More details will be available soon, but save the date for Saturday, November 3! The event will start at 9 a.m. and will wrap up at 5 p.m. We hope to see you cowboys and cowgirls there!
We’ve got HAY! After a very dry end to the 2017 growing season, our supply was running low. Now, in preparation for heavy summer rains, additional sturdy wooden pallets on which to set the bales are needed.
Storing hay off the ground keeps it out of the mud. The drier the bales remain, the more able we are to reduce the growth of mold. Mold contributes to large amounts of waste. In addition, moldy hay is not healthy for our horses. Keeping the hay drier also helps to retain its nutritional content throughout the year.
Approximately 30 additional new or gently used sturdy pallets are needed. If you have or can find any that meet these specs, contact Scott Kuether at firstname.lastname@example.org.
