We are having a Spring Tack Sale and Fun Day at Bearfoot Ranch in Canton, GA on Sunday, March 21, 2021, from 9 am to 3 pm. This is your opportunity to purchase new and used tack at ridiculously low prices and help an equine non-profit organization at the same time. We will have a wide selection of new and used tack.

If you have extra tack in your tack room, donate it to Bearfoot Ranch for our tack sale. Your donation will fund the mission of Bearfoot Ranch’s Equine Therapy and Horse Rescue. COVID-19 has really hurt our organization and we are hoping that you will share this event with your friends and neighbors.

Not a horse owner? Love horses? Have kids who want to ride? Bring the whole family out to Bearfoot Ranch during our Spring Tack Sale on Sunday, March 21. We will have pony rides, horsey crafts, and a bake sale. Your participation will enable us to continue our mission.

We want to thank Scout Brayden Sessions from Troop 8880 of Union Hill UMC for choosing Bearfoot Ranch for his Eagle Project. Brayden supervised the construction of not one but two projects! He constructed a pergola for the front pasture to provide shade and forage and put a roof on our feeding station. Thank you, Brayden for completing these monumental projects.

Bearfoot Ranch Holiday Wrap-Up

Bearfoot Ranch ended 2019 with our Holiday Fundraising Events:

Hunter’s Tree Farm on Friday November 29 and Saturday the 30th was a great success! Lots and lots of kids standing in line to ride our wonderful ponies! So many kids tell us they come every year as this has become a family tradition!

We also were at Silver City Farm on December 7th and 8th. This was our first year attending their Breakfast with Santa event. The kids had a yummy breakfast catered by Talk of the Town Catering, sat on Santa’s lap to give their Christmas wish list, then they came outside to ride the Bearfoot Ranch horses!

We heard the families loved it and we know the kids did as we saw many smiles and heard lots of giggles! Another great success for Bearfoot Ranch!

A big thank you to both Hunter’s Tree Farm and Silver City Farm for the invitations and to our wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help make each year a success!! Oh and of course a big thank you to our beautiful sweet horses!
