Mylestone volunteers will be stationed throughout the farm to introduce visitors to the horses and tell their stories. Many of the horses enjoy being petted.

There is no admission fee, on behalf of the rescue horses, many of whom once suffered starvation, visitors are asked to contribute by bringing one or more cans of soup to help feed the hungry people in the area. The soup will be donated to a local food pantry.

There are some options for a light lunch and plenty of beverages during the event.

Mylestone, is New Jersey’s oldest all-breed horse rescue, founded in 1994. Learn more at mylestone.org.

Dogs are not allowed at Open House. The horses are not familiar with them, and could spook, causing injury to themselves, other horses, visitors or volunteers.
