Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm has reopened its independent riding program, veteran-retreat weekends, Early Intervention therapy and assisted riding on a limited basis, in accordance with what is possible under state guidelines. Ironstone Farm has lessons by appointment only to comply with social distancing and other state guidelines around COVID-19.
Current guidelines continue to restrict what can be offered at this time. Whenever the state issues new information, Ironstone will assess whether it can expand offerings to other riders, volunteers and program participants, while following all state guidelines and Ironstone’s own commitment to safely improving lives. We look forward to welcoming back all involved in our Ironstone community when it is safe to do so.
From hats to sweatshirts to pants to jackets, our new store offers many ways to support Ironstone Farm's efforts -- and look great doing it!
Effective July 1, Deedee O'Brien stepped down as Executive Director of Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm, after 37 years of leadership.
Deedee says, "It is time! My passion is still and always will be with Ironstone and I will continue to work in support of the people and programs that are so important to so many." She will continue writing grants and raising money for Ironstone so it can help hundreds of people each week.
This year our normal "SPONSOR A CHILD" gala donations will be used to support our programs and help our nonprofit continue during this unusual time. We pledge that where possible we will continue to sponsor children whose families need assistance to receive the therapy or therapeutic riding their children need.
