The West Virginia University Equine Studies Program will host Halloween with the Horses from 2-4 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 24) at the J.W. Ruby Research Farm in Reedsville. Families and children of all ages are invited to participate in the drive-thru, smartphone-guided scavenger hunt and pick up a packet of educational materials. The WVU teaching horses will be dressed in costume — and kids are encouraged to do the same.
Quotes and comments
“We didn’t want Halloween with the Horses to be another event that was cancelled in the wake of COVID-19. We’ll have stations set up around the farm with clues related to horses, their costumes and WVU. Contact information and scavenger hunt answers will be submitted through an online survey accessible on your smartphone.” — Crystal Smith, teaching associate professor of animal and nutritional sciences in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.
This event is free and open to the public.
