Free Rein Tours now offers visitors a safe, approximately 90-minute walking tour that pays homage to rescued horses, human kindness and habitat restoration.
Tours are given to individuals and groups of no more than 10 people by appointment only. Participants of all ages are welcome. A moderate or better fitness level is recommended. Docents lead the moderated tours from the Free Rein pasture into the 25-acre Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center, home to 400 horses. The tour continues through the park's Urban Forest to discover more about the 7,500 California-friendly plants and trees added in the past two decades.
Free Rein Foundation began in 2014 to provide non-riding equine therapy and learning programs for children and adults, who interact with rescued horses. In 2019, Free Rein expanded its mission by partnering with the Bureau of Land Management and Department of Forestry to rescue feral mustangs, which have been welcomed as beloved residents at the center.
