​Mission + Vision

The race

We are a non-profit that serves children and adults with special needs and circumstances.

​Each week over 100 children and adults visit the barn to work with our fabulous horses in order to strengthen their minds, bodies, and souls.  Whether they are attending a riding lesson, camp, or educational activity, everyone entering the barn is welcomed, encouraged, and loved.


This 5K and 10K are designed to celebrate our veterans and raise money for The Red Barn’s programs that support them.  The Red Barn’s “Take the Reins” program provides therapeutic activities that assist in the treatment of PTSD and other disabilities for active and inactive military personnel and their families. The Take the Reins 5K and 10K races begin and end in Veterans Park and will include a t-shirt, and ribbons for age-group winners. *Note: T-shirts only guaranteed for pre-registrants*
