Horseback Riding plus Farm Fun Activities for All
“Sweetwater Farms is where kids can trade ‘screen time’ for hands-on organic activities. We have horses, farm animals, sunshine—and yes—dirt,” says Roberta Jackson, head trainer and owner of Sweetwater Farms.
Raised in Bonita, Jackson was horse-crazy as a girl. When she was 11, her family purchased “Nutmeg,” a quarter horse, and that was the start of a lifetime devotion to horses and people. Aware of the positive power that horses have on people, Jackson opened Sweetwater Farms in 1985.
Located in Bonita, the farm offers many activities: beginning horseback riding lessons for ages 4 and up; riding school for more experienced riders; monthly horse shows; summer, spring and holiday camps; family and scout troop trail rides; birthday parties; family farm visits; a petting barn; hay rides and special needs programs. “It’s a farm in the middle of the city,” says Jackson.
