Question of the Month: Are dogs allowed at Giant Steps?

Answer: Only service dogs, not personal pets, are permitted at Giant Steps. While the staff at Giant Steps love dogs, not everyone else does. Some people are afraid of dogs, and we want every participant to feel as comfortable as possible while at Giant Steps. Also, many dogs are not familiar with horses and may behave erratically. While Giant Steps horses are “bomb proof”, it is not fair to them to expose them to an anxious dog while they are working with our clients. Safety is always paramount and we do not want to add any layers of risk. For those who do bring service dogs to the barn, please be sure to clean up after your dog.  Thank you!
