Military Horse Power

Since the beginning of time horses have been used to support soldiers all over the world. These animals have been the power and movement behind countless armies. Believe it or not, even with the invention of motorized vehicles in the military, horses were still being used. Listening to Historic Vehicle Coordinator Audra Kantor, and Chris Huntoon owner/ operator of Huntoon Stables in Aurora, guests will be delighted to see a horse up-close while hearing about their daily lives and contributions over the last century.

Dessert will be a sweet treat trail mix. The ingredients below are suggestions, but feel free to substitute your favorites or find a pre-made trail mix at your favorite local shop.
