How you can Help!


Now Offering Babysitting with a Horsey Twist!


School closures have put many families in stressful situations and managing unexpected childcare is not easy. Our horses need to maintain a regular schedule to afford their care; and the virus slowdown is putting them in a precarious situation. This is a solution that will help families and the horses here! 

We are offering childcare with a horse twist for school age children. Cost is by a mutually agreed on price that won't hurt you or us. 

This is a modified program; horse riding is NOT guaranteed, but lots of horse time and horse love is. 

We practice aggressive hand washing and social distancing of 6 feet personal bubbles. Fresh air, activity and exercise abound! Keep your kids busy and as safe as anyone can be without complete isolation. LIMITED to 6 children.

About Us



The Whole Horse Place is a unique horse experience for the average person with little or no horse exposure.  We offer many affordable program options for individuals or groups. Our approach to teaching horsemanship begins and ends with safety first.  Teaching you to be in control of your horse at all times is our primary concern, and from that foundation all other aspects of horsemanship will be successful. 

We are located on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula with miles and miles of scenic trails, wildlife, beaver ponds, and breathtaking mountain views. Experience serenity and enjoy.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enrich lives with our horses. We teach all aspects of horsemanship, "From Hooves to Ears", and give you the time to establish relationships with these most excellent creatures. We are NOT just a riding facility! They say there is nothing better for the inside of a person than the outside of a horse, and we believe it.
