Petting Farm

As a not-for-profit rescue farm. the Across the River Horse Ranch offers a Petting Farm for families in southwestern Idaho.  We have:

  • Several breeds of horses, including giant Clydesdales.

  • Baby goats --  and their busy parents.

  • A sweet pot-bellied pig.

  • A couple of donkeys and ponies. 

  • Older gentle horses that are a joy to be around.

  • Dogs and cats galore, including Morritsimo, the famous Cowboy Cat.

  • Trails and hikes near the Snake River on our property.

We encourage families with children of all ages to come out on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy our animal friends.  They love people, and rest-assured, you'll love them too by the time you leave.

Come on out on any given Sunday during the Spring and Summer. Hours are 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.  Best to call ahead to reserve your spot.  We ask for a donation of $15 per family, which goes to feeding and caring for our precious animals
