Nestled in the trees, 30 minutes from Seattle, lies a farm where kids have fun, horses thrive, and life skills are learned. Only two miles off of Snoqualmie Parkway, Sharkey Farm is home to the Sharkey family, their three black labs, and a barn full of lovely horses. Kate and Chris strive to create a farm where everyone feels welcome and kids get the chance to be kids. Sharkey Farm is a throwback to how riding programs used to operate. Students all pitch in to keep costs down and love volunteering to help other kids learn. Horse crazy girls and boys get the chance to learn real horsemanship while helping care for their horses and horses live as they were intended to. With the ability to trail ride one weekend and go horse showing the next, the horses that reside at Sharkey Farm are happy, healthy, and good at their jobs.
