Tired of being cooped up indoors? A horseback riding center will be offering visitors a chance to indulge in a few classic outdoor winter activities later this month in central Ohio.

Horse-N-Round Fun will be hosting a day of winter fun on Saturday, Jan. 16, from noon to 4 p.m., at Kuhlwein’s Farm Market & Deli in Hilliard, just outside of Columbus.

Visitors to the farm market will be able to enjoy a number of outdoor winter activities, including horseback sledding, pony rides, sleigh rides and carriage rides. A petting zoo with cows, peacocks, alpacas, chickens, donkeys, goats, turkeys, sheep, ducks, rabbits and mini horses will also be on site. Horseback sledding and sleigh rides will be available only if there is an adequate amount of snow on the ground.

Each activity at the event is spaced out enough to allow for proper social distancing. Employees will be wearing masks, farm market officials said.

After your wintertime jaunt, warm up by the fire ring or head inside Kuhlwein’s Farm Market & Deli to purchase produce and baked goods.
