Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, the Humane Society of Missouri’s horse and farm animal rescue and rehabilitation facility located in Union, will hold an open house event Saturday, April 20, to showcase its relational horsemanship apprenticeship program and other activities at the ranch.

There will be riding demonstrations by Longmeadow’s riding instructor. Apprentices also will be giving demonstrations and even some of the ranch’s past adoptees will come home for a visit.

There will be vendors, food and a wagon ride tour of the ranch. The Barn Buddies animals will be out for visitors to interact with, and Missourian columnist and book editor Chris Stuckenschneider will read her children’s book “Twist of Fate.”

Cost will be $5 per person.

Longmeadow also is open to visitors every Friday from noon to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 11 to 3 p.m.
