Saturday One-Day Workshops

Each season, we at Old McDonald’s Farm, Inc. (a non-profit, children’s charity), offer Saturday One-Day Workshops. One is different each year. These programs offer a variety of topics that are of interest to “our kids” and are equally good for first timers as well as alumni students that want to brush up on the topics. Either way, come learn at and enjoy our Farm Program and see all our “educators,” our Farm Program animals. We look forward to you joining us!
Please wear long pants, layers (you will need a jacket), sturdy tied-on boots and have well-fitted, leather work gloves. Please bring a water bottle and a sack lunch. Please clip your bangs and use a hair tie. Girls or boys are not allowed to have hair flopping in their faces for safety while working with large or small horses.

Jr. Vet. Equine (Horse) Workshop, 9/19/20


Join Old McDonald’s Farm, Inc. (a non-profit, children’s program) for a one-day, Jr. Vet. Equine Workshop. We will learn of the diagnostic plan that Veterinarians use to figure out what is the real problem. Learn what is normal for horses so you know when to treat it yourself or when to call a Vet. Meet the other Farm Program animals (such as goats, our cow, dogs, cats, etc.) too but this class includes how to feed, care for and maintain many different kinds of equine including horses, ponies and our donkeys too! The class is taught by an Oregon State Certified Teacher with 4 decades of horse experience all taught on our beautiful, educational site in Corbett (just past Troutdale).

Available for up to 10 students max. For students going into 4th-highschool. 9:00-3:15, Our OMF, Inc. Bus times are 8:15 and 4:00. No bus then please find directions at and enjoy the drive. $89 per student and $10 for our safe and secure Bus both ways.

Do you need Transportation?

If You Take Our Bus:

The Bus for Old McDonald’s Farm, Inc. (OMF) parking is now at Concorde Career College, 1425 NE Irving St, Portland OR 97232. You can enter on NE 15th/Irving where it is paved. Head north under the building and then turn right. Head east to the back of the property away from all of those buildings. Look for our bus and the really, really, big, old Crimson tree. Concorde Career College has kindly offered this drop off/pick up space to us but please be respectful and do not linger there because we do not want to take up their student parking. They have asked us to drive slowly and watch out for the young people “racing in there” that are late for classes. Please drive super slowly and be careful as it is tight and there are many pedestrians. PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE DOWN THE GRAVEL ROAD AT CONCORDE COLLEGE. There is no access for parents on the gravel road even though our OMF bus will drive on it. If parents drive on the gravel road, we may lose this parking privilege at Concorde. (The bus is too tall to fit under the buildings.)

Thank you to the kind folks at Concorde Career College for this!

If You Are Driving Yourself and/or Your Student:

Please find directions here.  Please note that due to limited staff at these Saturday One-Day Workshops, if a parent is late at the bus stop or we have trouble, we may be late to OMF, Inc. in Corbett.  Please be patient, we are coming. Thanks.
