The outdoors, horses, and ponies... We have it all!
We offer so much at Jester Park Equestrian Center! People of all ages and riding abilities are welcome here. We are a large barn facility with wonderful staff that loves to teach the public about the outdoors, horses and themselves.
JPEC is a public facility, meaning we are just like all the other parks in Polk County. We are open every day, rain or shine, from 9AM-5PM. The horses have got to eat on holidays, too!
Stop by with a picnic basket, play some yard games and check out the barn. No appointment or reservation required! We have public restrooms, trails, interactive learning tools for kids and a lot of information. Our barn laborors and full-time staff have a ton of knowledge about not only horses, but the environment and the outdoors.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at JPEC_INFO@polkcountyiowa.gov. (It's easier for us to check email from any computer than the one single phone line inside the barn!)
