We offer programs to suit every level of horse enthusiast out there. From developing basic riding competence or learning how to care for your first horse, to more advanced skills like barrel racing and pole bending, or even an introduction of how to horsepack/camp in the mountains…. we’ve got it all here and can’t wait to teach you! Let our friendly guides take you on a ride like no other to experience the best that horses and people can share!

Fun on the Ranch Morning Sessions

DSCN2658This lesson package includes 15 hours of instruction and meets from 9am to 2pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Here is your child’s chance to be a real cowhand! The curriculum is flexible depending on the group’s abilities, but following is a sample curriculum. Day 1 will introduce your child to the barn rules, our staff and herd, and horse basics (catching and moving safely around horses as well as essential knots they will need to know). Day 2 will include a review of the day before and culminate with a horse ride in the round pen/arena while we play fun games and practice our riding skills. More advanced students will ride in the foothills. And finally, Day 3 will take us out onto the ranch’s winding, rolling, wooded mountain trails (provided skills are there). Everyone will help with the chores from feeding and watering the ranch horses, bathing/grooming, mucking, and tack organization. We will break for lunch, but campers should bring their own lunch from home. Call to reserve your child’s spot today!
