What you'll do

During the 2-hour experience, guests will enjoy Smokey's Run Mini-Ranch! First, we'll have a 'Meet & Greet' with Gordie and Ginseng the ranch's sweet and silly Nigerian Dwarf goats, where I will share fun facts about goats that you never knew! Then all together we will take a golf cart tour of the working mini-ranch, always a highlight! Enjoy a fun ride on the trails while learning what it takes to keep a mini-ranch going day-to-day! Then, we'll pet and groom our favorite miniature horse, Buster! I will show you how to care for a miniature horse and you'll have the opportunity to get to know Buster better, and to understand horse care in general. Once Buster is brushed and looking his best, he'll be ready to harness up to his cart and take you for a ride! This is a treat for ALL ages! Near the end of the experience, we'll relax on the covered patio next to the riding ring and enjoy a refreshing cold drink and tasty snack watching Buster and his goat buddies, all the while taking in the peaceful tranquility of Smokey's Run Mini-Ranch. I can't wait to host you!

Meet your host, Alison

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I've had the opportunities to work as a full-time Wrangler in Colorado, lead pony cart rides for a popular Summer Camp, and teach horseback riding lessons to children of all ages. At some point along the way, I became very interested in 'driving', where a horse pulls a cart. It takes a skilled horse and talented driver, and it is tons of fun at any age!! I invested a few years back in a wonderful and sweet driving pony named Buster. He's a cross between a pony and a miniature horse. In addition to being talented, he's the perfect non-intimidating horse for people of all ages to play with, groom, and just enjoy themselves around because he's 'good as gold' as they say : ) He was even brought to elementary schools when he was just a baby horse! He loves people as much as they love him!
