What you'll do

We will give you the up close ranch experience, starting with a one hour education on our animals, which includes safety instructions on how to handle horses & goats safely. You will get an opportunity to feed them, groom them, take your photograph with them, and head out for a beautiful horseback trail ride our property. Depending on your experience and fitness level, we can accommodate two beginner riders per experience. Dress appropriately, boots, jeans, tall socks, and a hat! It can get very hot in the summer so be prepared. The entire experience takes 4 hours. We will provide you with needed equipment and water for hydration. You will be guided by the owners giving you the history of the area, the ranch, and an education on our herd. We will do everything we can to make it an experience you will never forget with pictures to share for a lifetime. We have over 40 years experience with horses and our other animals both professionally and as a beloved passionate hobby, and it is our greatest pleasure to share that with you!
