What you'll do

Once your experience is booked, you will join us at our barn where you will get to meet our "furry" friends. You will get to pet, play, hand walk, groom and spoil our mini horses, Nicci and Luigi. Nicci, is the spunky and sassy mini, she loves long walks on the beach and teasing her little brother Luigi. Luigi, the smallest of the 2, is quite the gentleman, very sweet, but sneaky, so you better watch those treats when they are in your hands!
Other things to note
The ranch is a working ranch, with horses, dogs and our staff, we do have a portable restroom on-site and a picnic table.

Charlie's Miniature Horse Experience was super fun for my 6 and 8 year old daughters. They got ride a horse, groom and "train" the minis, and then there were pigs and chickens and ducks, oh my! It was more than we expected and a really fun time! Charlie was very responsive and extremely easy and pleasant to deal with.

This mini horse experience was incredible! Both horses were friendly and had unique personalities that made the experience even better. Charlie and his staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and welcoming from start to finish. It’s truly a wonderful time in a beautiful, tucked away corner of gorgeous land.

I brought my daughter in for the mini horse experience but got SO much more than that, we were totally surprised. Not only did she groom and walk the two horses but she was able to ride one of the big horses (she has ridden before) and even went a bit through the property. We also visited a neighbors farm to pick up eggs from the chickens. Next year when we come back we will be partaking in the beach trail ride. Highly recommend Charlie and his crew!
