Horses: Ranchers in the Morning
Ranchers in the Morning - Kids get a chance to be part of our working ranch hands-on! On the first Wednesday of May, June, August & September, we’ll have hands-on horse fun, and the opportunities for families to engage in horse activities. This is a great chance for families to come explore the ranch and learn about our Helping Hooves Herd! Come join in on the fun of taking care of the horses! Since we are a working ranch, we ask that parents remain with their kids at all times and that kiddos are dressed appropriately for exploring.

Times: 11:00 - 11:45 am

Private Sessions for Families
It's not just educational, a visit to the horses is always fun. Private sessions for the kids & family offer a thoroughly enjoyable, educational and hand-on experience, ages 5 and up.
What you will find with our programs is a low key, no pressure adventure for children and parents. We assist people feel comfortable with the animals and in many cases help both adults and children conquer lifelong fears of large animals.
Some goals behind our private sessions are: educating you to appreciate and respect horses without being afraid of them, what behavior patterns are appropriate in relationships and the reasons why while having the thrill of not just looking but petting, walking and grooming the horses. Nothing works as well as hands-on experience when working with kids. Ear to ear grins always appear with a day with a horse.
$35 per session, up to 4 family members, 1 hour. Available Mondays & Wednesdays. A parent or guardian must be present at all times.
Facilitate by Maria & Lynda Yraceburu, Avianna Harries (click for more information on horse akicita - guardians on their names)
