Horseback Riding

What to expect: Upon arrival to the ranch you will be given a short ranch safety talk and introduction to the facilities and animals.  We will teach you about the herd, how to identify the horses and how to get and groom the horses. Once the horses are saddled we will go for a ride in the fenced arena and possible trail rides off the property.  Lunch will be included in the day’s adventure and there will also be time to take a hike, help in the garden, play with the animals, or learn some roping skills.  

Required gear: Jeans or long pants, closed toed shoes, riding/work boots (optional)* cycling shorts under jeans (optional), riding gloves (optional)

*Appropriate riding boots with a heal to prevent your foot from sliding through the stirrup.  However, the burly sole of a hiking boot is sometimes difficult to fit in the stirrup.  Semi smooth-soled boots such as cowboy boots or work boots are the best choice.   OPEN TOED SHOES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
