Children at the Ranch
Great for children aged 3 and over
Ages 3-10 ride in our Children's Program. We are one of few ranches out there who offer horseback riding programs for children 3 to 6 years - this is definitely something you'll love that sets us apart. With safety at the top of our mind, your child has the opportunity to fall in love with horses at an early age. Our children's program allows your child to ride the trail while being led by our trusty wranglers. Ride length is specifically devised for the interest of your child.
If your child is able to handle the horse by him or herself - established through our trusted safety-certification program, your child can ride next to a wrangler without being led.
Children do everything that adults do, but at a kids pace! Because we care about the safety of your child, it is mandatory that children under the age of 14 wear a helmet.
