IT’S NOT JUST WHAT WE DO, IT’S HOW WE DO IT!
Here are some of our upcoming programs:
January 9-March 19 Winter Leaders Program. Every Saturday the leaders of tomorrow gather with the horses of today to learn some important leadership traits: Patience, Trust, Understanding, Loyalty, Respect, Honesty, Courage, Integrity, and much more. They work hard on truly leading their very intelligent partners, the mini horses. They learn to maneuver in all sorts of situations using only the traits listed above to guide themselves and their horses to success. These are the people we all want to have as leaders! The horses do a great job training them.
April 21 Annual Cub Scouts Event. Each year we specially design an adventure filled day for Cub Scouts to come and earn some merit badges while they have an awesome day OUTSIDE! We plan with the local Den Leader for these events. Scouts tell us this is their favorite thing to do! We get lots of outdoor exercise and build great childhood memories while getting a great education!
May TBA Fun with horses. The local preschool gets a few hours fun at the ranch and the horses like it too!
May 21 Parents and Partners! Mini Horse Event and Gourmet Lunch. One-day fun filled learning event with horses. Designed for parents who would like to experience the world of mini horses, one-on-one with their child. After we have had a great time with our miniature horses, we will have a great lunch for our oh-so-special Parents and Partners! This day will not only be fun, but it teaches us humans a lot about ourselves, our relationships and horses! 5 partner slots available.
