Looking for the kids program?

After a wonderful 16-year run, we have decided to discontinue our kids programs, including Horse Camp, Pony Camp and Nature Camp.

Pony Time for Lil' Buckaroos

We have mini horses wearing mini saddles for mini humans. That would like to enjoy time with a pony. Groom, lead and/or ride. Parents lead the pony, carrying the children, up the path surrounded by beautiful scenery. It’s the perfect photo opportunity with your Li’l Buckaroos. Bring the whole gang to enjoy the experience.
