Open House with Pony Rides This Weekend

Dear Riding Friends, This weekend and ongoing, we are hosting pony rides, ice cream & refreshments in addition to our regularly scheduled trail rides. No reservations are needed to participate in pony rides. The rides are $10 per child; any additional children from the same family are $5. Pony rides are a fun way to get outside and learn new skills. We have been known to help make kids “horse crazy” and it brings us great pleasure for a part in such a healthy outlet. Please drop in at the ranch between 12:30 PM and 3:30 PM on the weekend to say “hi”. If you can help spread the word we’ll be grateful for your kindness. Hope to see you soon!
