 Kids staying at the ranch on our All Inclusive Package have the opportunity to be involved in one of the most educational and fun children's program available today. This program is designed for kids age 8 - 18. Hands on experiences with their horse is the centerpiece of this program. Before arriving at the ranch, children will recieve our ranch's horsemanship manual to help expand their learning experience.
