The new RANCH LIFE program has brought some amazing people to the ranch! No experience necessary to enjoy this immersive experience! 🐎🤠
Below is a review from our most recent RANCH LIFE participants…
“The ranch life experience was wonderfully immersive, and left me feeling empowered with new horse care skills. The moment we pulled up, we were greeted by Kaiya the cat who entertained us with pets, purrs and her adorable hunting skills. Ms. Jean was extremely friendly and welcoming, and gave us a clear plan of the day’s activities.
Right off the bat, Ms. Jean had us feeling like seasoned ranch hands as we helped herd the horses. We helped care for several of them, from wrapping a wound, to helping with a chronically hurt eye, learning all the way. Throughout, we learned how to tie daisy chains, put on a horse lead, and how to give horse pedicures! It’s one thing to just go on a trail ride, and a whole other feeling being immersed in the process of getting to know and care for the whole herd.
The entire time Ms. Jean was present. Her teaching style is so welcoming, makes you feel confident, and creates a safe space to build your own skills and independence while having supervision and strong leadership.
We retrieved and learned how to put our own saddles before mounting Blaze and Chili, our trusty trail ride steeds. We rode with Ms. Jean down the trail and through the woods to an adorable western town for some shade, lunch, and photos. The ride back was even better along a picturesque trail, with gorgeous fields and mountain views. We gave the lovely but sweaty Chili and Blaze a quick bath afterward before turning them back to the herd. Ms. Jean snapped great pictures of us throughout the day and AirDropped them to us before we left, so the memories of this immersive and exciting experience could be remembered.
This was a surprise birthday present for me, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. Thank you Ms. Jean for taking the time to teach us and leaving us feeling like we’d done it all before!”
