Overnight Horse Camping
September 14 @ 5:00 pm - September 15 @ 9:30 am
An event every week that begins at 5:00pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 29, 2018
This is your chance to take an evening horseback ride, set up camp, enjoy dinner cooked over a campfire, assist the wrangler when taking care of the horses on a picket line (such as feeding and watering, and removing and replacing tack), sleep overnight in a tent and on the ground, break camp, and take an early morning horseback ride all within a scenic woodland environment. An experienced wrangler will lead the horseback rides, prepare the meals, and oversee camp and horse-related activities. After the morning horseback ride, breakfast will be served back at the ranch.
