Get ready to tie into some of the 8 lb. rainbow trout in the pond this week by meeting Spencer for an early morning flyfishing lesson. Sip some hot coffee and soak in the view as you learn. Or take a short guided hike. Then enjoy breakfast any time from 7:30 to 8:45. Meet the wranglers at the barn at 9:00. Get your gear ready, stretch for the ride, and take a seat while we guide you through some horsemanship skills.
The kids will meet their wrangler for the week and get an orientation more appropriate for their age. After the orientation, you’ll meet your horse, mount up, and head out for a short ride where you'll work out the kinks and make sure you and your steed are working together.
Gather for lunch at 12:30 and listen to your kids’ bubbling excitement about their first ride. Back at the barn at 2:00. Take the ride that is best for you - walk, walk-trot, or walk-trot-lope. Return to the ranch in time to clean up, relax and get to dinner at 6:30.
After dinner join your kids and try your hand at some cowboy crafts, like roping and whipcracking. Remember, it’s good for them to see you laughing as you struggle to learn something new.
