This is a fun interactive group for all you ladies who deserve some time for yourselves! What better way to spend your time then on the back of a horse in the mountains!! Group size will be a maximum of 6-8 ladies and we will ride monthly (or more if you wish). I will be posting dates on this site as well as our Harding Heights Ranch Page. I would like to teach ladies everything about horses/horsemanship and how to care for them from the ground up. You will not just be riding, you will be haltering, grooming, hoof picking, saddling and interacting with your own horse =D Horseback riding is great for the mind, heart and soul… it is also a good workout for the entire body as you will find out! Looking forward to meeting and working with you all 🙂 PS You do not need your own horse for this… we will supply the horses 🙂
Cost is $60 per person. Expect to be at the farm for around 3 hours
We retired our Clydesdale so we are no longer offering horse drawn Christmas light tours.
We will be holding a series of Horse Camps in 2017.
Kids will arrive at 9:00am and be ready for pick up by 2:30pm.
Kids do not have to have any horse experience. If the weather is bad we will be postponing these camps to the following week.
During horse-camp kids will be learning about horsemanship, grooming, hoof care, western riding, trail riding, obstacle course, safety, teamwork, farm chores, baking horse cookies etc. There will also be games and a craft.
Parents are asked to please pack your children a healthy lunch as we will break for lunch at 12:00pm. If your child has his/her own helmet please bring that as well. Long pants, boots with a heel, and appropriate clothing for the weather is preferred. For the spring season please ensure warm clothes and either winter boots or muck boots of some sort and a pair of indoor shoes.
**There is a peanut allergy in the 10+ age group, so that group please not peanuts or anything with peanut butter**
What is the Cost of the Horse Camps?
Horse Camp Costs: $100.00 per child.

Birthday Parties at the Ranch
If I want to have a Birthday Party at the Ranch, what does it include?
I have heard that Birthday Parties are fun at Harding Heights Ranch.
A birthday party at Harding Heights Ranch entails a whole lot of fun!! We usually are in contact with the parent(s) 1-3 weeks prior to the event in order to sort out numbers etc. and also to arrange for pick up of waivers that have to be signed by the parents of the children attending the Birthday Party.
Waiver: This is usually done by sending the waiver along with the invitation for the party, which works out quite well. The birthday parties tend to run about 2 hours but this depends on the # of kids (2 hour time blocks are set aside for the birthday party when reserving).
Once all of the children have arrived and waivers have been checked and the rules gone over we then proceed with the Farm Tour of all of the animals including bunnies, chickens, pigeons, sheep, dogs, cats, peacocks, geese, ducks, two miniature donkeys, lots of horses, and an African Grey parrot (if the weather permits) of which the kids get to pet and feed and collect the eggs.
Then we proceed to take out a horse or two (depending on the # of kids and the ages of the kids) in which the kids participate in and learn about grooming and the picking of the hooves. We then teach those interested how to properly blanket and saddle the horse. Once saddled every child gets a turn to ride around the yard with the birthday girl/boy going first of course! The riding part tends to take a while so while we are taking turns doing this the kids can have their lunch/snacks etc.
In cooler weather, a fire is optional (extra $10.00) or also can be available if the parents are wanting to roast hot dogs/marshmallows over the fire.
Each child gets a turn on the Horse(s).
After every child has had a turn on the horse(s) we then allow time for a group photo with the birthday girl/boy on the horse and all of their friends and family around. At the end is when they can usually have their cake/gift opening etc if this is chosen to be done at the farm.
There is Always Something for the Children to Do
Harding Heights Ranch has a huge yard for playing equipment with picnic tables & 2 tire swings so there is always something to do! We look forward to booking a Birthday Party with your family for the 2017 season!
**Birthday parties must have a minimum of 5 kids and or pay the difference to make up for a minimum of $100.00. (Cost is $20.00/child).
