What you'll do
Stroll out to the barn or gaze out into the pasture - it's time to choose a miniature horse that you'll be spending the next hour with one on one... Grab a halter and get ready to connect with a miniature horse that is sure to steal your heart and bring you immeasurable joy! Your experience will begin in the barn grooming your mini - brushing the mane, tail and body. If you don't already know how, you'll learn how to effectively clean their hoofs and even put on a pairs of tennis shoes before we hit the trail. After a brief time learning three basic commands - walk, whoa, and around - on the ranch, we'll set out to the beautiful oak tree lined West Orange Trail for a scenic walk side by side with your highly trained miniature horse. Enjoy the partnership of this four legged friend while you surrounded by nature, the warmth of the sun and the cool of the shade. We guarantee your soul will be touched in a way that no one or no other animal can... immerse yourself in the experience and partnership that only a horse can create and share.
