For the Children

Children of all ages are welcome at the CM. For children 5 years and older there is supervised riding with the kiddy wrangler, who makes sure that they have a lot of fun while learning western riding skills. Children will experience flavorful ranch traditions and may even try their hand at roping the “dummy” steer. As well as riding, a variety of other activities keep children and teenagers well entertained and occupied.

They may spend an afternoon exploring nearby ancient Indian petroglyphs or a visiting the local fish hatchery. Ping pong tournaments and lawn games are frequently organized. Our large recreation building provides an abundance of space for crafts, games, music, and mingling with others. The CM staff works hard to make sure everyone has the most enjoyable ranch experience possible.
