Great Ranch Week For Kids

There is no shortage of fun to be had for kids visiting the ranch.  It was a wonderful week full of all sorts of exciting adventures for our pint sized guests.

    Sisters Scout & Alli were spectacular cowgirls & even gave love to each other's horse.

Cowgirl Emily loved horseback riding on her horse Cody, and was very knowledgable about animals.


 Riding is one of the biggest attractions at our ranch, because it gives the kids a chance to be real cowboys/girls while they are here.


Despite the tenderness of their years, the kids even got to participate in a cattle drive.  They pushed cattle like pros.

On pioneer day the kids got to paint their faces, create headresses like Native Americans & hike out to the ranch tepee to shoot bows & arrows.


The cowkids also took part in a rodeo- where a lot of playfulness and friendly competition ensued

I wish I could go back in time and come back to the ranch as a kid!  They have a blast here!

Thank you to 1881 Western Photography for the amazing pictures!  They really captured the week at Wilderness Trails Ranch well!


Stacey got it right - this was Scout and Alli's best vacation EVER (their mom's as well). The only way to dry their tears upon leaving was to promise a return trip next summer! Amazing ranch, scenery, staff, friends, food and (of course) horses. Thank you WTR!
