How often do we long for the days of giving our children the gift of nature, in a safe and healthy environment, where the electronics are shelved and our kids are happy and laughing, making new friends. At the Circle Z, we cherish the adventures that families will experience, either together or separately. We allow the kids the freedom to be kids without pressures, and give them adventures that will expand their confidence and fill their hearts. A dude ranch vacation will not just entertain your children, it will change their lives.

Your child’s day will be centered around horses, learning to ride with confidence alongside our experienced wranglers. Horse games, splashing through the creek, or chasing after cows at team penning are only part of the fun. And after the rides, your child will have plenty of time and space to play on the lush lawns, or swim in our heated pool, or play a game of foosball with a new friend in their own game room. We let the kids be kids, and our ranch will take them to a place and time that for some has been forgotten. A vacation at the Circle Z Ranch is a step back in time, where the whole family can connect with all the natural world has to offer, and experience the simplicity of ranch life.

Although children have many areas to enjoy (the pool and game room) we do not offer an organized kid’s program. We do have lots of open lawn space, where children can run and play and meet new friends. Children must be at least 6 years old to ride, and may need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. While children are directly supervised while riding, once back at the ranch, the parents or guardians are responsible for their supervision.
