When we have groups of kids, we like to give them the freedom away from their parents so they can have fun with their horses and friends. Our wranglers are excellent with children, and enjoy taking them on adventure filled rides. If your child is new to riding, or needs a refresher, we have a round pen where a wrangler will take your child for instruction, getting them comfortable before going out on the trails. They are welcome to come on down to the corrals before the rides go out to help groom and tack up their horse under the watchful eye of our wranglers.
Children must be six years old to ride out on the trails. For younger children, our pony Chiquita loves to be groomed and ridden on a lead line. We have helmets at the corrals for their use, and these are required on guests 16 and under.
Regardless of previous experience, your child will leave the ranch with a new appreciation for our four-footed friends, and a few horse-tales to embellish! Hundreds of kiddos have learned to ride horses at the Circle Z, and carry these memories for a lifetime.
