School Group Horseback Riding Program


2017 Package Rates

Our special daily rate for school groups is:

$105.00 per person plus taxes
(including teachers/chaperones)

This rate represents a 35% discount off our regular children’s rate and includes; three meals a day, overnight accommodation in air-conditioned rooms with private bathrooms, one fun-filled 2-hour horseback ride daily, cowboy boot and helmet rental and the use of all ranch facilities, including the heated pool in season.

We can accommodate school groups any time Sunday through Thursday nights (with the exception of long weekend Sundays). Bookings may be for 1 to 5 days.

Accommodation:

Students are accommodated in our regular guest rooms. Students are 3 or 4 to a room and bring a sleeping bag or blanket, towels, and pool towel (we provide pillows and bottom sheets). Adults will be single or double occupancy, and will have all bedding and towels provided. A charge of $20.00 plus taxes per student will apply if students require bedding and towels to be supplied.

Horseback Riding

Each trail ride is accompanied by our experienced wranglers, who will help everyone feel tall in the saddle. Prior to the ride, students will be given an instructional session on horsemanship and basic riding skills, during which they will also learn about the nature and instinctive behaviour of horses, how to safely work around them, and how to properly groom a horse. Those who are interested can brush their own horse under the supervision of our wranglers.

Riding Requirements:

In order to match horse and rider, we need height, weight and riding experience for students and chaperones prior to arrival. Very large or heavy persons may be limited to walking rides only, and we reserve the right to limit availability of horseback riding due to anything which may in our judgment pose a threat to the safety of either horse or rider.

For horseback riding we need a signed “Waiver of Liability” for each person. Persons under 19 years of age will need to have a parent or legal guardian complete and sign the waiver, which must be returned to us prior to arrival. Guests over 19 years can sign their waiver on arrival. For safety reasons, each rider must wear cowboy boots or similar footwear with a smooth hard sole and a stout heel, and anyone under 19 years of age must also wear a helmet (bicycle or riding helmet). We have a large selection of cowboy boots available (included in the rate), but suggest that students bring their own helmets if they have them, as we only have a limited number of those for rent.

Payment

We require a deposit of one full day’s rate to secure your reservation. Final payment is required 30 days prior to the arrival date. Deposits and final payments are non-refundable, but in the event of cancellation may be transferred to another reservation for future use.
