Conditioning the Pine Ridge Dude Ranch horses during the winter consists of diet, groundwork and saddle time. Balancing these elements in the daily care is an on-going process that requires management, vigilance and care. Horses require routine maintenance and consistent mental and physical conditioning in order to remain happy and healthy during the less busy times of the winter season.

Out goats, chickens and cows also to the very best of care during the winter season. They too require a specialized diet, “social time” and routine health care to stay in top condition. It is an on-going daily process.

No matter the weather the work here at “The Ridge” never stops. Out team works tirelessly to provide exceptional care of the livestock you, our valued Guests, get to enjoy and craft great memories with during your visit. If you are thinking of a getaway for yourself, your family or even your “social circle” contact Pine Ridge Dude Ranch today!

GUIDED TRAIL RIDE vs. DELUXE LESSON

Getting saddle time, in any form, is usually the goal of most horse enthusiasts. The more time one gets with horses, the better one can understand and be successful in their interactions with horses. So “what’s the difference between trail riding and lessons?” In this MC Monday segment we will answer that question.

·  GUIDED TRAIL RIDE: Riders get up to 60 minutes of “horse experience” from the time they arrive at the Main Corral. They are assigned a horse, helped in mounting that horse, given a very short speech about how to steer and then head out with the group. The Wranglers lead the ride and bring the Riders back in relatively the same condition they left in. This is why the Guided Trail Rides are always so popular!
·  COWBOY HORSEMANSHIP CLINICS/DELUXE LESSONS: These formatted experiences can be from 90 minute and go up to 6 hours! Each Deluxe Lesson is sculpted to fit the needs of the Riders. Groundwork, Communication, Leadership and Riding are all covered in each Deluxe Lesson. Each Cowboy Horsemanship Clinic, depending on its level, will focus on the “three C’s of Horsemanship” being Communication, Control and Confidence as well as improving Leadership through advanced Groundwork and Refined Riding exercises that will improve and enrich the Riders skills and understanding of the horse no matter what their current level.

In short, this means that “The Ridge” has a horse focused program for everyone interesting in improving and enriching their experiences in the saddle!
