Horses and families will be working together in an educational context. Family days will comprise a balanced array of activities spanning all ages. Families will be connecting with the horses through riding lessons, trick roping initiations, and ranch-themed crafts, chores, outings, and more. The event will close with a spectacular Riata Ranch trick riding demonstration. “We are so pleased to have a location like Brandywood for Riata Ranch’s expansion into southern California,” said Jennifer Welch Nicholson, Executive Director of Riata Ranch International, “Hundreds of families have participated in Riata’s programs since 1957 and this new location is going to give us the opportunity to introduce our programs to significantly more.” Jennifer went on to say, “Together with Brandywood, we hope to cater to families looking for a unique bonding experience as well as supporting youth that need structure and real-world experiences to develop and mature.”
