Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile. It's been a very busy year here at the Ranch! We have partnered with the local YMCA to provide horseback riding lessons. The lessons have really taken off this year surpassing trail riding as the top income source. We had been doing lessons everyday of the week and even had to start adding times on the weekends. This is a good problem to have! We had set a goal of building an indoor arena by this winter but fell short of this achievement. It will be our #1 priority for next year.
With the cold nasty winter weather starting early this year, business has dropped off significantly. We usually are busy all the way up to January and then slow down through February. Safety is first and foremost so we have been closed due to slippery conditions. It's just not worth it to put customers and horses lives in jeopardy just for a buck. No pun intended, lol
