Our weekend get-away Programme is for all of you who crave some relaxing time amongst horses and horse friends away from daily life and just slow it down a bit.
A weekend at the M&M Ranch is a great experience for anyone who has an interest in horses and nature. You should be comfortable spending all day in the outdoors and be physically active.
The programme is designed both for those new to horses and also those who already have some previous experience but feel like it’s been a while and want to ease into it all again.
Plan to arrive at the ranch near Bragg Creek between 4 and 6 pm. Dinner will be served in our cozy guesthouse “Ranch Style” with all our staff and other guests around. It’s a great way to get to know the people you will spend most of your weekend with.
After breakfast, you will meet your instructor for the day. The first day is all about getting comfortable around horses, learn about their nature, what they like, what they dislike and how we should act around them to be safe and a responsible leader. Catching, leading, tying, grooming and tacking is all part of this morning exercise. Your instructor will the give you a thorough intro into what it takes to get a horse to listen to you under saddle. After Lunch we head out on the trail in the foothills around the ranch. The scenery is beautiful. After 2 hours you return to the ranch where you get to untack your horses and give him some well-deserved treats. There will be some resting time before dinner is served. After dinner, we may start a fire under the stars or just cozy up under a blanket.
With all the new skills you learnt the day before we will prepare for an all day trail ride in the foothills. This time, we head in a different direction, with a pack lunch in our saddlebags. The ride will be around 4 hours plus break times. After returning to the ranch in the mid afternoon it will be time to pack up and return to reality. Hopefully with recharged batteries!
