A few students decided to get up early for an activity called slackline walking. A true test of balance, the students had a blast seeing who could make it the furthest along the line! Joe is pictured finding his initial footing, before attempting the rest of the walk. Some preferred to do the activity barefoot, while others felt they had better balance with shoes. Overall, everyone had fun slacking!
The group is pictured after early morning activities taking instructions from the lead RA, Dean. The entire back porch area can be seen with a beautiful mountainous backdrop. The students are listening carefully for directions on how to proceed to their morning breakfast.
Later in the day, we learned a lot more about how to care for horses and what it takes to get them ready for riding.

After a long day enjoying all of the wonderful activities the ranch has to offer, students assembled for dinner!
After a delicious dinner, students spent their free time playing games and socializing. New friendships are already forming and will keep growing as the trip continues.
