The snow is melting! We are still having a blast, enjoying all our new friends, the delicious food, and the scenery! It did snow briefly on Monday, but only long enough to play a little bit on the deck. We’ve started the horseback rides, which has been amazing! It’s really run to learn how to tack a horse and then learn how to ride!
Winter has returned to the Ranch! It started snowing late Wednesday night and didn’t stop at all on Thursday! Thankfully the Ranch was really prepared with a snowplow, a Bobcat excavator, and a lot of shovels. We also had plenty of warm liquids and fire in the fireplace. Overall it was a great day, especially for those of us not used to seeing snow!
Just a note, we don’t blog over the weekends here at the Ranch, but make sure to check back Monday afternoon for a few updates and photos from Saturday and Sunday. Over the weekend, the students get to sleep in and take a break from the academics. Some students will have a chance to horseback ride.
We made it to the Ranch! And have already had one great sunny day! After arriving on Tuesday we did some short activities and then got moved into our rooms to rest up. Yesterday we met all the Ranch staff, started our academics and met the horses and small animals at the barn. Here are some photos from our first 2 days.
