Equine Experience
A perfect opportunity for those who are unfamiliar with, but fascinated by horses to get a close-up, hands-on experience that will be a life-long memory.  You will have the opportunity to meet the Potter's Ranch herd, learn about the mannerisms of the horse and how they communicate, horse behavior, communication and their pecking order.  You'll also get to groom the horse and learn to lead them!  This activity is ideal for kids ages 2 years old to 90!  No riding during the Equine Experience)
Hand-led Horse Rides (Lead Rides)
For those who are unsure of riding on their own but want to spend time with the horses, we can arrange a special time for you. Riders can enjoy a short ride aboard one of our horses led by a wrangler.  This is an option for riders too young for trail rides.  Children ages 4 and up can enjoy this experience. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 
Arena Rides
Arena Rides are an opportunity to ride in an enclosed arena rather than out on an open trail. Arena rides are limited to walk only and under the supervision of our Ranch Wranglers. Participants will learn basic start, stop and steer of their horse. These are meant as a one-time event for riders more advanced than a lead ride but not ready for an open trail ride, not to take the place of weekly riding lessons.
Trail Rides
Let our wranglers take you on a guided ride through the woodlands and meadows of Potter’s Ranch. Our basic ride includes brief riding instructions and is walk only, geared to the first time or beginner rider. The ride is one (1) hour which includes time to get mounted, receive instruction, ride on the trails and dismount when returned.  

Horsemanship Lessons
Learn to ride and care for horses through private or small group lessons. Lessons are taught in either Western or English by a CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) certified instructor. 
Horsemanship Day Camps and Field Trips
Let Potter’s Ranch design a unique horse camp experience for your group. We can customize to fit your needs, whether you want the focus on riding, on general horse care and knowledge, or a combination of the two. You also have the option to include other Ranch activities. Length can be from a few hours to a full week, and can run from 9 am to 4 pm each day.
