Head 'em up to visit a horse ranch in the Texas hill country near Austin with age appropriate activities. Fun-filled, educational field trips offer preschool and elementary age children a chance to say howdy to all the animals that make their home at the Little Buckaroo Ranch. Meet a Texas size herd of miniature horses & ponies. Pat a bunny. Crow along with Buck-A-Rooster. Get a glimpse of a ranch hand's life & learn the wrangler’s vocabulary describing the conformation and markings of horses. Groom a mini. Enjoy a snack after helping with the barnyard routine. Gather round the OK Corral to cheer your favorite over jumps at the Little Buckaroo horse show. Work sheets reinforce the concepts that are presented or take home a picture to color. Pack your favorite vittles for lunch & bring something to wet your whistle. After lunch, roast marshmallows before you hit the trail for home.
Round up a herd of buckaroos & join your mom's group for a Stroller Stampede along the happy trail to meet all the animals. Bring lunch to enjoy with friends under the shady oaks.
