Wool felting slippers or mittens
Make your own slippers or mittens from raw wool! Have you always wondered how wool is made into a wearable, felted clothing or accessory? This class will show you the transformation of fluffy wool to cozy slippers/mittens! This experience will walk you through how to make your own slippers or mittens from wool. We will use the "wet felting" technique to shape and size your mittens or slippers. You will make your own warm and cozy mittens or slippers or make a pair to give as a gift! We will start in a rustic Art Studio cabin (with masks and social distancing) and determine your slipper or mitten size and then you can chose the color of wool. I will show you the basic steps prior to starting and then work with you as you layer the fluffy wool into the shape of the pattern. As the class progresses we will add warm, soapy water and start the felting process! The next step is called "fulling" on an antique wash board. The final step is finishing your mittens or slippers by fitting them to your hands or feet while they are still damp. You will take them home slightly wet, but they should dry by morning. PLEASE request a time and I will work you into my schedule! Great for team building and corporate events!
Blue Flower Trail Ride
Saddle up for a true Western adventure! Perfect for beginners and pros alike, experience the spectacular scenery of Paradise Valley on this guided horseback trek along the Blue Flower Trail. No worries about directions or navigation; simply follow your guide and you can focus on capturing photos of the striking vistas. Each of our members has a passion for the outdoors, animals, and wildlife. They will entertain you with facts about the ranch and the surrounding area. With the majestic Absaroka Mountains as your backdrop, learn about the land’s original inhabitants, the Crow tribe, and the local ecosystem. Be sure to bring your binoculars – and camera! – as you may have the unique opportunity to view some of Montana’s natural inhabitants, including mule deer, golden eagles, fox, elk, and more! It is the Certified Horsemanship Association’s recommendation that the weight of the rider does not exceed 20% of the weight of the horse. We can accommodate a maximum weight of 200 pounds. We ask that you meet at the Lodge 15 minutes prior to the start of the ride so that you can be given safety instructions. Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Also bring a water bottle and your sense of adventure! Finally, this trail ride is completely dependent upon weather conditions. In the event that the weather is not suitable for the ride, we will reschedule or refund your tour.
Goat Farm Visit-pet baby goats- milk goats-walk with goats
Baby goats are here! First twins born March 1. As of March 4, we have 9 kids! The final count is 20 for 2023! We will relax and pet goats in the fields or hike to the river. This is a small herd of friendly milk goats. My son and I have raised these goats since they were babies, so they are very friendly and calm! All of the activity will be on my farm in field and woods. The amount of walking or exploring is group dependent. Goats love to eat and go on walks! They will also impress us with their climbing and curiosity. Many times of year we have baby goats--"kids" that are fun to pet. We also milk the goats-primarily in the summertime--you will get a chance to milk goats if you'd like! My son Adam will also be hosting some of the walks.

As we set out for our return, prepare yourself (and your camera) for another opportunity to soak in the stunning scenery that makes our ranch so special.

Trail rides are weather dependent and run during the spring, summer, and fall. The minimum age required to ride is 8 years old. Also, for younger riders, we require them to be at least 4'2 and 60 pounds.

Finally, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the ride so that you can be given safety instructions.
Keep Calm and Brush On
Spend an hour in our rustic barn with a guide and one of our beautiful horses in what can best be described as an equine spa day. You will get to groom and pet the horses—then tack one up (place saddles, stirrups, bridles, halters, reins, bits, and harnesses), for a ride in our indoor arena. You can bask in the serene energy of these gentle giants, and in turn they will benefit from kind touch and some extra TLC. Horses are known to mirror their rider’s emotions, which means they can easily establish connection with humans. This hands-on experience is designed to be an hour of immersive collaboration between man and beast. Other things to note: Please note this tour is designed for up to 4 participants, so come alone or bring a friend. When registering please provide rider’s heights and weights, as our horses can hold various sizes. Too tall or heavy? No worries, you can still participate!
