r By Jessica Taylor

In 2015, Taylor Ranch started a riding lesson program to introduce the outside world to the Arabian horse. We had a great response and decided to expand the program and held a summer camp that July. We had eight kids sign up last July and we had a great time.

Campers enjoyed learning everything there is to know about how to take care of horses and a farm. They were responsible for feeding the horses and cleaning their stalls. They learned the basics of grooming and caring for both horses and tack and had a riding lesson each day. They also enjoyed a visit from our farrier and watched a horse being shod. Campers also got to make their own stick horse and personalized picture frame.

This year we are holding two camps, the first June 7-11 and the second July 5-9. We will also will be holding an open house on the last day of each camp to introduce the public to the Arabian horse. We will be having an exhibition of the versatility of the Arabian horse and our campers will be teaching what they learned during camp.

This will be a great opportunity for locals to learn about the Arabian horse and visit a world-renowned breeding farm while having an outing with the family that is truly unique. Our first open house will be Saturday, June 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. and is free to the public. Taylor Ranch is located at 4728 W. 12240 South in Payson. You can find more information about our services at our website, www.taylorarabians.com, or follow us on Facebook: Taylor Ranch Lesson Program. To sign up for camp, riding lessons or for more information, send an email to lessons@taylorarabians.com.
