Spring Riding Just Around the Corner

Signs of Spring at the ranch

It all started with a little help from the Moccasin Lake Ranch snow removal team, with their equipment and expertise the arena is clear of snow!!! Although we know that mother nature can deliver a variety of goods in Methow Valley March, we have seized the opportunity to get the horses out on the lunge line and under saddle!!!
Spring session is just about upon us and we want to remind everyone of some very important dates:
Early Bird...April 9-June 1
Regular Spring Session...April 16-June 1
Let Em Ride...April 16-May 21
Four Fridays...April 13, 27, May 11, 25
**Stay tuned for enrollment information**

A Gift to Start 2012

We have been honored with the gift of the LOVELY 12 year old, 14H Welsh/Welsh Cob mare 'Sparks Fly by our friends Devon Trepass and her mom, Tracey March, formerly of Winthrop. Sparks made her home with us for almost a year before moving to Bend, OR. Life changes in her family have brought this sweet pony back 'home' to us at Moccasin Lake Ranch where she has many friends, both 2-legged and 4. She is a clever and athletic pony who likes to have meaningful work and promises to be useful in many of our programs. We are grateful and feel blessed by good fortune.
