Come check us out!
We welcome visitors here at the ranch and would love to meet you! However, due to our busy schedule, we can only accommodate visitors on FRIDAYS.
Please do not drop by the farm on any other day of the week (unless you have a previously scheduled appointment). If you know you will be coming out on a Friday, it would be helpful to ask if we are available that day by dropping us a line.
Morning hours (between 9 and 10 AM) are best as we have lessons and activities in the afternoon, but you are welcome to come at any time Friday as long as we have someone available to meet with you. PLEASE NOTE: during summer camp season (June-August) we normally have camps in the mornings on Fridays so we might have to arrange a different time for visiting on those days.
You might be asked to fill out a hold harmless form if it is the first time you have visited the ranch this year. Click HERE to download a copy.
Visitor Safety and Guidelines
The safety of you, our staff, clients, and horses is of the utmost importance to us. Please read through the following guidelines before visiting the Ranch.
- Clothing: Because we are a working farm, please make sure that EVERYONE that comes to the ranch is wearing CLOSED-TOE SHOES. Visitors may wear shorts only if they will not be working with the horses. You will not be allowed in the viewing area without the proper clothing.
- Restricted areas: Wild Ones Youth Ranch has designated restricted areas for the safety of your family, our staff, horses, and our campers. Please stay out of posted restricted areas AT ALL TIMES (unless otherwise directed by a staff member). In addition, please do not enter the obstacle course, front yard of the house, arenas, barn, stalls, pastures, or the covered picnic area (except during registration), and surrounding areas (horse trailer, fields, fire pit, etc.) Unrestricted areas include the loading dock and the front side of the arena fence, the driveway surrounding this area, the outdoor restrooms, and the parking areas. You are free to remain in these areas.
- Adult supervision: Please note that all non-participant children (siblings, friends, etc.) MUST BE DIRECTLY SUPERVISED BY A PARENT AT ALL TIMES while at the farm. SCREAMING, RUNNING, and ROUGHHOUSING is strictly forbidden, as well as approaching any horse without express direction of a qualified WOYR staff member. We reserve the right to ask you to leave the premises if these rules are not followed (after a warning).
- Photography: We ask that you please only take photos of your own child/relative (or friends). Our staff photographer has clearance to take photos of campers that are on our approved list.
