We are excited to be hosting the overnight Boy Only Cavvietta Ranch Academy this summer. These young men will be learning the ins and outs of ranching, from feeding and fencing and other daily chores, to riding out to check and doctor stock. They’ll also spend time in the saddle strengthening their horsemanship and stockmanship skills. But it’s not ALL work, I’m sure there will be time spent fishing and sitting around the campfire exchanging cowboy stories. Be ready to pitch a tent, and come hungry for cowboy grub on this 5 day, 4 night stay on rolling green pastures in Elm City, NC. Boys may bring their own mounts or use one from our cavvy ($50 horse rental fee for a total of $375)! Opportunities for Bible Study during the week as well. No horse experience necessary but you MUST come willing to learn!

We aim to bring the old working west to the people of North Carolina through Stockmanship, Hosrmanship, and Sportmsmanship. In holding this Boys Only Ranch Academy, Cavvietta Quarter Horse & Cattle Company strives to make the best of a young man’s hard work by teaching them that morals and values are important no matter the task at hand. Our company uses efficient techniques to accomplish ranch chores 365 days a year, and we seek to achieve our tasks—no matter how small—with a sense of respect, integrity, leadership, and passion. We firm believers that nothing beats a hard day’s work and time in the saddle, followed up by fellowship and the reading of God’s Word.
At Cavvietta Quarter Horse & Cattle Company, we promise to give the best east coast ranch experience you could imagine. From an early-morning wake-up to feed the cavvy and eat breakfast over the fire, to putting in hours on the ranch and learning our way of life, to an afternoon in the saddle learning new and exciting skills with your equine partner, and finishing up with a finish pole. And don’t forget lunch and dinner back at the camp!
Individuals who have their own mounts are encouraged to bring them in order to strengthen their partnership through better communication, but we are happy to provide a horse from our cavvy!
