Adult Ranch Academy
Time & Location
About the Event
We are excited to be hosting the overnight Adult Only Cavvietta Ranch Academy! This is an educational weekend getaway for participants 18 years of age and older.
Participants should come ready to pitch a tent, hungry for cowboy grub, and with a desire to learn more about working cattle horseback. Participants must be comfortable walking, jogging, loping, stopping, and backing their horse. Weather permitting, we will ride Friday evening after camp is set, Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday Morning. Ranch Academy will be rain or shine so participants should pack raincoats/slickers in case of rain. During this Ranch Academy, we will spend time working cattle, getting the basics (or advancing your knowledge) of rope handling, and touching on other ranch subjects that participants would like to learn about. Three meals per day plus snacks will be provided, but participants must bring their own container for water! While we aren’t riding and working on ranch skills, there will be opportunities to take a dip in the pond, or pull out a fishing rod to see if you can get some bites. Feel free to bring your musical instruments, cards, or other items for evening activities.
What to bring:
A tent/sleeping bag/pillow/flashlight/ toiletries /appropriate sleepwear for current weather
Jeans and work pants
Long sleeve shirts to work in
A cowboy hat or ball cap that stays on your head in windy conditions
Boots with a heel that are narrow enough to fit in stirrups
Water bottle or canteen
Musical instruments if you play
Horse, grain, hay and tack if you have your own safe horse
Please DO NOT send your child with shorts and tee shirts as they are not appropriate for ranch work
We aim to bring the old working west to the people of North Carolina through Stockmanship, Hosrmanship, and Sportmsmanship. 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!
