Celebrate Your Inner Cowgirl or Cowboy this summer at Berkshire HorseWorks Ranch!

Get ready for a fun, memorable, and, purposeful summer! Immerse yourself in Ranch Life 101, where every day presents a variety of different ranch experiences to participate in.

Who's it for:

Children & teens who love animals and the outdoors, don’t mind getting their hands dirty and want to feel more confident within themselves. Ages 4+ recommended. 

What to expect:

Each day is very active, moving from a variety of HorseCentric life skills and outdoor activities like hiking with horses, grooming, ranch chores, trail clearing, fence building, hay baling, horsemanship, arts and crafts, organic gardening, and any number of other activities required on a working ranch. Each animal at Berkshire HorseWorks has its own distinct personality and individuals will get to know all the different animals on the ranch.

Through daily experiential lessons facilitated by advanced certified EAGALA Equine specialists, individuals will not only learn to take care of the horses but also learn transferable skill sets that will help them in their everyday lives. The EAGALA modality — using horses in ground-based activities to help achieve personal development goals — is woven throughout everything that we do at Berkshire HorseWorks, Inc. 

Lessons are tailored to enhance self-esteem, personal growth and responsibility, listening and leadership skills, empowerment, resiliency, and much more. 

Sessions are kept small (max. 3) so that everyone gets individualized attention. Attendance here allows your child to be part of the Berkshire HorseWorks family and small group sizes allow us to customize activities based on individual and age-appropriate interests.

Berkshire HorseWorks is a safe and positive environment, where kids can still be kids, but have the opportunities to learn exciting new skills that will contribute to making your child more confident, self-sufficient, and better able to cope with new situations. This summer, whether on the ground or in the saddle, Ranch Life Skills at Berkshire HorseWorks will lay down roots of resilience in a fun-filled, activity-packed day at the ranch.
