Carousel Ranch is proud to present a Ladies Day At The Ranch “Cowgirls & Crystals,” which will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 2 p.m. until dusk. Presenting Sponsor for this event is Comfort Keepers In-Home Care. Proceeds will be used to fund programs for therapy on horseback for disabled children and adults. This event will be held outdoors in the Western Town at the ranch located at 34289 Rocking Horse Road, Santa Clarita, Ca. Included in the day’s upscale cowgirl fun is a gourmet BBQ from Salt Creek Grille Catering, including gourmet s’mores and a special brew of Cowgirl Punch created especially for Carousel Ranch by Tamra Levine, Director of Catering. “Dude Ranches are not just for dudes anymore” states Shelley Hann, Event Chair. “Put on your rhinestones and jeans, and join us for an afternoon of BBQ, shopping, line dancing, and much, much more. This experience is sure to bring out the cowgirl in all of us!”
Guests will also enjoy a unique shopping experience of one-of-a-kind boutiques, a no-host wine bar, and an opportunity for an “on horse” riding experience if you so choose, or just cheer on your favorite rider. After the live auction, you can also learn to “rope” from experienced cowboys and have fun line dancing and learning the Texas Two Step from professional dancers.
Proceeds from Cowgirls & Crystals will be used to fund the many special programs that Carousel Ranch offers. “As times continue to be hard for everyone, charities included, events like this make such a difference in our basic operations. Our board members are dedicated to finding ways to make sure that every child continues to be served - and events like Cowgirls & Crystals is a perfect example of that,” said Denise Tomey, Executive Director for Carousel Ranch. “We are so excited about this new signature event. What is really special about this event, is that guests will actually be able to come out and see the ranch! It also gives us the opportunity to reach out to new friends and supporters - such as Comfort Keeper’s In-Home Care, who has joined us as our Presenting Sponsor.”
Therapeutic riding helps achieve improved coordination, muscle strength, joint mobility, perceptual skills, self-confidence and so much more. Moreover, each step a horse takes requires Carousel Ranch riders to use their muscles to maintain balance and challenges their minds. Almost every disabled person can benefit from therapeutic riding. Riders at Carousel Ranch come with a wide range of special needs including cerebral palsy, developmental delay, Down syndrome, autism, brain injury, stroke, learning disabilities, and schizophrenia.
Carousel Ranch is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing equestrian therapy and recreational activities for children with disabilities, creating a unique and individualized program to meet each child’s specific needs and goals. Utilizing a combination of vaulting, gymnastics on a moving horse, and therapeutic riding (both English and Western), we strive to create an atmosphere where every child can and will succeed… a place where therapy is disguised as fun.
