No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. -Winston Churchill
Of course, we totally agree with Mr. Churchill at Black Mountain Colorado Dude Ranch! So with the upcoming weekend’s festivities, we wanted to share a few places around the country that are doing the Easter egg hunt right, on horseback!
TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA
Saturday, April 7th at 3:00pm
The Saddle Up Riding Club, which is based in Pinellas Park, is sponsoring an Easter egg hunt on horseback. You literally get ponied up on horseback and look for eggs that are hidden in buckets on the club’s property at 6080 94th Ave. Children from 1 to 16 can take part, but we imagine the adults are keeping a close eye on the toddler equestrians. No reservations needed. Just go there and ride. Oh, and bring your own Easter basket. The hunt is on Saturday, April 7, from 3 to 6 p.m.
LITTLE BRITAN, ON
Friday, April 6th at 10:30am
The Valentia Equestrian Retraining Centre in Little Britan is holding the first annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Farm, in which all proceeds go to their Horse Rescue. They will be holding a pancake breakfast, Easter egg hunt, and pony rides for children all benefiting their 32 horses at the facility.
LAGUNA WOODS, CA
Saturday, April 7th at 9:00am
The Laguna Woods Village Equestrian Center in southern California is hosting a horse parade for all residents and their families. They will also have an Easter egg hunt and pony rides for children and grand-kids. Residents should plan to come early to get a good parking spot. Call the Equestrian Center at (949) 597-4275 for more information.
If you know of any other equine egg activities this weekend, please share with us! We’d love to help spread the word!
