Children’s Introduction to Horsemanship

This is an ideal option for families who would like to come out and see the horses, take photos and enjoy some grooming time and a short mounted time. Participants who come regularly will love the extended riding options and opportunity to get to know all of our horses and gear!

Come meet the horses, learn how to walk safely around them and enjoy a short pony ride.  Take photos, visit with the kittens and dogs, baby cow and lambs.  Baby horses?  You bet!  Enjoy your excursion to our ranch.

If you are interested in coming regularly your child’s ride time will increase up to the full length of the trail ride, as you and your child become comfortable with the horses, instructors and style of our rides.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BOOK A TIME SPOT WITH CURRENTLY BOOKED PERSONS ON THE HORSEMANSHIP OR TRAIL RIDE EXPERIENCE. Children’s intro classes that are not partnered up with a trail ride group or horsemanship group will be cancelled.

Weekly riders will love getting the chance to learn all about what we do, meeting all of our horses, and learning not just how to ride but also how to take care of the horses. This is a great option for locals. If you are in need of a scholarship, please submit your request to us at MaverickHorsebackRiding@gmail.com

OOOoo! This little guy gets it! Of all the fun things to do in Austin, horseback riding is probably the best. Of course, we are biased.
Enjoy all the animals on the farm during your visit with us. Friendly kittens, eager doggies, some silly lambs and our cow (a horse in training) are all here for you to enjoy. Don’t forget to say high to our miniature donkey, Beau.
Maverick’s makes a commitment to eco-friendly ranching practices. We love to explore nature with the littles, and we know that families will love to get outside and get active. Keep Austin fit and fun!
Here are Ewe Bouncy and Ewe Fluffy, two of our resident lambs. We are managing a mixed herd rotational grazing program at our Lockhart location, and these lambs are learning to stay with the horses to avoid becoming coyote food!
