Intermediate to Advanced Wranglers
Our older kids will be learning more advances skills: ranch management, riding horses while gathering cattle, rodeo activities including cattle sorting and team penning, doctoring both horses and cattle, how to manage a cow herd (ear tag, brand and vaccinate), how to care for goats and sheep (feeding, trimming hooves, vaccinating, and worming), the general basics of land management and rotational grazing, how to manage fencing and water across the whole ranch, as well as the basics of how hay is grown and harvested. The end goal is for our Junior Wranglers to have the skills necessary to get real jobs working with animals.
Wranglers who are just beginning
The younger kids will be learning similar things as described above but activities and general concepts will be tailored to their age level. The experience will be hands-on and full participation.
Councilors in Training
We will be developing advanced teaching lessons in older kids that parallels the Junior Wrangler Camp. Wranglers in this category should be nearing the end of high school, very responsible, hard-working, and patient.
Bar SZ Intern Program
Every summer we invite about 4 adult wranglers to intern on the ranch. We would love for our Junior Wrangler Camp and CIT Program to be a feeder for this exciting summer opportunity.
We are looking for mature adults who are interested in learning about real life on a ranch. The Bar SZ provides a well-rounded experience which includes: learning how to teach riding lessons, learning how to train horses, many aspects of ranch management, and most importantly...personal growth.
If you think this is the opportunity for you, we'd love to hear from you.
