Monday we had our VERY FIRST zoo meet up!
It was so awesome to chat with friends and stroll around our wonderful (clean) zoo! I have to say that I’m impressed by the attention to detail at our fine zoo. The splash pads were well attended and the preparations were clearly underway for the new monkey habitat AND for the cuddly kualas (who will be here soon!)
As a life-long horse-lover, I was excited to learn more about the equine facility and programs! I had no idea there was so much available to horse-lovers! The 32-stall horse barn and a 90-foot by 138-foot covered riding arena are visible from the walking path. HOWEVER, I was excited to learn about the horse care and riding program available. There is a “Horse Hands” program for children 7 and up. AND equally exciting, there is a four week Junior Horse Hands program for kiddos 3-6. Kids get to learn (through hands-on experience) about the basic needs of a horse, grooming, stable chores, an introduction to riding etc!
To add to all of our fun, our sweet sponsor Bare Skin towels provided some awesome towels to giveaway to two lucky mommies! The towels are PERFECT for Arizona and our need to cool off with water. They are super compact, so if you are like me, you don’t have to lug around a bulky beach towel (or two or three depending on how many kids are in tow). AND you can just ring them out when you are done so you don’t have to drag a sopping wet towel into your car making everything else, including your dry kids wet once again.
