Speaking of horses, if you would like to spend some time with horses outside of the Mane Event, you definitely need to check out Heritage Ranch where you can take trail and carriage rides or try out some activities at the equestrian centre. The ranch also has gorgeous picnic grounds, a trout pond and several playgrounds, making it a great adventure for the family!
