Ranch Horse Versatility Events

Sonya Sokolow's MinMor Farms invites you to bring your horse and participate in the activities similar to those shown on the Internet and broadcast Community TV in Santa Cruz, California.   These fun events will give you and your horse an opportunity to use the training equipment shown on Sonya's local TV series The Urban Cowgirl Show, with the option of Sonya acting as teacher and facilitator.  You will ride your own horse.

These activities are scheduled in advance by mutual agreement.   Due to parking space, the maximum number that can be accommodated at one event is 6 horse trailers.   Activities start and end at mutually-agreed times.  In the case of rain on the scheduled day, the event will be rescheduled by mutual agreement.  Persons unable to attend the rescheduled date will be given full credit toward a future playday.  Riding helmets and proper equestrian footware are required of all riders.

The fee for an activity depends on whether you want to use your own helpers to do such things as pedaling the stationary cycle cow simulator or operating the switch on the motorized cow simulator.  Facilities rental is $15/hour. If MinMor Farms staff are used, the fee is as listed in the Shadrack Stables fee schedule (click here or go to www.thesokolows.com, click on Shadrack Stables and scroll down ) .   One rider may bring up to two horses.   Auditors (observers who don't ride) are not charged a fee.   If you plan to bring your horse trainer or horsemanship instructor, these professional people must in advance provide us with proof of professional liability insurance for this type of activity, such as the declarations page of their liability policy showing the coverages and effective dates.

To make a reservation, complete the form below and mail with your check made payable to "Sonya Sokolow" to
Sonya Sokolow, 301 Highview Ct., Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
