Labzara Ranch’s headmaster, Roseann Lobser, has been a riding instructor for more than 40 years, imparting the finer points of equestrian operation to students both young and old. Under Roseann’s watchful eye, students learn the proper form of riding in the Australian style; English style, which requires that riders keep both hands on the reins; or Western style, which uses only one hand so the other is free to prospect for gold. Also a certified art teacher, her summer camps invite kids 5 years old and up to meet the ranch's ten horses; ride them in parades; and work on painting, pottery, and other art projects once the day gets too hot for riding. The ranch also offers horse riding birthday parties for kids which includes an hour of riding, horse feeding, games, and a party space.
