If you're visiting, or live in, the Smith Mountain Lake or Franklin County, VA area, schedule a visit to Buksbari Ranch. Grandparents- this is a great thing to do with the grand kids and families are always welcome. Meet the horses, pet and groom, learn about feeding and care, and take a hand-led ride around the ring. No experience necessary. Toddlers - adults (up to 200 lbs.) may ride. I also offer original cowgirl poetry, western music, books, and equine & western-themed artwork for sale, and give music lessons.
