Shelby’s Festive Fun Ranch Adventures

At Shelby’s Ranch we love adding a festive seasonal touch to our Ranch’s family activities.

Frightfully Fun Halloween at Shelby’s Ranch

We are especially proud of our fantastic decor that transforms our beloved Ranch into a Halloween Haunting Scene during the month of October, but we are even prouder of our exclusive attraction, seen only at Shelby’s Ranch:

Come one, come all: treat yourself to the Frightfully Fun Haunted Halloween Wagon Ride at Shelby Ranch! Featuring live actors, goofy ghosts, zealously silly zombies and... the Headless Horseman himself! Thrilling Halloween fun for the whole family, including young wagon riders!

Enchanting Christmas at Shelby’s Ranch

It is the season for enchantment and magic to envelop you and your family during your Ranch adventures!

Enjoy our wagon and sleigh rides through the white wintry grounds of our ranch - complete with sleigh bells and Christmas carols, of course! Sit back and relax in our bright-red sleigh, admiring the snow-dusted trees, and breathing in the crisp countryside air.

Experience fabulously fun family ranch adventures with pony rides a-plenty, and interacting with our Christmassy cute Petting Farm animals, without forgetting to take on your dexterity Christmas challenge with Big Bruce, our Mechanical Bull!

Go on a peaceful and enchanting 1.5 hour horseback ride with your family across our grounds and explore the forest trails for a purely blissful and magical Christmas family excursion! No prior riding experience is needed, Christmas Riders of all levels are welcome!

After all that wild Christmas Ranch fun and adventure, put your feet up, indulge in some hot chocolate or hot apple cider and treats while you enjoy the warmth emanating from a roaring Christmas bonfire. Ho ho ho, Happy Holidays!
