Following the success of its Halloween Family Day, Lazee G Ranch shifted gears to offer a festive event for the young, and young at heart, on Sunday.

The Country Christmas at Lazee G Ranch event combined the festive flair of the holiday season with the beauty of horses, giving families plenty to see and do throughout the 25-acre farm.

Despite the rain on Sunday, attendees were able to tour the barn, pet some of the farm animals, take a pony ride, and watch the members of the Rising Stars Drill Team put on Christmas-themed riding demonstrations inside the indoor riding arena. This included the horses and riders being dressed in festive gear and riding to holiday-themed music.

The riders also hosted demonstrations, showcasing their knowledge of horseback riding.

No stranger to caring for animals, Santa and Mrs. Claus were eager to be onsite at the farm to greet the many good little boys and girls at the event and listen to their Christmas wishes. Eventgoers also had the opportunity to participate in a candy cane hunt, watch puppeteers perform, listen in on a holiday storyteller, and enjoy cookies and a drink.

Brenda Gagnon, owner and operator of Lazee G Ranch, noted Sunday’s event was aimed to help usher in the holiday season, while giving area families something fun to do. She was pleased with the turnout of many who came out to the farm to enjoy the festivities, despite the cold, rainy weather.

Looking ahead, Lazee G Ranch will host a Lantern Walk in January to help families get rid of the winter blues.
