Set away from the hustle and bustle of civilization, Black River caters to a wide variety of interests by offering a range of activities in addition to its excellent horseback riding program.
Black River Farm and Ranch is licensed by the State of Michigan, approved by the State Health Department, and Accredited by the American Camping Association.
A charming 160 year old ranch house centers all of the other buildings on the 360 acre farm and ranch just 80 miles north of Detroit and 20 miles north of Port Huron. The west boundary of the ranch is more than 2 miles of the Black River. A stream wandering through the valley, a five-acre lake, natural woodlands and the fields of the River Bend farm combine to create a perfect setting for girls out on a horseback ride.
The Black River Farm and Ranch opens its doors to a small group of girls and offers riding instruction and constant adult supervision but also the freedom to run and romp.
Imagine going to the pasture to bring in your horse, grooming and saddling him, riding him through sunlit fields and wooded trails, jumping on the trampolines and picnics at the Outback. You can try your hand at tennis, camp crafts, boating on Lake Lorely, bottle feeding a new calf, and/or baby goat. Also, wonderful farm food, swimming in the beautiful pool that is heated and shaped liked a horse head, girl talk in the bunk house after lights out and hikes along the wooded banks of the stream.
