For more than 30 years, Giddy Up Ranch has provided animals to public and private schools across Southern California. It is a hands-on education, as students get the opportunity to experience critters they have only read about in storybooks or saw on television and motion pictures.
It is a mobile field trip, which allows us to bring animals to your campus, instead of the institutions incurring the high cost of transporting children to outside venues. With animals displayed onsite, it also ensures full student participation, instead of allowing only an allotted few.
Our services are provided according to need, meaning every school package may be different. While preschool and kindergarten programs are more suited for pony rides and petting zoos, middle and high schools have more interest in animal presentations that may fit their curriculum or larger camels for homecoming entrances and prom display.
Institutes of higher learning have asked us to provide small animals for stress release before final exams, as well as a larger variety of exotics for student film productions and themed festivals.
For more than 30 years, we have proudly educated those in urban areas, teaching the difference between sheep and goats, llamas and alpacas, and ducks and geese. In many cases, that is more than 3 decades of repeat visits to the same institution. And when you put that in perspective, it means a child from the past may now have children of their own. Those children now experience the same barnyard sights and sounds as their parents once did—-with it all provided by the same service.
At Giddy Up ranch, it is more than just establishing partnerships with schools throughout Southern California. We can proudly say that in those 30 years we have also established traditions.
