Cowboy Christmas has been so sweet and will continue next weekend. Ride the excitement as you take on the challenge of bull riding, feel the adrenaline, and experience the thrill of the Wild West. But that's not allβ€”Santa's trading in his sleigh for a cowboy hat, ready to spread holiday cheer in true western style.

Imagine catching a glimpse of the Grinch, that mischievous holiday character, wandering through the festive atmosphere. Will he steal Christmas or join in the merriment? You'll have to be there to find out!

For those who prefer the gentler side of the season, visit the little animals at the petting zooβ€”they're just as excited for Christmas as you are. And don't miss the craft corner, where you can create your own western-inspired ornaments and decorations to add a touch of cowboy flair to your holiday festivities.

In Santa Ynez, Christmas isn't just a holiday; it's a boots-and-spurs celebration that combines the magic of the season with the spirit of the Wild West. So dust off your cowboy boots, round up your loved ones, and make it a Cowboy Christmas to remember! πŸŽ„πŸ€

A Cowboy Christmas shares the magic of the season with children through animals and old-fashioned fun! Here on the farm, we encourage kids to interact with animals, get a little dirty, sip hot cocoa, and experience the joy of the season with unique holiday experiences.

"If you are in the process of making your holiday activity plans I encourage you to add A Cowboy Christmas 2023 to your list. My daughter (now 9) thoroughly enjoyed last year and was super excited to go this Friday. That she is a tad horse crazy doesn’t hurt πŸ€£πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
She did all of the activities at least once. I had to bribe her to get on the bucking bull with a face paint by her favorite Ms Kristen but she begged to go on it again before we left, definitely a hit and great fun for adults and kids.
Between the pony decorating/petting zoo area, ornament decorating stations, tipsy ornament challenge, daring elf adventure, hay bale tower (surprise guest living inside) with tunnels, bull riding, steer roping, even an area for the littles you can keep your family entertained and create some lasting memories.
They moved the drink station to the Mercantile when you first walk in and have tables and chairs to chill or warm up around the fire pits. Make sure to bring your jackets as well!
Beware the photo bombing grinch πŸ€ͺ"
