We will meet at Manchester Nature Preserve in Encinitas. The guests will meet Buttercup and Cotton Candy, our angora goats, feed them treats and then take turns holding the leashes as we walk along the nature preserve trails. This is a scenic hike through the California Sage Brush, with wild flowers (seasonal). While we're walking you can learn about the history of the angora goat and goat keeping in general, ask questions or simply enjoy their sweet personalities as we walk (or run) along the trail.
Contrary to goat yoga this activity is suitable for all ages and does not require special athletic skills. We will end the walk with a mohair spinning demonstration and enjoy a cold sparkling water.

Please note: Goat walking is slightly different from dog walking. Goats like to browse, meaning they regularly stop to nibble on vegetation. This makes the walk fun for them and mimics their natural behavior. Also, just like us humans, there are days when they feel energized and move at a fast pace (usually during cooler weather) and other days when they feel more lazy and want to stop for snacks more often. I do not want or expect my animals to perform like circus animals, instead I adapt to their energy level. For that reason the hiking times and distances do vary.

Also, we can accommodate larger groups on request.

I am a life long animal lover. As a holistic health practitioner I have been studying the healing powers of animals, especially prey animals like horses and goats, on humans that suffer from PTSD, autism and depression. Spending time in the presence of these animals is soothing, fun and brings out the playful curious side in people. After seeing the responses of random strangers on the beach (like adults running after us squealing with excitement) every time we take Butters and Candy (our angora goats) for a walk, I thought it would be nice to share this experience with others.

Her skal du være

We will be hiking through California native plants at Manchester Preserve in Encinitas.
Depending on skill level we can either take the valley trail (easy) or hike up to the ridge with views of the local mountains (moderate).
The Beach Walk is available after Labor Day due to overcrowded beaches and lack of parking during the summer. This hike is tide dependent because the beach we are allowed to walk on is only accessible during low tide.

This turned out to be the best thing I did on my entire SD trip (and I used ti live there so know the region pretty well). Simone and her daughter are phenomenal hosts. The location and goats were so magical. I left feeling like a little piece of my soul was healed that I didn't know what broken. Incredible experience, thank you Simone!

This sunset hike with goats was such a fun experience!! I took my 10-year-old daughter with me and she enjoyed it and was an easy hike for her. The goats, Candy and Butters were so sweet and cute. But i was surprised how strong and fast they were. I loved the work out they gave me while running with them! Our host Simone taught us so much about the goats as well as the wild flowers and geographic location. This is one in a lifetime experience I recommend to all animal lovers.

Simone has a real passion for her goats! The sunset hike was very unique. It's not too often you get the opportunity to walk goats on a leash! The area was beautiful and serene. If you are looking for a different experience, this is definitely worth a try.

We had a lovely time with Simone, her daughter, and two goats, Buttercup and Cotton Candy!! The animals were well cared for and so much fun to walk. Simone was so friendly, enthusiastic, and we enjoyed chatting with her. The hike was GORGEOUS, uncrowded, and took the perfect amount of time. I would 100% recommend this activity for anyone who likes animals and the outdoors.

Simone was very friendly from the start, answered many questions, knew the area well. I enjoyed this leisurely hike with the goats, in a nature reserve with different terrain options.
