About Us

Greetings and Welcome!

Giddy up ranch is owned by Marie Dickensen, who has been training and working with animals for over 45 years. She has spent her entire life gaining experience with all types of species of animals.

“I bought a pony named Sugar for my son in 1989. I hoped it would bring him all the joy I had while growing up around animals, which it did. Friends and neighbors would constantly ask if their children could ride the pony. Recognizing the demand, and realizing how much joy I could bring to children, I started my first pony ride and petting zoo business.

Our small family owned company has grown from one pony to more than one hundred animals since 1989. I feel having pony rides, camel rides and petting zoos at your event offers a wonderful opportunity and experience for children and adults who might never get to see up close the gentle beauty and wonder of these animals. I couldn’t be happier with a life that allows me to make families smile, while also spending time with the animals I love so much.

It would be a pleasure working with you. Thanks for taking the time to read my story.”

Marie Dickensen
