The extra charge is per person for the extra horse, breakfast, linens, rollaway/cot, bait, and petting farm feed. Guest cabin rates are also based on double occupancy, but extra person charges are lower since guest cabin rates don't include breakfast.

A parent or guardian must accompany small children in the arena.
