THE BRAIDED CROP RANCH
Deep in the heart of Ontario's touristy Muskoka region sits a Ranch unlike any you've ever seen.
The Braided Crop Ranch (and its sister ranch, The Pretty Pony Palace) cater to men and women who believe that kink is an expression of deeply held needs and desires. This special ranch functions as a fully immersive experience for men who like to pretend to be ponies and for the people who enjoy helping them.
BCR 1 - STABLE HAND
The Braided Crop Ranch is looking for stable hands.
But this is no ordinary horse ranch. The Braided Crop Ranch caters to men with a certain interest. An interest involving harnesses, tails and trainers.
Managed and expertly run by registered psychologist, Adam Marsland, the Ranch is a safe place for the expression of sex positive and kink positive needs and fantasies.
Jensen Moriarty is desperate for a job.
He can handle horses. In fact, he’s a pro at it.
Too bad the BCR doesn’t deal with real horses. But they do have “ponies”.
If Jensen can wrap his head around what the BCR actually stands for, he may have the opportunity to expand his resumé, and experience something completely unexpected in the process.

BCR 2 - PONYBOY
Owen Lipke is looking for adventure. When he hears about a ranch in the Muskokas catering to kinky men who don’t want to settle for backroom amateurs, he signs up in a second.
At the Braided Crop Ranch, Owen finds what he’s looking for: A sex positive space with safety protocols and Doms (trainers) who know their business. And a stable full of well-behaved ponyboys to prove it.
Owen thinks his trainer, Kamal, is hot as hell but finds being a ponyboy isn’t as intuitive as he expected. As he struggles to learn the basics of equine pet play under the firm hand of his trainer he finds himself falling for the older, experienced, man.
And perhaps Kamal is developing a thing for the young, adventurous newcomer. But there are rules at the ranch about fraternizing with staff. And Owen wonders if it’s wise to fall in love with the pragmatic trainer who unravels him layer by layer to expose his deepest needs and most secret proclivities.
But perhaps wisdom is overrated. And maybe the rewards of adventure are only achieved when you abandon caution and take a huge leap of faith.
BCR 3 - GYMKHANA
Adam Marsland has a plan.
He’s been managing the Braided Crop Ranch for six years and wants to bring everybody he can find back for a week of games, competition and celebration.
Henry Swift was a ponyboy at the BCR during its very first year. He learned to trot, pull a cart and submit to his trainer. He’s never quite left the experience behind and is excited to receive Adam’s invitation to return.
But it’s not the only the Ranch and its sex-positive atmosphere pulling Henry back to the seclusion of the Muskoka wilderness.
Henry’s always had a thing for sedate, contemplative Daddy types, and his memories of Adam Marsland have been haunting him for years. Adam’s still at the Ranch, and now Henry can go back and find out if the older man has any remnant feelings for him.
But the Gymkhana Adam’s planning means the return of a plethora of ponyboys and trainers and Henry wonders if he will have competition to win the heart of the accomplished ranch Manager.
