Absolutely loved it!!! Riding through the beautiful countryside and lake our wrangler Anthony was a great guide, friendly, professional and made the ride fun and enjoyable. Not your standard horse trail ride. I highly recommend this. :) Thanks again from Lauren

My son has been asking to ride horses, so I found this place online. It was a little difficult to find because there aren't great signs from the highway, but the staff was very helpful on the phone to guide us there for our little buckaroos excursion. My son had a great time brushing the horse, learning about Bo (spelling)... More

I just took my first trip to Austin. The trip was for work, but since I've never seen the city, I wanted to take an extra day for some exploring. I am an experienced rider and try to get on a horse in every city, state, country, continent I can. Most of the time, I understand that I will just... More

We had Jessica and she was great. Fun and interesting talk and information. I would recomend anyone in austin to go for this ride. They sure need a better description on how to get there though. A more detailed description. Apart from that 5 star!

Brought the family here for the 1.5 hour ride. Absolutely beautiful ranch with huge fields full if wildflowers and rivers. The guide was really nice and helpful. They should clear the low hanging branches off the trail however. Be prepared to duck and cover several times. I would recommend this place. I'll be back!

Texas trail rides has horses with outstanding personalities and behavior. TTR staff are not just people who help guide you in the right direction relating to horses but they become a friend and good company throughout the trail ride experience. The new Circle C ranch is absolutely a gorgeous amount of land. There is interesting wildlife, breathtaking views and relaxing... More
