My family of 4 loved this experience. Kathleen and her horses were so sweet, my youngest daughter who is 11 was terrified to ride the horse by herself since she has never done this before and Kathleen walked the horse while my daughter rode it. My other daughter who is 13 has always wanted to go horseback riding, so this... More

Kathleen set up a ride for my son and I in the Santa Ysabel Wilderness Preserve that was absolutely stunning. The horses were perfect, we enjoyed getting to know Kathleen and most of all, we had a fantastic time enjoying the natural beauty around us.

To sum up the experience we had on a late December afternoon, safe and relaxing! Kathleen was welcoming even though we arrived late afternoon, and selected two very gentle and friendly horses for us. She came with us and answered all our questions with great background on the ranch and the local area. She clearly loves what she does, and... More

We visited thr ranch back on 11/9 when we stayed @Wikiup B&B . Kathleen and the rest of the staff were VERY friendly. We had to wait a little around thr ranch for the next ride. But we got to look around and meet the horses. We learned that all the horses there are rescued. Each horse has its story... More

This was my first horeback riding experience and Kathleen could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. The horses are all very friendly and the ride through the Julian scenery was beautiful. We even saw a deer and some... More

Our hostess, Kathleen, was fabulous in selecting the horses for my family-- all three of us are at different levels-- and then taking us on a beautiful ride through the Kenner Ranch. She was knowledgeable about the area, thoughtful about our different riding abilities and overall, a great person to spend a morning with. If you want a fun and... More
