Just spent a couple of nights with Jacklyn at her ranch and rescue centre. Managed to fit in three trail rides all different, interesting and most of all very enjoyable. If you are a first time horse back rider or experienced Jacklyn has a horse to suit. She is a fantastic guide and if you want to know anything relating... More

My daughter and I rode with Jaclyn and her granddaughter along gentle beautiful horse trails. We really appreciated Jaclyn's natural approach to horse training. The horses were gentle and extremely well behaved. Jaclyn was a knowledgable guide. She pointed out the names of local flora. We had a fantastic experience. Highly recommended.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our ride in the desert. We had wonderful horses, wonderful instruction and beautiful scenery! My husband and I are not experienced riders only riding at a state park on occasion and our children had never ridden before. I could not have asked for a more enjoyable first experience for my children. Thank you Jacklyn for a... More

We found Jacklyns website and booked our ride already while in Europe. Throughout the process, Jacklyn was very helpful and communicative, even when our plans had to change. We came for a 2 hour morning ride and loved every minute. I have ridden for many years in Europe but like the American way, and my partner rode in his youth... More

My afternoon desert ride with Jacklyn was a gift. Her horses are lovely and loved. Her two white shepherds were endlessly entertaining and clearly devoted. The area is divine - peaceful and good for the soul. I've been on many trail rides - but this one was so much more...loved it!

If you don't mind paying top dollar for the privilege of exercising Jacklyn's broken-down "rescue" horses, or the requirement to use portable plastic steps to get yourself into the saddle, this may be the outfit for you. It's totally for beginners with no eye for a sound horse, or the difference between groomed and un-groomed. Not for pre-teen beginners, though.... More

After a couple of nights at the 29 Palms Inn we wanted to treat our nine year old daughter to a little horseback riding. On a total whim we called up Jacklyn at Crazy Horse Ranch and got a trail ride and a room. So glad we did! Jacklyn made us right at home, showing us around the ranch, giving... More

We had a great trail ride from the Crazy Horse. Jacklyn was very patient with us and obviously is passionate about her horses and informing her customers about natural horsemanship. She spent a lot of time with us before the ride explaining what we had to do to work with the horses so we all (especially the horses) could enjoy... More

Our family comes to the Palm Springs area a couple of times each year. We have long talked about going horseback riding in the region and finally found the time today to do it. After looking into the various options, we decided on Crazy Horse Ranch because we were intrigued by the philosophy of the owner, Jacklyn, who takes a... More
