I'm giving it a 4 because the services are limited. I would give it a 5 as to the horses. A beautiful setting on a very nice country road. Among vineyards and roadside lined with well groomed roses. Green fields and white fences, and the little Miniature Horses are beautiful. Fun to watch them play, and interact with each other.... More

We enjoyed seeing and photographing the little horses. This was a free attraction but no one was in sight. Too bad they don't charge and offer a narrative and maybe pony cart rides for little children. We enjoyed seeing them but don't expect too much

This isn't an "attraction" as much as a generous view into raising miniature horses. There are plenty to look at and depending on the season there are babies, pregnant mares and studs rearing to go! You may not be able to get too close if the horses are shy - they are animals for crying out loud - but bring... More

Seeing these wonderful miniature horses at the Quicksilver Ranch very close to Solvang was a highlight for my wife and I. The ranch has a modern barn that we walked through. There were no horses inside since the horses were all outside in various fenced off areas for viewing. This barn was the cleanest I have ever seen. You could... More

We stopped by this place to see the miniature horses because my daughter is crazy about horses. The Good: No fee to see the horses, can walk around freely to see them, we even saw a baby miniature horse with its mommy. The Bad: There is no one there on the ranch to greet you, not sure if they offer... More

I was super excited and all geared up to come here after I saw such high ratings. Well, we drove there and it was totally weird and boring. It's like you're just at someone's house looking at their yard! The horses are cute, but they are super far away. Maybe it's because we're from LA, or we're capitalists, but there... More

We stopped by this ranch on our way to Rideau Winery (which is actually right accross the road), just to give our 9yo kid something to do (in exchange for his patience in the winery). It was really cool to watch the miniature horses; they are friendly and walked up to the fence so my son could touch them and... More

The ranch is located only 5 minutes from town. We were able to roam around and see the beautiful miniature horses. Two came up to us and allowed us to pet them. They were so adorable. Kids would love this, adults too! It is free, but you can give donations. We really enjoyed it. Nice diversion from shopping.

The miniature horse ranch was different. There were 20 or so little horses to see and some will come over to the fence so you can pet them. This is a pretty ranch, very close to the local towns. We did this ranch and the lavender farm in the same morning. Each took about 15 minutes. Then it was on... More
