It is free to go into the ranch which is great. However, there was nobody around to provide direction or information on the horses. There was a building that looked like you would go in for information but it was locked. There were no hours on the door to state whether or not there were tours. We were there on... More

This is a quick stop off on the back roads of Solvang. This is truly free entertainment which is nice for a family on a budget vacation. There really is not much to do other than look at the mini horses from the gate, however, the horses are pretty curious and friendly and do get close. Make sure to bring... More

Nice drive to the Quicksilver Ranch, but I didn't actually go in. Great for kids to see the miniature horses.

We arrived about 20 minutes before the ranch opened and were greeted by these adorable miniature horses through the fence facing the roadside. They are very friendly and would walk up right to the fence, and a couple of them would even walk with you along the fence. It is absolutely amazing to watch my 14-month-old son interact with such...

This is a fun stop when out driving around the beautiful hills surrounding Solvang. Not really anything specific to do, but you can get up close to see the adorable miniature horses. And if you're lucky (like we were!), someone will have one out and walking around so you can pet it and ask questions. I'm sure kids would love... More

I always stop by Quicksilver Ranch when up in Solvang to get my Mini Horse fix. I was a little dis~appointed this time as there weren't to many horses. There were a few babies & a couple of mares & maybe one stallion. I don't know if they are down sizing or if they had sold a lot of their... More
