We had a sleigh ride and also dinner was so nice and the people were so down home. We enjoyed the place and would like to go back there and stay for a night or else for a weekend it was so awesome.

I have gone on sleigh rides here and it was out of this world! It was a Winter Wonderland and their big beautiful draft horses were decked out with bells and I felt like I was in a fairy tale! The owners are friendly and helpful, and enjoy serving their guests. Afterwards, we came back to their beautiful lodge and... More

I did not stand at the ranch, however went with family members for a 2 hour tail ride. Barb & Kim ensured we were feeling confident with sitting in the saddle & in control of our horses, before heading out. A beautiful fall day, breathtaking scenery. I would return again on my next trip to Sandpoint.

My wife and I spent 6 days in Idaho, at the Western Pleasure Ranch near Sandpoint. The ranch is a wonderful place for a number of reasons. We were looking for a ranch vacation to celebrate our anniversary. Some of my criteria was scenic, quiet, comfort, horseback riding and wildlife. Western Pleasure has it all and then some. A great...

Wonderful ranch in the woods. Cabins to stay in, horse back riding. A large lodge for family gathering. And the grounds are full of flowers, and lawns, and trees. So peaceful, and a wonderful staff. The winter sleigh rides are fun too!

The Western Pleasure Guest Ranch has partnered with Sandpoint Nordic Ski Club to groom Nordic ski trails on their property. There is a 4.5 mi gentle hill climb and a 2 mi mostly flat tour around a large field. Tracks had been set on the flat trail, but even without tracks the Big Hill trail is good for classic nordic...

This was our third visit to the ranch to hire a cutter horse sleigh ride in celebration of my wife's and I's 37th wedding anniversary. I will never tire of the the sleigh ride through just a small portion of their 1100 acre ranch and view the diverse forest that they beautifully steward. The lodge is made of huge logs... More

Our family has stayed at the Western Pleasure guest ranch in the past and this year we sent the kids for the horsemanship camp while Mom and Dad took off for some alone time. They had a great time. They had SO many experiences that they would never have the opportunity for where we live. We felt so comfortable and... More
