After searching around for a place to take a nice trail ride not far from Saratoga I found this ranch. Gave them a call and left a message and received a prompt call back. They were very friendly and kind giving me all the information that I needed so decided to take the hour long car ride through the rain.... More

We took a ride up to Circle B, about 50 minutes north of Saratoga, last Weekend. The Weather was a bit nippy but the sun came in and out and we got some fresh air! The horses are well behaved and everyone at the ranch is helpful and takes safety seriously! We enjoyed a great trail ride and some delicious... More

I wish I had read the reviews before I went. As we were getting ready to set out on the trail my horse wanted water from a bucket that had nothing but ice in it...I was told to back him away from the bucket, I did as requested. All was well, off we went for a nice ride with a... More

The sleigh ride at Circle B Ranch was incredible! It was so nice to be able to go on a couples ride versus going as a large group...this was a huge bonus in my book. The horses were absolutely beautiful and the sleigh bells on their harness really added to the "winter wonderland setting". The owner, Chris, was very kind... More

We went to the ranch during the summer and went horse back riding we had such a wonderful time that I couldnt wait to go back in the winter for a sleigh ride. I loved this place because it is family owned and the people who work there are really sweet and I felt totally safe and comfortable. The sleigh... More

Visited the ranch with members of my family in October and it was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the wagon ride and I am excited about returning when there is snow on the ground for a sleigh ride. Chris and Nancy were amazing hosts and they made the entire group feel at home. Thank you for the wonderful memories.

By far this was the best trail ride I have ever experienced! The location is amazing, the staff is jovial, welcoming, and knowledgeable, and the scenery is spectacular. Our tour guides Chris and Nancy were so welcoming, Chris shared so many stories with us about growing up on the ranch, and was eager to answer all of our questions. An... More

After reading about this place I was very excited to book a private ride for two, after calling and speaking to who I think is the owner for a reservation I quickly was turned off by this business. He was extremely rude on the phone and made me feel like he was doing ME as favor by making a reservation.... More

Sorry you decided not to ride as you missed a very good ride. As you can see from other reviews, people have a good ride here. Let's not forget who was rude to whom especially when you call so late at night and was quite demanding. You can't always have what you want when you want it, but we try... More

We did the 1 hour trail ride and loved it. It was the first day of the season that they were open and they had a large school group before us. Even after a long day Joe our guide was more than happy to take us out and do things at our pace. This was my first time riding and... More
