Reading through these reviews I can't believe no one writes about BUTCH the wrangler. Anyway, we booked a half a day for the 4 of us, as it turned out, we were the only 4 in the group WHICH WAS GREAT!!! We spent the day with our own personal cowboy BUTCH.... He was the nicest, friendliest, funniest person.... We had... More

Did a half day visit which included a trail ride, lasso lessons, dinner, haywagon ride to feed the cattle, campfire, etc. This was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had! 1st time riding a horse and I loved it. Staff was super, so kind and helpful! The owner, Larry, was a hoot !! Straight forward and down to... More

I definitely want to return to rancho cortez someday, myself and my family had a blast on our day trip, with two trail rides, great food, friendly staff, a spirited owner, and end of the day campfire. The wagon ride to feed the cattle was fun as well.

Hoarse ride up cliff was great fun, food was fabulous. If weather is chilly or raining not a lot to do so watch the forecast. Chris was a great guide and my children loved the experience. A must see.

With my husbands work schedule we could not stay over night but luckily we are only 1.5 hours away so we were able to spend the day there. Everyone was friendly from check in until we left after the campfire. We enjoyed the horseback riding and the beautiful views. We brought our (exchange student) son with us who had never... More

We stayed on the ranch doe three days with my teenage grand children and daughter and her husband. We had a great time . They were very helpful in getting us to do the trail rides. As I was a big chicken to ride the horses they even gave me some private lessons. The food was very good but you... More

We spent a day at Racho Cortez - what a fantastic day! Before we arrived we had a helpful mail conversation with Cheryl. Even when we had a logistic problem at the day we arrived Cheryl was very helpful. During the day we experienced a fine balance between getting enough time for the riding, rope exercise, feeding the longhorns and... More

We booked a half day trip here for a birthday celebration. We wanted to do some horseback riding and relaxation. Rancho Cortez definitely delivered pretty well, but we did not get to use all of the amenities. There was a bit of a lack of organization for those shoe wanted a tighter schedule of activities. Some of the facilities were... More

First, I want to start my review by saying the staff were friendly but at times appeared either overworked or inexperienced. I have riden horses at various times for over 40 years including two stays for a week each at ranches on the East coast and Northwest. Horseback experience- I had never before been on a ride where they didn't... More

As we did not have the time in our itinerary to stay on a dude ranch overnight, we booked a day at the Rancho Cortez in Bandera - and we had a marvellous time. On arrival we were swept off on our first trail ride. Not being experienced horse riders, the wranglers picked us the most appropriate horse -and the... More
