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

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

When in San Antonio for a week, my travel partner and I wanted to experience a real working ranch. We researched many different ranches and decided Rancho Cortez was the best for us. Upon calling, booking, and check in, everyone was professional. Larry himself was checking us in, then teaching us to throw a lasso rope. Yes, I could not... More

We recently gave our grandchildren a choice of the Cortez Ranch or San Diego for a little trip while they were out of school. They chose the ranch. We stayed on the ranch, rode every day, swam, took the wagon ride(they got to drive the team), learned basic horsemanship, played ping pong, dominoes, and enjoyed the camp fire complete with... More
