For only $10 adults, $5 kids, every Saturday night under the lights, at 8pm in the summer, they actually have a Pro Rodeo in Vermont! Many people do not even know this! This is the second time we have been, and regularly recommend this to our friends. The whole atmosphere, the rodeo itself, the announcer, the crowd in attendance, it... More

My husband is a cowboy at heart. Last year I brought him to a rodeo in Lake Lucerne. This year I found Pond Hill Ranch Rodeo. The Pond Hill Rodeo was so much better. It was better for me (as a non-cowgirl) because it is in a beautiful location. It is a ranch on top of a hill, affording beautiful... More

Went horseback riding with a friend at Pond Hill Ranch. We took a gentle 1 hour ride through a pine forest to the top of a hill where we had fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. What a fantastic ride, and inexpensive too. I would recommend this place to everyone!

Enjoyed the riding events, but worried about the bulls and the calves in the bull-riding and calf roping events...but animal rights advocates would... More

A lot of old fashioned rodeo fun! It was a surprise to find such a neat place in the northeast. Well worth the trip out.

This is not an honorable business. On the surface it may seem so but you will not get what you pay for. Do not board your horse with these folks. They will tell you one thing and skimp on what your horse is getting and how it is treated while you are not there. Shameful way to treat horses and... More

What a fun and different experience. My husband and I stumbled on this and decided to give it a try. Our daughter rode horses for years so it was a great outing for us.
