It is not the Ritz..nor the Holiday Inn. Fort Valley Ranch offers basic accommodations and campsites for humans and horses. We loaded up our horses and headed to Fort Valley. The roads are a little tough to maneuver with a large trailer...and the directional signs are not good...but once there...all was good...except the weather. We had planned to ride three... More

Took our two 10 year old granddaughters there and loved everything about it. The trail was prefect, the horses were gentle, and the guides were wonderful! Highly recommend this for a fun activity the entire family will enjoy!

We had no issues finding the place. The sign is small, but the road sign is normal. We signed in and made one last pit stop in the outhouse. It has compost toilets (not sure what people are expecting once you drive those hills to get there) but it was clean. Paul was our guide. I was thrilled it was... More

My boyfriend treated me to an all-day trail ride for my birthday in November at Fort Valley ranch. We picked a day that ended up being particularly cold (even light flurries), but we made the best of it. The horses were great, and our guide (Dustin) was cheerful and knowledgeable, despite the cold! The pack lunch the ranch provided was... More

While visiting the DC area, we decided to take a drive to the countryside. This was by far one of my favorite things to visit and go do. We took a horseback trail ride which was very nice. I just wish we got to stay the whole weekend and take longer day rides. The shorter ride has a lot of... More

For my dads 70th bday I planned a weekend get away, and when our hot air balloon trip got canceled, it sent me scrambling for a good alternate adventure. I was pleased that Ft Valley Ranch was able to accomodate a party of 6 that same afternoon. The weather was perfect, the leaves were near "peak color" and it couldn't... More

Fort Valley Ranch was an awesome place. We did the half day ride and it was so much fun. Gale our guide was excellent. She had a lot of knowledge about the plants/trees along the trail, the flowers and the history of the trail. She taught us more about horses and she was very down to earth. It was an... More

We booked at the last moment for an afternoon trail ride at Fort Valley, and it proved to be a highlight of our holiday. Josh, our guide, was really encouraging to the three of us, including our 9 year old son who had never ridden before. The paperwork was all safety focused and riding helmets were available without additional charge.... More
