My daughter gets lessons here weekly and recently went on a trail ride with friends. This is a beautiful, working ranch run by experienced ranchers. The cowgirl in charge, Sam, is a rodeo winning barrel racer in addition to running the ranch and she more than knows her way around horses. She will put you at ease and entertain you... More

We took our kids (9, 12, 15) for their first horseback riding experience. What a treat!!! The people here are amazing! Anthony and Amy were our guides. Sam assisted in getting us set up for the trail ride. The kids were given basic directions and off we went for a 1 1/2 hour trail ride. Our 15 year old struggled... More

If you are looking for a relaxing ride on well cared for horses this is the place to be. We had a wonderful time last week on one of the hottest days in early July. We were running a few minutes late and called ahead to let them know and they waited for us. I was a bit nervous as... More

My friends and I had a fantastic horseback riding experience. Sam and Anthony were great guides!!! The 90 minute ride through the countryside was beautiful. The horses were easy to ride. I rode a great horse made Mud. It was nice to ride by side by side, inside of forming a single line. I thank Sam for taking some great... More

This was my first time riding and it couldn't have been more perfect. We had great weather and Sam and Anthony were great guides. It is obvious that Sam takes pride in what she does and takes very good care of her horses. Thanks for a great afternoon for me and my sisters. The lemonade at the end was a... More

Farm was beautiful. Horses were super easy to ride and obviously very well cared for. The ride was exactly what we wanted for a group that included one or two a little nervous prior to the ride. And the day we went the weather couldn't have been nicer. We took a 90 minute ride and the time went by fast.... More

At least that's what my 7.5 year old daughter exclaimed several times while on the Rusty Spur Trail (2.5hr). While she and I have experience riding, this trail is great if you're new and just love the idea of a beautiful walk through an amazing ranch (creek crossing too). Sam, the owner is amazing and was friendly. Anthony, our trail... More

Our 90 minute trail ride was wonderful! The horses are beautiful and well trained and the owner and guides were friendly and helpful. The property and scenery are beautiful and make for a wonderful day on a ranch. A great activity for couples, friends, and families.

Took the family here for a trail ride. Kids are 12, 10, and 7. The first thing you will notice is the incredibly beautiful countryside...and it only gets better from there. Sam has an effervescent personality to say the least. She was a knowledgable and gracious host. Her staff farm hands were very friendly and enjoyable on the ride. The... More

A perfect fall day, we were thrilled to meet Sam Snead who owns and operates Wagon Wheel Ranch (along with her husband who manages the cattle side of the business). This is a top notch operation. She had the horses already saddled before we arrived and carefully thought out which one of her 19 horses to give each of us.... More
