My family went to the Rocking Horse Ranch from August 13-18. We wanted something close by but far enough away that we did not feel like we were still in the Connecticut area. I had heard wonderful things about it so we finally tried it. I am an extremely detail oriented clean person but can also be laid back if... More

My boys (7 and 10) absolutely loved this place. There is so much to do that we didn't get to everything in our 5 day trip and they are already talking about going back. My son was diagnosed with a food allergy to fish after we had booked this trip and I was nervous about the meals but Chef Paul... More

EVERY staff member was OUTSTANDING and so accommodating to every member of our family! My son, who is special needs, had his first experience with horses; and the wranglers were TERRIFIC!!!

We took 3 generations to "the ranch" for 4 nights, 5 days. We ranged in age from 5 to 72 and everyone had a great time. The staff, the facilities, the activities were all top notch. The most unbelievable part was the food. Having read other reviews, I was a litle leery about the food but it was fabulous. They... More

I stayed for 3 days in early August with my kids (7 & 8) and my mom. It was our 3rd visit in the past 4 years (I previously reviewed in Aug. 2011 when I loved everything but the food and the rooms). It was our first visit since 2012, and we were happy to find some important improvements. -... More
