We went to Rocking Horse Ranch in April during school break. We found the ranch very welcoming to the guests. This is not a five star resort, and makes no claim to be, but it is a really nice, fun, family friendly resort to spend a few days. The staff is very nice, and accommodating. Our room was nice, 2...

I'm not sure who originally wrote this thread, I read it and my family and I almost cancelled our reservations, since we were going with friends we decided to keep the reservations and think positive. When we checked in the young lady at the desk was very friendly, even gave our boys some wicky sticks to keep them busy while... More

We started out on a rocky note, trying to book the rooms for over 60 people. . ..it was quickly rectified by the manager Mike and all was well once again. We planned to stay with our farm families from Sunday to a Tuesday. MANY many children, most who knew how to ride and a lot of parents who didn't.... More

My family and I just returned from a mid week visit to the ranch, we had a nice time, although we both feel that the place, although great in many ways is also overpriced. I think two of the biggest disappointments for us were the food and the room. We stayed in the Oklahoma building. This was by far the... More

rockinghorseranch, Owner at Rocking Horse Ranch Resort, responded to this review

Happy to hear you enjoyed horseback riding and were pleased with the cleanliness of the Ranch and our staff. But I have to ask why you did not speak to a manager if you were so unhappy with your room and meals? We practically beg for feedback from guests during their stay. Our menu clearly states, “… if there is... More

From check-in to check-out there was non-stop action, activities, food and lots of warm friendly staff. This place is a must see! Every staff member says hello to you and all you have to do is look as though you have a question and someone walks up and engages you. Except for the evening meal service (plates quickly taken before... More

My family and I have been here twice and we're looking to come back this summer. We also visited Splashdown Beach which is great and owned by the RHR family. Would be great to include admission and service to and from Splashdown Beach in the stay.

My husband, six-year old daughter and I just vacationed at the RHR. We had a fantastic week! A gracious, professional staff along with the ranch's many amenities and activities all combined to make our stay very enjoyable! My daughter went horse-back riding, swimming, climbed the rock wall, made crafts, went on scavenger hunts and enjoyed the nightly shows. We all... More

We first visited this resort 25 years ago with their parents, it was even better now. The weather was not great but the indoor activities are many, a fun water park inside too which entertained the toddlers nonstop. The staff is professional, diligent and friendly.
