We recently spent a long weekend at The Sugar & Spice Ranch in Bandera. It was so worth the time getting to know our assigned horses, grooming, feeding, and getting a feel for what it's really like to own a horse. Plus understanding their personalities! One of the surprising things....fabulous home-cooked food. Leigh is a master at creating yummy breakfast,... More

As things went, this wonderful ranch found us unexpectedly through a google search and I am so thankful that it did. The mother/daughter week fell in line perfectly with my ideal week of travel. I am a very busy, single mother with a business - this was my first vacation with my daughter in over 5 years, and I was... More

My daughter and I recently stayed here and had an amazing time getting to know the wonderful,loving family that runs this ranch!!The love they have for horses and bringing families(mothers and daughters) together left my heart with wanting more. I can say that it will not be our last trip to this amazing place where you are assigned a horse... More

I had not experienced the state of Texas before and deliberately choose the Sugar and Spice Ranch in order to spend spring break with my two boys, age 11 and 13, in “Cowboy-country”, yet provided with ample, habitual daily comforts. We left with an amazing bonding experience, fond memories and are excited about being Wyoming-bound. Mrs Leigh’s horse tack lessons... More

I took my 10 year old daughter and 7 year old son to Sugar & Spice Ranch. When we arrived at the ranch I was a little nervous wondering if there was enough for us to do. But keep in mind. we had already been in San Antonio for 8 days, in 5 star hotels, doing all the "tourist' stuff.... More

My daughter and I have stayed at The S & S in Texas 2 times and are returning again this summer. Miss Leigh is an amazing host and always extremely gracious. Her patience with younger children is never ending and she knows her stuff. I read a couple of reviews on here and can't for the life of me believe... More

Although this was not my optimal vacation, my daughter (who loves horses - age 12) had a blast. Don't expect hotel - think out of the box. You sleep with about 10 other kids/mothers in a rustic bunk house and share one bathroom. The mother and daughters reside next to the guest bunk house and meals are served there. Walls... More

I'v been and am going back again in just a few weeks and than going to Wyoming this years with them as well. Mrs Leigh and her Girls are so awesome. Their Ranch is well kept and they have a POOL. The Bunk house has bunk beds and makes you feel like a kid again at summer camp. The kids... More

My two daughters (ages 6 and 8) and I just returned from a lovely three-day weekend with Miss Leigh and her family. We live in Austin, so it was an easy drive for us over to Bandera. Sugar and Spice is not an Old West theme park, or a dude ranch/spa resort where you "mosey on down to the corral"... More

I'm not much of a horse person, but my wife and daughter have been to Sugar and Spice several times and absolute love it. So, they took me over Labor Day weekend and now I'm a fan too. It's a rustic experience to be sure, but comfortable and homey. The owner Leigh and her daughters really made me feel like... More
