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

I have made three trips to the Bandera Ranch and one visit to Wyoming. My daughter and I stayed for a summer camp and a three day weekend. Then we decided it was time to make it a family affair and included Dad in our last trip. It's isn't a spa destination with horses to look it at. This is... More

Horrible experience. We left two days early and were too intimidated to even tell the owner, Leigh, about how terribly we felt. My daughter summed it up with "Mommy, I was crying because of the lady, not because of the horse." The family that runs the camp were screaming at each other, cursing and crying right on the other side... More

While we strive to satisfy all our clients we do occasionally have a guest that may not get the whole concept of what we do and how important it is to understand the way we do things. First of all, everyone is housed together so they interact in a camp environment, work as a community to understand the workings of... More

I was a guest of The Sugar & Spice Ranch this past August at their Wyoming location and it was a once in a lifetime experience. I was allowed to bring my own horse and ride the range with Miss Leigh and her staff. The hospitality and atmosphere was second to none and I would encourage anyone looking for a... More
