Borders public land for additional exploration of the countryside. Enjoyed the meals prepared by Peter and Dianne is a good instructor. Accommodations for horses in their barn are great. Thanks Dianne and... More

We decided we wanted to have a fun "escape from the city" before school started so I went to Tripadvisor and found Hill Country Equestrian Lodge with a 5 star rating! So, we rolled the dice and booked! We had no idea what to expect and from booking to checking out was based on personal customer service! You can not... More

I participated in a 4 day horse clinic in October 2014 -- glad I didn't come in August as was perfect weather -- would have been sweltering earlier in the summer! Had 2 incredible fellow students who inspired me in so many ways, and Peters' meals were too good to decline. The cabins are very comfortable and the lack of... More

We have now stayed in Hill Country Equestrian Lodge 4 times. We always had the pleasure to stay in the Rose Cabin. It is always nice and clean and it`s very special to us. At HCEL. the horses are well trained and Dianne is a very good instructor. Thanks to Dianne and Peter. We look forward to come back soon.... More

We had a fantastic trip to the Hill Country Equestrian Lodge! The cabins were perfect, very nice and clean, and everything needed! Each cabin had kitchen, living area, 2 bathrooms and 2 sleeping areas, fireplace. Front porch and fire pit with firewood! We had a group of six, took our horses (great barn to leave our horses in) and rode... More

I participated in the 4-day horsemanship clinic during the third week of September, and I can't say enough good things about the whole experience. As an on again-off again rider who had not had any formal instruction since I was a child, I signed up because I wanted to improve my riding and gain some concrete skills. The clinic consisted...

We just stayed here for five nights and had a great, relaxing time. The cabins are basic, but clean, large, and with everything you need - we had a good sized bedroom, a large pleasant sunroom and kitchenette. Amenities include a nice clean pool and hot tub, but not much else - it's a ranch. Other than horseback riding, our... More

We had a wonderful holiday, with one of our own horses and also rode one of the ranch's horses. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the riding lessons and the trail rides in a beautiful surrounding. We already have made plans to return.

You sit on your porch and watch the sun come up - and all you can hear is the sound of the cicada. No cars. No planes. Maybe an early bird - but nothing else. Then you go inside your fondly arranged cabin and prepare a nice breakfast. While drinking your cup of coffee you plan the coming day -... More

From the other side of the Atlantic it was not so easy to google out a location, where our family - consisting of non-riders and experienced riders - would find their place and fun. With HCEL we found exactly the right place for us! A great landscape, the beautiful location in the valley, a riding terrain in the state park... More
