My Husband and I wanted to spend a non-traditional Thanksgiving together, so we booked a long weekend at the Hill Counrty Equestrian Lodge. Everything about the experience exceeded our expectations. We booked the smaller of the two accomodation options, and it was a rustic, quaint, fully equipped cabin overlooking the Texas Hills! Our hosts had stocked the cabin with everything... More

My wife and I first stayed with Dianne and Peter in 2012. We tried to come back in 2013 but couldn't for personal reasons. This year we finally made it back and brought with us our two young children. We can't praise enough the thoughtful care with which Dianne treats both the horses and the property. The estate naturally fits... 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

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
