“An Excellent Horseback Riding Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Whether you are a total greenhorn with horses (like myself) or an accomplished trail rider, you will have a truly great time at Kenner Ranch.

The owner, Kathleen Kenner, loves her job and it shows in the way she treats her horses and her customers. It is evident that the horses are well fed, exercised and cared for. She takes great care in questioning her customers, before the ride, to ascertain their horsemanship skill level, than selecting just the right horse for that person. And, take it from me, who has no riding skill level, she chose just the right horse for me, which made a huge difference during our two hour trail ride. Thank you Sunshine! On the other hand, my wife who is an accomplished rider, was given Gabe to ride, who tested her riding skills, in the best way.

The two hour ride over the grounds of the Ranch was just the right amount of time (although a one hour ride is available). The Ranch trails are beautiful, with oak trees, open meadows, a stream and some lovely hills to traverse.

If you are in the mood for horseback riding through lovely country with a lovely guide, this is the place for you.

“Horseback Riding At Its Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

What a perfect way to start our morning after camping near Julian. We were welcomed into the Kenner Ranch as if we were long time friends. My son had never been on a horse before and Kathleen Kenner was patient, knowledgable and wonderful company on the ride. The scenery along the trails was spectacular. The horses were very well taken care of and absolutely beautiful. Before starting on the trails, Kathleen took the time to teach us the basics of riding. Although the Ranch is difficult to find because there are no signs, once you arrive, expect a relaxing, soothing and fun experience. My son and I will frequent this place any time we find ourselves near Julian again.

“Wonderful Afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

Spent the better part of the day with Kathleen Kenner on her horses and really had a wonderful time. We trailered the horses to an area about 20 min from her farm and then rode for hours in the woods out to beautiful meadows. Very relaxing and peaceful. Her horses are real horses that require skill and not just ones trained to follow the leader. Kathleen has great knowledge of the area and was a wonderful person to chat with along the way.
