We took our family of 5 on a one hour ride on July 9, 2013. Our party included parents in their early 40's with limited riding experience and three children who had never ridden - ages 5, 9, and 11. They put my 5 year old on a sweet old horse that just followed along behind the leader and did not require any effort. The other horses we had were very calm and gentle as well. The ride was a full hour or more, after we spent a good 40 minutes getting everyone in our large group loaded on their horses. They pick your horse specifically for you and your size and your riding experience so that took some time. The ride was a slow walk which is perfect for beginners. Plus the views were so incredibly amazing that it was nice to go at a slow pace and not have to worry about steering your horse. They have a professional photographer who will take group and individual pictures of you during the ride while you are on top of the mountain. They sell them for about $30 per pictures (digital on a flash drive that they provide) or $100 for all that they took which is 3 different individual poses for each person in your party and the group photos. We went ahead and paid for the all. The photos were just beautiful and it was worth the money to not have to worry about taking pictures ourselves while riding the horse. I feel like the ranch takes good care of their horses.
