We signed up my four and 6 and 4 year old for the buckaroos Trailride. The staff was wonderfully friendly and very accommodating. Experience overall was absolutely wonderful! The horses were well maintained and of appropriate demeanor for little ones. My kids were very happy with their Texas horse riding experience!

Where to start. The ranch is beautiful but so modest. Our tour guide Dwayne was such a cool guy. He showed us the ropes and made us 100% comfortable. I did the open trail ride with 3 friends, 2 of them total beginners. We saw many deer and buzzards and Dwayne told us all about the wildlife. We trotted and... More

Do you notice when someone seems to have the perfect job for them? Haley with Texas Trail Rides does. She was an ideal guide who clearly loves her job. We were so impressed with her! We scheduled a 1.5 hour ranch ride that ended up being on an oddly blustery day for early May in Texas, but the wind and... More

Went here with my older teen sons and we had a blast. This is the hill country. You cannot see Austin and you will wonder what other way would be best to see central Texas hill country that with the help of the Texas Trail Rides.
