These horses were adorable, but after 5 minutes of squeezing fingers through the gate, my children were done. The horses and facilities looked well kept and clean.

This ranch is for sale so they may not be around much longer. They have miniature horses that you can walk around and look at. They were fun to see and watch the younger ones chase each other around. There is no charge to walk...More

If they aren't too busy, they answer questions and let you know how wonderful the miniature horses are to have as pets. My friend who has a larger area was very tempted to purchase a miniature horse. They are adorable. It is free to look...More

It was a great stop on the way to Solvang! The foals were SO SOFT and walked up to the gate to get some back scratches. The adult ponies were adorable too but less interested in us. They run on donations and it’s going to...More

So beautiful and the owners are so gracious to let the public wander about. Beautiful grounds and the miniature horses are so happy. One baby for this visit. So cute and lots of photos!

My wife wanted to visit there during our Anniversary trip so we stopped by. We arrived and nobody was there to greet, give information or direction. So it was waste of time... The horses were hella cute though!

You are free to wander around the ranch to view the miniature horses in both open fields and pens. Unfortunately, you can't pat them. Horses are raised for sale, but no cost to ooh and aah over them.

This is a ranch that has a long driveway that you drive down and park along the side or just inside the Ranch area. There is no one there and there's no payment required you just get out and look at the horses. We were lucky... More
