I highly recommend you make a stop here if you are near Solvang. There is no charge for admission or parking. There are lots of mini horses to look at while they are grazing on the grass.

Manage to see some small horses in this ranch. According to online information, we can feed the horses, but unfortunately, maybe we visited during holiday therefore we didn't manage to feed the horses.

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
