We enjoyed our ride, but witnessed Stan(owner), speaking to an employee asking a question in a very harsh manner. He is condescending, extremely rude and doesn't care in the least if you had a good experience. What a shame.

When you arrive at this place please don't let your first impressions scare you. The owner and some of the workers are from Eastern Europe and their accent makes them a bit difficult to understand but don't let that bother you. We were both very nervous about riding horses as we hadn't in over three decades! The young man that... More

Family of five (total novices!!) went horseback riding. Our three children have never rode before and the experience didn't disappoint. Upon arrival the owner was very invested in ensuring our safety and talking to the kids (ages 12, 10 and 8) about having confidence, and control of their horse. Asked them questions to ensure they understood how to use the... More

Not a typical trail ride... We had so much fun! Devon was our guide and he connected with our kids and made sure to really include them in the fun. Would definitely recommend this place and ask for Devon!

If you like riding your ATV's at 5 miles per hour on a flat pasture in circles than this place is for you. If, not don't waste your time. Also, go to the bathroom before you arrive. You literally have to use an outhouse that stinks to high heaven.

My wife and I visited and greatly enjoyed the riding and atv package. Garrett was our guide for both activities. He was courteous, helpful and was perfect for our group. We rode (free range along a general path) for two hours in the morning. Through open range and woodland it was all interesting. The horses were all great and well... More

My daughter and I had a fantastic ride this morning with Devon as our wrangler. Our horses, Nacho and Gypsy were great - very responsive but still spunky and fun to ride. Highly recommend this ranch for all levels of riders.

We booked the 2 hour ride and had Garret and Kevin as our wranglers and they were great! Ride: Alpine, Pedro, Midnight, and Trigger. The horses were wonderful and the lunch was really good. I would highly recommend this place.

Took my two daughters, 10 & 12, and two nieces, age 9, for a two hour horseback ride, and we all really enjoyed it. Breathtaking scenery, great guide (Devon), and horses and tack were in good shape. They want you to ride spread out side by side rather than ride in a nose to tail row, which is great, and... More
