We recently went horseback riding and this was a GREAT experience! The wranglers were very friendly and knowledgeable and they were very patient. We had a great time riding, our wrangler, Lou was a host of information and she kept up the conversations all through the ride. I would definitely go again!

Corey, Mac and Tony were excellent wranglers! So fun, knowledgeable and great personalities! My husband and I have horses and always enjoy trail riding whenever we are in beautiful country. The cattle drive far exceeded any trail ride because we were able to have a nice trail ride plus we drove 95 head of cattle ---even went thru a field... More

We visit Saddleback at least twice a year - the family that runs it makes it fun for everyone. From tubing in the winter, to 4 wheelers in the summer, and don't forget the horseback riding - Saddleback is on my kid's list every visit!!! ❤️

My 9 and 6 year old had a blast! Guides were great. Answered lots of questions and we all enjoyed the scenery. Weather was so mild it didn't matter that we were riding in the afternoon. Such a near way to see the ranch life in Steamboat! We did the 2-hour ride.

We went with a big group and they were great accommodating all of us. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. The scenery was picturesque. I can't wait to come back in the winter!

2-hour ride was very good for teenager and tween. Great slower pace to enjoy this expansive ranch (if you want more adventure you will probably want to check out their cattle drive). Super well-run operation with great equipment and knowledgeable staff!

We had a variety of riders of all levels and Saddleback Ranch accomodated us perfectly. The horses are SO FRIENDLY and gentle. They know the land, they know the commands, and they are just happy to get out on a beautiful walk. I highly recommend visiting Saddleranch.

Great to be back on a horse after many years. Beautiful mountain environment. Great horses - easy to ride, obedient [though sometimes with a little persuasion]. The horses are walking most of the time, with the occasional short trot, but no cantering [which is fine by me]. They have to negotiate ditches and mountain brooks, up- and downhill. All in... More
