Having never been on a horse before, the 2 hour photo opportunity ride was perfect for us. Kind guide, easy riding. Terrific photo opportunities.

My wife and I went on a relaxing cattle drive with Lee. Lee was very patient and explained everything to us. The 3 of us managed to round up 52 cattle and we had a ball. We walked a little funny for a while but had a great time.

They were organized, attentive, and made sure everyone was comfortable with the horses, who were all on their best behavior! :) A great experience that we would highly recommend to every couple and family.

The horses are well trained and the establishment was... More

Our children did a trail ride and we did an evening meal at the lodge. Both events were outstanding and very enjoyable. The employees were all very knowledgeable and friendly.

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!!! ❤️
