Fall Ride

We had a wonderful time doing the 1 hour horseback ride! Our guide was wonderful! We will be making this a yearly tradition and hope to take a sleigh ride there this winter!

My daughter and I booked this very quickly and are so happy we did! We had two great guides, Megan and Will, who made sure everyone was comfortable and safe on their mounts. The scenery was amazing, the trails were woven into deep woods, ravines, and streams. We definitely want to come back on our next trip to Michigan!

We had a group of 7, ages from you 10-72, with no riding experience to lots of experience. We all had a great time. The horses were well cared for, the trail was beautiful, our wrangler was kind, knowledgeable and pleasant company. Great experience and we look forward to going back!

Its been along time since we rode a horse. The group at Rainbow Ranch made our group of 6 feel very comfortable and matched us up with the right horses. My 8 and 2 year old Grandsons had a blast. All of the horses in our group of 8 were very well behaved and nobody had any problems.

I've always been intimated by horses. BUT, I desired to horseback on a trail for a while now. I said I don't mind being on a bigger horse (being higher off the ground), but had no experience, and wanted a very docile horse. That was honored, and I couldn't have been given a horse that suited my personality better. Always... More
