My husband, son and I just got back yesterday from our 3 night stay. This was our second year going and we are planning on going again next summer too. As I have told many people, don't get scared off by the price quote, your stay is well worth every penny. The food is absolutely delicious and so plentiful, the... More

Rocking Horse Ranch is a fun place to take a family for a few days. We stayed for two days, one night with our 5 year old. There was enough to keep him busy for that time period. I don't think a third day would have been as fun. We left right as it was starting to feel old. We... More

Regarding your comment on our pricing, please keep in mind that we are a boutique destination with only 113 guest rooms (and a staff of nearly 300). This allows for no long lines for the use of our... More

This place was a great choice for a multigenerational family with kids from 8 to 22. There are so many activities and surprises. Pick up baseball and basketball games make new friends and the riding is a great time for "walkers" as well as advanced equestrians. With 500acres the trail ride is lovely and cool in the hot summer. We... More

I went with my 14 year old who is a very good rider, I am a bit of an amateur. What seems to set RHR aside from other ranches is the ability, for advanced riders, to canter, three two four times per one hour ride. There are six rides per day, on our third and forth days he rode five,... More

There was so much to do (mountain tubing, horseback riding, rifle range, 2 pools, rock wall, fun barn, miniature golf, kayaking, paddle boats, banana boat, shuffleboard, tennis, racquetball, pony rides, day camp, magic...

We arrived at the ranch for a weekend of beautiful riding and we had the best experience yet. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted by Derek and Kimel then a quick and simple check in with Maria, all so hospitable and top quality as usual.
