I first went to The Ranch in 2017 and have gone back every year since. The horses and guides are great, tours are on time and they take your photos for free. The trail is nice going from the fields into a wooded area for some variety in scenery. I find it to be a a nice relaxing experience.

The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly! I am an experienced horsewoman, but was accompanying my husband and a friend, who are newbies. Horses seem healthy and well cared for, and while I wish there was a bit more than walking, I had no worries that my guests would be anything but fine

Hello Janet,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at The Ranch. We're happy to hear that you felt your guests were in capable hands.

While our trail rides do cater to beginner riders we do realize they can be a little underwhelming for more experienced riders. We do have a membership program available for more advanced riders which ultimately leads to individuals being able to take horses out independently.

We had an amazing time at The Ranch! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience! This was my second time riding in my life and I was a bit nervous, but the ride was so well organized and guided that I really enjoyed this adventure.

You need to arrive at least half an hour before the ride for briefing where the Ranch staff provide instructions on how to guide the horses and the basic skills. They were very friendly, patient and professional. They then select a horse for you based on your size. I had a lovely beautiful gentle Miley, she was so well trained, followed the instructions and the riders in front of her without even being told and I feel like we really connected! We then proceeded on our ride in a single file - mostly a gentle walk, but a few "throttles" as well. They have huge beautiful territory so we went through fields and meadows and the woods. The ride lasted exactly an hour. The staff did a really good job guiding us and taking pictures throughout the ride. I have beautiful shots to share and remember the experience by! I would definitely do it again and recommend to everyone I know!

One minor feedback: I would suggest more staff to assist with "disembarkment" after the ride. My horse followed the horse before her into the barn while I was still seated: I wasn't sure how to get off on my own and didn't react fast enough to stop her.
