Absolutely loved it!!! Riding through the beautiful countryside and lake our wrangler Anthony was a great guide, friendly, professional and made the ride fun and enjoyable. Not your standard horse trail ride. I highly recommend this. :) Thanks again from Lauren

My son has been asking to ride horses, so I found this place online. It was a little difficult to find because there aren't great signs from the highway, but the staff was very helpful on the phone to guide us there for our little buckaroos excursion. My son had a great time brushing the horse, learning about Bo (spelling) and what he ate, did all day, etc. He got to ride a sweet horse on his own and even got to trot a little. He loved it. Our wrangler was very accommodating and reviewed safety information with the riders, while another employee was great to answer my questions as I hung back with my 16 month old. There are lots of animals to see--dogs, cats, goats, sheep, and rabbits. It was a good experience for both my boys.

Hey 800KathyD, thanks so much for the kind review. I'm very happy to read that you and your sons enjoyed your visit. We love sharing our horses with curious kiddos as well as adults -- Bo really enjoys getting visitors too! Once your youngest is a bit older, we'd love to host you all again for a trail ride!

I just took my first trip to Austin. The trip was for work, but since I've never seen the city, I wanted to take an extra day for some exploring. I am an experienced rider and try to get on a horse in every city, state, country, continent I can. Most of the time, I understand that I will just get the basic novice trail ride with tired horses, but when I saw the website for Texas Trail Rides, I was hopeful it would be different and it was! When I arrived on the 350 acre ranch far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to get there w/in a 30 minute drive, I found that I was the only rider on my trip. Jessica was an awesome guide and my handsome boy Ranger was a perfect gentleman. The ride wasn't too fast or too slow and went through some beautiful country that is hard to come by in Los Angeles where I'm from. The entire ride felt personal, friendly, safe and FUN!!!! Thank you Jessica, Ranger, and everyone at Texas Trail Rides for making my first trip to Austin so special. I will be back!

We had Jessica and she was great. Fun and interesting talk and information. I would recomend anyone in austin to go for this ride. They sure need a better description on how to get there though. A more detailed description. Apart from that 5 star!
