“Horseback Riding At Its Best!”

Kenner Ranch Riding, Discovery and Development Center
Reviewed April 30, 2012

What a perfect way to start our morning after camping near Julian. We were welcomed into the Kenner Ranch as if we were long time friends. My son had never been on a horse before and Kathleen Kenner was patient, knowledgable and wonderful company on the ride. The scenery along the trails was spectacular. The horses were very well taken care of and absolutely beautiful. Before starting on the trails, Kathleen took the time to teach us the basics of riding. Although the Ranch is difficult to find because there are no signs, once you arrive, expect a relaxing, soothing and fun experience. My son and I will frequent this place any time we find ourselves near Julian again.

Spent the better part of the day with Kathleen Kenner on her horses and really had a wonderful time. We trailered the horses to an area about 20 min from her farm and then rode for hours in the woods out to beautiful meadows. Very relaxing and peaceful. Her horses are real horses that require skill and not just ones trained to follow the leader. Kathleen has great knowledge of the area and was a wonderful person to chat with along the way.

Perfect choice! This was a wonderful location to ride among oaks and pastures with cows and a windmill. The owner, Kathryn, let us be involved as much or as little as we wanted and we learned about horse behavior and tack, as well as how to really ride instead of mounting a preprogrammed horse. We learned a few new things even though I've owned a horse in the past and my new-to-riding husband had an equally pleasant experience. We asked to brush our horses after our ride and it was wonderful. The atmosphere was relaxed and realistic, and the property was lovely. It was so very close to town and we intend to do this again!

Kathleen and family were the most welcoming people we have ever met. We spent 3 hours with the family enjoying their beautiful property and learning all about their family of horses. We had the best time riding and felt very safe with Kathleen. The trails were incredible and the horses were amazing. We would (and will) go back to the Kenner Ranch. The experience was very personal and we felt like we were accepted as part of the family. It is a wonderful place for people of any age to visit.
