“Perfect Introduction to Horses near Anza Borrego”
Reviewed April 28, 2005

We camped in the Anza Borrego desert during the wildflower season but wanted to include something more memorable for our kids and stumbled across the Integrity stables at Kenner Ranch - a true family operation.

This is one of the few places where younger kids can ride on trails and the experience exceeded our expectations. It is also the only place in the area that could easily handle a family of 6.

The Kenner family, Kathleen and Brian, takes a hands on role in making sure every thing works perfectly. While we were getting each horse ready to ride, the weather started coming in and they helped us get warmer. When the weather got bad they cut the ride short but were flexible and set a time the next day to pick up where we let off.

Despite the wildfires, The ranch is in good shape and the trail goes around the perimeter of the property, into the mountains then down through the valleys and meadows. We visited in March of 2005 so the ranch had received a lot of rain and the green was everywhere. In the higher parts, the trees were burned out. The only upside to the destruction was better views of the surrounding valley.

Kathleen was aided by her partner Penny and husband brian, three intelligent people who have a lot to share about horses, Julian, and the historical farm they manage. They were great!
