“Miniature Horses”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

It's always worth a 5-10 minute stop at Quicksilver Ranch to observe their miniature horses up close. There's no fee.

“Miniature horses!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We loved seeing the miniature horses (you can even pet the very young ones). Admission is free (donations accepted). It's a delightful place to stop, particularly with children.

“nice place to see”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

ON our trip to Solvang we stopped here to see the horses. They have different areas to view the horses. No information or staff to inforrm you, worth a quick stop,if you are in the area, would not travel a long way to get here.....

“Wonderful for a quick visit, especially if you're traveling with kids”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Quicksilver Ranch has the cutest mini-horses! It's not a petting zoo, but is a place where you can look at the adorable horses. I would have been happy to pay a few bucks in admission,but it's completely free to visit. Definitely not a place you'll want to spend hours at, but great for a leisurely walk around and a break from traveling. I would plan 15 to 20 minutes; that's about how long I stayed and it was plenty to see all the horses.

“Miniature ponies”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Darling ponies. We just drove in, parked the car, and walked around. No one came out of the house or barn to talk to us. Not much to see, just a lot of little ponies, but kids would be delighted.
