My family and I had a great experience riding horses at the Big Rock Dude Ranch. The horses were very tame. My daughter was very nervous riding into the mountains, but after the experience, she could tell that the horses had done the trails several times before and that she had nothing to worry about. We had 12 horses in our group, and all of them walked in a nice single file line and none of them got out of control. They were all well trained.
