It was a surprise for my sister and a friend that celebrate birthdays on the same day. We all had such a wonderful time. Jordon was our guide and she made the trail ride so much fun. Would love to do it again!
Thank you to the Ranch and 6 stars to Jordon!

I have booked a group twilight ride with The Ranch twice, and I cannot say enough good things about this facility. We've always had a great time/experience both times. All the ride leaders/employees work hard to ensure you have a great experience. They are very accommodating, and most importantly you can see the horses are loved and well cared for. I would highly recommend this experience, and we definitely will book another twilight group ride with you folks in the spring. Thank you for all you do for the customers and the horses.

My family and I booked a trail ride for my son's 14th birthday. We had an amazing time and he had an enjoyable and memorable birthday! We loved visiting the horses before and after our ride in the barn. Our ride was beyond amazing. What beautiful land and trails. Our guides were very helpful and knowledgeable, and their love of the horses was very endearing. We will definitely be back for my younger son's 12th birthday. Thank you.

This place is the best place ever
I was expecting something nice but this was beyond expectations
The ranch team are very sweet they are kind and humble and they are so cooperative and understanding
They explain in a very well understood way for those who have never been on horses
And they calm you down if you are nervous
Highly recommended
Place is so quite and mesmerizing scenery is fabulous and the horses are pretty well trained and cooperative
If you haven't been to the ranch for a horseback ride... what are you waiting for? 😃

Awesome trail ride! We have done many (PEI, Florida, Italy, among others) and this one ranks #1. The staff took the time to demonstrate what riders needed to do, not do, and pay attention to. They explained the terms they would use, how they would refer to riders, and made everything crystal clear. The result? A problem-free ride through some beautiful terrain with no hassles! And the horses were awesome too! Many thanks to everyone at the Ranch. We will be back!

They won’t allow children to register for riding lessons without proof of covid vaccination. That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve experienced. Children can go to school, camp, playgrounds, and gymnastics lessons freely but they are risking the safety of the Ranch staff? There is greater risk of my child getting sick or injured there than her giving their staff covid.

It was my daughter's first time horseback riding and she loved it.
There was time allocated to describe the steps and how to handle horses during the ride. Trainers were patient and very pleasant.
We will definitely be back.
