If you are a horse-lover it is definitely the place to go! We enjoyed a half-day ride in the mountains and an overnight package including excellent dining.

Our visit was great! I brought my granddaughters for a quick get away before school started. We had a great time! They were scared at first of the horseback riding, and by the second day, they were pros!!

Needed a break to get away and it did the trick. Kids couldn't determine whether Disney or Circle Bar B was better... Great family time. Staff really helped make the stay memorable.
