This was one of the more favorite trail rides we've done. Beautiful setting, experienced but relaxed Wranglers and appropriate horses for the skill levels. They looked healthy and very well taken care off. What I enjoyed most is that we had a bit of freedom...More

We haven't been back in years. All the more surprising this new addition to the Iacovetto´s activities at Saddleback Ranch. Great reception, phenomenal scenery and outstanding service. The steak is *****. Not to be missed.

Best riding experience we've had. The ranch is on 8000 acres and they let you take your horse where you want vs. going in a straight trail ride like others in the area. We had a great guide and got to see lots of spots...More

Horses are well taken care of. Ride was scenic with plenty of photo time. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Daughter had allergic attack and staff sent a ATV to get. Well worth the money and time.
