The Hideout is one of those places you hope exists. And it does. My husband and I stayed here for four days for some of our honeymoon and it ticked almost every box for us. We were both brought up with horses (the English way! which we were mocked for incessantly while we were there...) and we had always wanted...

When I first began my research for a mother/son trip, I knew that I wanted some sort of horseback riding to be the main focus. As urban dwellers I am always a bit wary of the "middle of nowhere" and usually much more comfortable with an abundance of people and structure. So I had narrowed our vacation destinations to a...

The food, the locale, 25 interesting guests, diverse activities, the staff, and of course, the riding...all were superb, wonderful, AMAZING! The three of us have very different interests, and each of us had one of the best vacations ever, hands down. My 17-year old daughter spent every minute in the saddle, include two cattle drives, and is already planning to...

When my family of five was ready for a guest ranch vacation out West, we had a long and varied list of criteria. The Hideout surpassed our expectations and constantly impressed us in ways we never expected! I'll provide the Mom's perspective… The riding experience in our family varies greatly -- I've shown Quarter Horses at a national level for...

I don't even know how to begin to express what a wonderful family vacation that we had at the Hideout. We were very beginner riders looking for a family adventure and the staff at The Hideout delivered and then some. The best way to describe the owners, managers, wranglers and culinary staff is "authentic hospitality". You could tell that everyone...

It's hard to imagine a better guest ranch experience than the one provided by The Hideout. The terrain is spectacularly varied - mountains, high county desert and lush canyons - and each beautiful in its own way. The horses are fit and responsive and the wranglers are highly skilled and personable. The accommodations are great and the facility itself is...
