We had a wonderful time, the horses are well looked after. It's better to bring your snacks and drinks with you and a cushion for those that do not like to sit on bench surfaces. Very entertaining and an afternoon well spent.

This is a training facility / show. Enjoyed the evening. The last performance could be a little shorter. If you go, sit under the trees ! Recommend seeing this.

I guess I was expecting more, as after 20 minutes I was somewhat bored. Had to wait until the last 10 minutes for the horses to perform their high rear kicking, and standing upright. The day we were there a rider was thrown from the...More

We were surprised to find so many folks at the Ranch. We figured that would be a few folks with lawn chairs but found large bleachers with 800+ people there. We enjoyed the Lipizzan's going thru their routine. It was evident that all the riders...More
