If you don't want to walk in a single file line on a trail with a horse that is as bored as you, go here! If you actually want to ride a horse, truly branch out on your own and gallop through some stunning scenery go here! We stayed in the saddle for about 10 hours but the full experience... More

Our GPS did not take us to the right place. If you are traveling from La Verkin toward Zion National Park, then it's the first road to the left after mile marker 19. When you arrive, don't expect white picket fences or Arabian horse stalls, this is an authentic Southwestern ranch experience. The owner and his staff make due with... More

Hey, Devin S... We wish GPS systems were full proof too. We put up a correct map pin on our website in hopes that folks would access us from there instead of ending up down the road. Sorry that soiled the start of an otherwise memorable day at the ranch. Thanks for reaching out on our TripAdvisor page for other... More

This was an amazing experience. We were a little unsure going in because we had done some riding but not very much and we had our two kids. The guides are fantastic.

Our family of 5 (boys ages 10,14,16) had a great time on this adventure, with the boys having only ridden on a nose-to-tail trail ride once before.

My friend and I went on our first ride with Jacobs Ranch. We had the best time. The guides are both fun and excellent.

Exciting rides through trails, across... More

BLUF: Girlfriend and I went in the off-season. It was just the two of us. It was awesome! Disclosure to my experience with Jacob's Ranch. From what I have gathered from the less than positive reviews written by other people, the consensus seem to be that in a larger group the fun factor diminishes.

Howdy, TheUngreenCynic.... Thanks for chiming in on our TripAdvisor page after your ride. We're always a little taken aback by folks who come for a "Real Deal" cowboy experience but are surprised that the land is rugged and natural.

This was a full day of riding. We started with picking the horse we wanted, going through some training, and then off to hours of riding. We stopped for lunch (brought our own food, and placed it in saddlebags) and had fun talking to the wranglers on our trip. Grandma (age 65) and granddaughters (12 and 9) say "awesome!"
