They have a lot of ponies- looking nice and round ( maybe a little too round). Nice young woman helping out there- short one hour rides for kids in the nearby forest. Decent outdoor ring for pony riding.

This place is laid-back, customer oriented, SUPER kid-friendly, and the owner is a sweetheart. Muddy and a bit messy, but hey, what do you expect from a Northwest ranch? Very fun attitude there!
